The Zambezi River's luscious shores, famed for land and water safaris, allow a multitude of wildlife to flourish from its nourishment. In the midst of this unspoilt African bush, on the northern bank of the Zambezi, you'll discover Baines’ River Camp.
Enchanting and everlasting experiences await you here. Baines’ River Camp offers the finest game-viewing, birding, and angling available anywhere on the Lower Zambezi. In addition to the first-class experiences you'd expect from a lodge of Baines' calibre; they also offer an array of unique activities that'll surprise and delight you.

Swap out an evening game drive for a boat cruise followed by a fun game of boule on the beaches of the Zambezi River. Game viewing from the river adds a different dimension to your safari. You can expect to see anything from a breeding herd of elephants bathing, ever-curious buffalo in the reeds, or the elusive African Skimmer.
