Baines River Camp

Baines' River Camp is located about 9km (30 minutes’ drive) from the Royal Airstrip. The camp is set on the banks of the Zambezi and has more the feel of a boutique hotel in the bush than a typical safari camp. The solid structures and air-conditioning throughout the camp help with this feel as does the stylish décor.

The camp can accommodate up to 20 guests, taking children aged 6+. There are 6 ‘Explorer Suites’ which are spacious and very comfortable, in addition there is a 2-roomed cottage which is ideal for families and finally a couple of smaller and cheaper ‘Junior Suites’ which really are only for single travellers wanting to save a bit on costs.  

Although the camp is outside the National Park, the team are very good at compensating for this downside, typically guests will be boated down-stream into the Park where they will meet a vehicle in order that they can explore the more game-rich areas of the Park by car before again boating back to camp.  This can all take a bit longer than regular activities so it is not unusual to be offered longer trips that might incorporate a pic-nick in the bush.
