Day by day itinerary
Fly UK to Maun & Maun to Sanctuary Baines' Camp
Catch your flight from London to Maun & Maun, before transferring to Sanctuary Baines' Camp next to the Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana.
Sanctuary Baines' Camp
You'll start your tour with a three-day stay at the Sanctuary Baines' Camp that's set on a raised platform high above the Boro River in a private concession bordering the Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana. The camp is Sanctuary's smallest, with only five luxurious suites. There are some fantastic activities that you can get stuck into during your stay, including daily game drives through the Okovanga Delta that's famed for its big cat and bird population.
One of the highlights of a stay at the camp is the unique elephant interacting activity in partnership with Living Elephants foundation, that allows you to walk with elephants, and to get an intimate view of how they live in their natural habitat. Other activities available at the camp include walking safaris that give you the opportunity to get very close to animals led by expert guides. Learn how to track and follow even the most elusive animals: a wonderfully educational experience. You will also get the opportunity to take mokoro and motorised boat excursions. These are one of the best ways to see wildlife around the camp, and are made of wood and fibreglass. In them, you can float around the lagoons and look for hippos and crocodiles gliding through the water.

During your stay at the camp, you can enjoy game drives as well as walking safaris. During your game drives, you will have the opportunity to see a fascinating array of animals. These include bush babies, puku, impala, hyena and leopard. On the open plains surrounding the camp there are also grazing herds of antelope that often attract predators. You can also take walking safaris, that are led by professional guides and an armed scout, and allow you to see some fascinating wildlife that’s hard to spot from a jeep.
