Sanctuary Baines’ Camp, Okavango Delta

Just one of the astonishing things about walking alongside a mighty African elephant is actually how quietly the massive creature moves through the tangled bush. It’s a sensational moment on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Botswana, and yet the natural grace and confidence of the elephants gives you a feeling of supreme serenity.

And that is not the only moment of utter tranquillity you’ll experience at Baines’ Camp. Your luxurious suite stands on its own platform, amongst shading trees. Its teak veranda is lit by the soft glow of hurricane lamps; the perfect spot to take a bath and gaze at the stars. Or to sleep beneath the panoply of the African sky in a tented, four poster sky bed. The perfect end to a sensational day.
