Okavango Delta, Botswana
Set amidst open floodplains and permanent waterways, Shinde Camp combines the best of a land and water-based Okavango safari. The location is outstanding, mixing the high game density of Moremi Game Reserve with the intimacy of its own private concession. And the wildlife comes thick and fast when you’re gazing out from the wooden decks.
Each of the nine tented chalets follows a classic African design and has a very homely feel. There’s plenty of polished wooden furniture and a spacious en-suite bathroom. Five chalets gaze over the open plains, bringing plenty of exciting wildlife. A further three plus a honeymoon suite overlook the waterways, offering a completely different collection of animals. In between them all there’s a swimming pool and some spectacular dining and lounge areas.
We love how the camp uses a variety of activities to create a rounded impression of the Okavango Delta. Game drives, nighttime drives, guided walks, mokoro canoe rides, motorboat trips...it’s all tailored to your interests and you should stay at least three nights to make best use of it all. It’s rare to have such diverse activities, so close to Moremi Game Reserve.
The guiding is exemplary and we’d highly recommend this camp for the wildlife and wilderness experience.
