Your nostalgic trip to Africa is just a short flight away.

If you’re an expat working and living in the UAE, we know that there are parts of home you yearn to return to. After all, Africa is in your blood. The lush scenery, the fantastic wildlife, the hearty food. There’s nothing quite like it anywhere in the world. And Baines’ River Camp, set upon the Zambezi, is here to warmly invite you to rediscover the African embrace.

Location & Travel Logistics

Everything at Baines’ River Camp is designed to make your stay effortless, including your journey to us. Getting to Lusaka is as simple as a Direct Flight from Doha or Dubai. We are a stone’s throw from an airstrip with daily charters to and from Lusaka, or an easy drive from the city for those who’d like to take in more of the scenery.

We’re going back again next year. There are so many places to choose from for a great experience, and we’re quite experienced, so we would not be going back if it were not perfect. ~ Anthony M, Australia, August 2022
