Located within the Shinde private concession, the camp offers an enviable mix of both land and water activities. It is nestled under the shade of ancient jackal berry, water fig and knob thorn trees and built in a remote and exclusive setting on the edge of the permanent waters of the northern Okavango Delta. Shinde Camp is surrounded by clear waterways teeming with birdlife and game, and offers a wide variety of activities all year round.
The camp consists of eight large safari tents on timber decking furnished in elegant African style and featuring open gauze windows and en-suite bathrooms with a separate toilet. The main lodge, known as the ‘tree house’, is a multi-tiered structure with the dining room joined by stairs and wheelchair-friendly ramps to several lounging areas, each offering different aspects across the delta.
The boma area at the foot of the lodge provides a meeting point for afternoon tea and a venue for stargazing in the evenings while enjoying a drink around the campfire. Shinde also features a curio shop and a swimming pool. Within the camp is the Shinde Enclave, a perfect choice for a family or small group. The enclave is a camp within a camp, and offers guests their own private deck, dining facilities and an exclusive host/guide.
Activities at Shinde include: game drives in open 4×4 safari vehicles which offer some of the finest dry land game viewing in Botswana with regular sightings of lion and leopard; exploring the water ways in a mokoro (traditional dugout canoe); guided nature walks and night drives; motor boating and sunset cruises. It is also possible to enjoy a longer outing by motorboat to the Gadikwe lagoons in the Moremi Game Reserve to view breeding colonies of herons, egrets, pelicans and storks (August to December). For fishing enthusiasts, Shinde provides basic fishing equipment to try your luck with tiger fish, bream, pike and catfish during the season.
