The Lodge

Reflecting the colonial verandah style of a bygone era, the camp’s spacious main lodge area offers wide views of the Zambezi River towards the World Heritage Site of Mana Pools in neighbouring Zimbabwe.

With a courtyard and a fish pond at the heart of the lodge, its open plan design includes two lounges, indoor and outdoor dining areas and the Selous Bar which opens up to our swimming pool. Tastefully integrated are the Boardroom, with its growing library of novels and reference books, the Baines’ Trading Post and two private work stations where you can comfortably catch up with Email or download your photographs of the day.

The boma-style fire place is lit every evening and during the cooler winter evenings the fireplaces in the bar and in the dining area offer extra comfort.

In timeless Africa, there are no set mealtimes. Breakfasts, brunches and lunches are a casual affair prepared in Camp, out on the river or in the bush, tailored to suit your safari activities and personal preferences. In the evening, we invite you to join fellow guests for refreshments before you enjoy a variety of signature dishes prepared by our local chefs.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for an unforgettable experience. We were thoroughly spoilt in every aspect. You have created an unbelievably luxurious and tasteful camp in such a remote and wild location.
