General information

Shinde 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 eight tented camp is a photographer's delight. Its remoteness has ensured that the innocent wildlife has not been subject to the pressures of mass tourism.

One of the original camp sites in the Delta, it is the ultimate safari destination and renowned for combining the mystery of the crystal clear waterways, lily covered lagoons and palm islands with stunning game viewing. Indeed, Shinde offers some of the finest dry land game viewing in Botswana with regular sightings of lion and leopard. This abundant animal and birdlife make for spectacular photographic and viewing opportunities by mokoro (traditional canoe), boating and bush walks. For the fishing enthusiasts, Shinde offers fly-fishing trips, and the chance to test ones skills against a variety of species including the mighty tigerfish, probably the most challenging freshwater game fish of all!

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. Well-equipped delta craft may take you on an interesting trip where you will see fascinating breeding colonies of herons, egrets, pelicans and storks. Your guide will arrange walks; show you insects, as well as a wide variety of bird life and game. Shinde's abundant wildlife and the silent waters of the Okavango combine to make your stay a rare experience indeed!
