Stay in Timeless Elegance,
with Wildest Africa on your doorstep

Ultimate Experience

Amidst life’s many distractions, nature’s beckoning song is ever resonant.

We are here, serving as a sanctuary for those attuned to its melody. Set upon the banks of the mighty Zambezi, nestled perfectly near the Lower Zambezi National Park and opposite Mana Pools. Baines’ River Camp is the paragon of luxury African Safari destinations.

The Lower Zambezi is steeped in fantastical history

For more than a decade, we have blended elegant getaways with the wild heart of the African bush. Our soul desire: to create an unforgettable adventure for every person that steps through our doors. Ecologically, the unique Zambezi ecosystem is home to a litany of plants and wildlife found nowhere else, along with all of the animals synonymous with any African Safari. These waters have facilitated the trade and movement of many tribes for thousands of years. Today, they gift you the chance to get up close and personal with the abundant life that calls this area ‘home’.

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
