One of the first camps to be built in Botswana (although newly rebuilt in 2020), Shinde is unique for its tree-house style design, with magnificent views of the lagoon in front. Sophisticated yet understated, Shinde offers a laid back, luxury safari experience.

Activities at Shinde

Shinde is situated on a private concession that allows guided walks, mokoro excursions and night drives in addition to game drives and motorboat trips. Shinde’s location in the Okavango Delta ensures permanent water access for year-round water activities and large dry areas for game drive routes. This blend of environments provides the habitat for a consistently wide variety of wildlife, including the elusive sitatunga antelope and a healthy population of leopards.

Game drives are conducted by a personal guide in comfortable, specially designed game drive vehicles. When out on game drives the window seat guarantee ensures no more than four guests per vehicle and individual use of the camera mount. For the more adventurous, guided walks are also available while fishing enthusiasts will enjoy fishing for a variety of species such as tilapia and tigerfish.

Fishing at Shinde

Fishing is available throughout the year (with exception of January and February), with excellent bream fishing from May to September and superb chances of landing tigerfish during September to mid-November.

Mokoro's at Shinde

This is a type of canoe typically used in the Okavango, that can propel through shallow waters by using a large pole to push down on the riverbed – similar to punting.
