An ambitious upgrade for a Zambia river camp

A first-class wilderness experience on the banks of the Zambezi

A nature experience that’s worth flying for lies in Zambia: Baines’ River Camp (www.bainesrivercamp.com; from $495 per person per night all-inclusive) – a long-established (former two-star) set-up on the banks of the Zambezi, and an early champion of the Lower Zambezi Conservation Trust – has been given an ambitious upgrade. It will reopen this spring, offering full-service luxury to match the first-rate game and wilderness experience for which it’s known: eight private suites (two with outdoor showers) and wide verandas at river’s edge.
