Wildlife - Sanctuary Baines' Camp

Botswana Baines' Camp  - 4

The fantastic array of wildlife here can be explored in 4x4 vehicles, by boat, canoe, or on foot. The delta has about 122 species of mammals, over 400 species of birds and 1300 species of flowering plants.

Whenever you are visiting, there is always something to be seen from the wooden deck surrounding the main dining room.

There's also a good chance of seeing lion, leopard, buffalo, cheetah, giraffe, impala, zebra, wild dog and hyena.
