It is a luxurious camp and the smallest of those owned by Sanctuary Lodges.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
A mere 10-minute flight from the main airport at Maun, Stanley’s Reserve is the first stop on the journey from Maun to the Okavango Delta. The camp’s location makes for late flooding, often with water arriving in June/July.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
Surrounded by papyrus beds, the main area of Sanctuary Baines' Camp consists of a very pretty building elevated on stilts above the Boro River. This river enables the camp to offer water activities virtually all year. There’s also a pool and a small decking area, where open fires invite guests to relax after game drives.
The camp boasts five luxurious suites located by a hippo-filled lagoon. The rooms are very spacious, with ensuites and large four-poster beds that can be wheeled out onto the decking area for nights under the stars – a main selling point of the camp.
Game drives take place by day and by night, and other activities include walking safaris. Sanctuary Baines’ Camp has one advantage over its competition – the elephant interaction available in the reserve. Visitors have the opportunity to walk through Stanley’s Reserve with a herd of three elephants! This is one of the most exciting elephant experiences available in Africa, and in our view a major reason to consider this camp.
