Shinde Camp is nestled on a lush palm dotted island on the edge of Shinde lagoon in the heart of the northern Okavango Delta of Botswana. Shinde Camp is relatively unusual in the Okavango Delta in being able to offer both land activities (game drives and bush walks) and water activities all year round. Shinde is surrounded by clear waterways teeming with birdlife and game.
Shinde Camp is built under the shade of large Mangosteen and Jackalberry trees. The unique dining/lounge area is known as the ‘treehouse’ with multi-tiered raised decks offering magnificent views over the Okavango Delta. Here the safari chefs offer imaginative meals cooked with flair and served in style around the communal dining table.
The camp has eight spacious twin-bedded safari tents with large glass doors and en-suite bathrooms with shower and flush toilet. Each tent is well positioned to enjoy views across the Okavango waters or the open grassland. There’s also a swimming pool to enjoy during the heat of the day.
Safaris at Shimde Camp
Safari activities are varied with expert guides to take you on open 4×4 game drives, boating and mokoro excursions throughout the year as well as game walks and fly fishing (with equipment available) for the more adventurous. Fishing yields a variety of species including Tilapia and tiger fish with the best time being summer from September to May. Shinde Camp has its own private concession so that night drives and walking are permitted and the game-viewing experience is exclusive.
Shinde Enclave – exclusive use camp
Shinde Enclave is a ‘camp within a camp’. It’s a private camp of three tents taken on an exclusive use basis perfect for groups of friends or for family safaris in Botswana as children from seven years are able to stay here. The tents, elevated on teak platforms, overlook vast papyrus and reed expanses of the Okavango Delta dotted with palm islands. The Shinde Enclave has its own bar/dining area/lounge overlooking the lagoon. A senior safari guide hosts you for private safari activities.
