Embracing a New Dawn at Baines’ River Camp

A Year of Transformation and Sustainability

Welcome to the Baines’ River Camp blog! This year has been monumental for us, marking the beginning of a New Dawn at Baines’ River Camp. Our journey has been focused not just on enhancing our guests’ experiences but also on staying true to our core ethos – creating an environment for travellers to reconnect with nature, create lasting memories, and deepen their appreciation for the natural world.

Leading the Way in Sustainability: Our Solar Power Initiative

We are thrilled to share a significant milestone in our commitment to sustainability: the completion of our new solar system. Baines’ River Camp has taken a significant leap towards environmental stewardship by harnessing solar power. This initiative ensures that our guests enjoy uninterrupted air conditioning – a crucial comfort during the hot months of September, October, and November. By relying on solar energy, we’re reducing our environmental footprint, reinforcing our dedication to a greener planet.

Culinary Excellence: Kitchen Upgrades

Under the expert leadership of Chef Rainer Iding, our kitchen has undergone a transformation. After a month of intensive training, our team is ready to offer an elevated dining experience that has already garnered glowing reviews. Our newly renovated kitchen serves up world-class cuisine, combining fantastic service with an unparalleled culinary journey. Guests have particularly raved about the evening bush braai, highlighting our commitment to delivering exceptional dining experiences.

Enhancing Explorations: New Vehicles and Boats

Adventure awaits at Baines’ River Camp, and we’re excited to announce the addition of a new land cruiser, a boat, and a set of canoes to our fleet. These new additions ensure that your explorations of the majestic Zambezi River and its surrounding wonders are as comfortable as they are memorable. Discover the beauty of Zambia in unparalleled comfort and style.

A Refreshed Ambience: Central Area & Suites

Our central area and Explorer Suites have undergone thoughtful upgrades, blending luxury with homeliness. We’ve introduced new outdoor furnishings, plush carpets, and advanced lighting solutions, all designed to enhance your comfort and experience. Our commitment to continuous improvement will see further enhancements into 2024.

Embracing the Wilderness: On-Site Walking Scout

In true Zambian spirit, we are proud to offer walking safaris, guided by our on-site scout. Zambia is renowned for these immersive walking experiences, and at Baines’ River Camp, guests can fully immerse themselves in the beauty of the wilderness. Explore the breathtaking landscapes on foot and connect with nature in the most authentic way.
