The Camp

You will feel at home from the moment you arrive at Baines’ River Camp, a luxurious and intimate safari lodge, set on the northern banks of the Zambezi River amid Tamarind and Jackalberry trees. A refreshing drink and a warm smile greet you in the Selous Bar on your arrival and "African time" automatically takes over. The Zambezi is in no hurry, nor should you be...

Baines' River Camp has been designed to accommodate most travellers, from families with young children, friends travelling together and honeymoon couples, to the single safari enthusiast, passionate photographers, corporate groups and intimate wedding parties.

You will find Baines' River Camp in Zambia's Lower Zambezi Valley, an authentic safari area where fences and tarred roads do not exist. With Africa's fourth largest river on our doorstep, land and water based game viewing activities on offer, exquisite accommodation, breath-taking sunsets, a passionate team to look after you and the gentle safari style that is so typical to Zambia, Baines' River Camp is the right choice for your stay in the African bush with as many first-world comforts as possible.

The camp can host up to 20 guests in a variety of accommodation options and offers an additional suite for tour leaders, private guides and pilots. The main lodge area is the heart of the camp, where all guests gather for meals, pre-dinner drinks, stories, a swim or a quiet read of one of the many books from our library.




Our second visit to Baines has only made us realise what a magical place it is and that we will have to return again! Thank you to everyone for making our few days here so memorable. Great fishing, park lunch, bush dinner etcetera.
