Shinde Camp is nestled on a lush palm dotted island in the heart of the northern Okavango Delta. Located at the edge of a lagoon, it is surrounded by clear waterways, which flow over yellow sands and past palm-fringed islands teeming with birdlife and game. This is a delight particularly for photographers. Its remoteness has ensured that the innocent wildlife has not been subject to the pressures of mass tourism. The island is especially favored by members of the antelope family, including the elusive sitatunga whose elongated and splayed hooves enable it to walk on the unstable beds of reeds floating on the water. The camp's delta craft take guests on an interesting trip to see breeding colonies of herons, egrets, pelicans and storks. The guide will arrange walks, show guests insects, as well as a wide variety of bird life and game.

Shinde has all year round water making it a great base for mokoro and boat trips. Day and night drives are offered here as well as bush walks. The camp is surrounded by open plains areas which are good sighting places for elephants and wild dogs.

Accommodation is in 8 large, twin-bedded safari style tents with windows, including one honeymoon tent. These private deluxe tents include en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold running water, walk-in showers and flush toilets. Shinde accommodates only 16 guests in total. Each tent has a private viewing deck offering incredible views of both worlds - grasslands and the delta. This full service tented camp includes incredible cuisine and dining in the Treehouse is a multi-tiered dining area and eating here is a special experience.

A unique feature of Shinde Camp is its exclusive private-use camp called The Enclave at Shinde, separate accommodation with all of the amenities. 3 new tents elevated on teak platforms overlook vast papyrus and reed expanses dotted with palm islands where frequent sightings of the elusive sitatunga occur. Guests may reserve the Enclave section of Shinde Camp for private use and includes a private boma and a private bar/dining area/lounge overlooking the lagoon and a personal chef and waiter/barman are specifically assigned to this facility and its exclusive guests. A senior guide hosts guests and will escort them on private game activities: morning, afternoon and evening game drives, game walks, mokoros, motor boats and excellent fishing. The minimum reservation is for three nights.

Client Rating for Botswana 5/5 from 120 reviews

Stunning location offering beautiful views over grass land and the delta. A very warm welcome by very warm and friendly staff who would do anything to make our stay as special as possible. It was like staying with a big family. The food was very good with lunch being our favorite. Our guide, N T became one of our family whilst we were there and he was so passionate about his work and wanted to teach us as much as possible. He really made our stay there extra special. The game had to be tracked and looked for but we saw most apart from hyena and rhino. The rooms were beautifully furnished and maintained. Highly recommend
