Description

Shinde Camp

Okavango Delta

Shinde Camp has recently been renovated to an elegance and charm of few other camps in the Delta. Tents have been expanded for greater comfort and space and incorporated a luxurious bathroom. Sliding doors leading onto the extended front decks which give beautiful views over the plains and the distant tree line. Elephant are frequent visitors. Accommodation is normally twin share on comfortable three quarter beds and double accommodation is available on request.

Due to its location Shinde offers both water and land activities year round. Motorboats or Mokoro excursions provide guests the opportunity to experience the incredible bird, plant and predator species. Game drives explore diverse habitats ensuring a wide variety of sightings from Leopard to the smaller Jackals and night drives are definitely worth a late night after dinner. Walking safaris are also offered at Shinde with knowledgeable guides who really expose the smaller creatures of the Okavango.

Situated in the Northern part of the Okavango Shinde is remote and there is plenty of ground to explore with excellent chances of rare bird species too.

Sundowners are often held on the banks of Shinde lagoon and bush dinners are a special occasion of honking hippo and elephants rustling the grass or breaking tree branches in the nearby forests. The diversity Shinde offers is fantastic, a short motorboat ride away is a huge lagoon that teems with bird life and the plains are equally rewarding for game viewing.
