Shinde Camp, Okavango Delta
Roy Davies, Founder of World Discovery
“Shinde Lodge was totally renovated in early 2015 and is looking exceptionally good!!”
Nestled on a lush palm island in the heart of the northern Okavango Delta, Shinde is an intimate camp located on the edge of Shinde lagoon, teeming with animal and birdlife. The main camp’s unique tree house made of a multi-tiered raised dining/lounge area under canvas, set amongst the shade of ebony and mangosteen, complements the atmosphere of this original safari camp.
Shinde comprises eight twin-bedded classic safari tents, each with ensuite bathroom, hot and cold running water and flush toilet. Every possible comfort has been catered for – from generated electricity and a private viewing deck, through to a handy flashlight! Each tent, strategically positioned, offers splendid views, whether across the Delta’s mysterious waterways or open grasslands. Accommodation is generally twin share on comfortable three quarter beds, however double accommodation is available on request.
Shinde offers a diverse range of activities, having the ideal location affording both water and land activities throughout the year. Powerboats or mokoro provide a chance to experience the incredible bird, plant and reptile species found in the aquatic habitat of the Delta. Game drives are conducted in comfortable, specially designed vehicles together with a personal guide. Guided walks are also available for the more adventurous. For the fly fishing enthusiast, Shinde offers fishing for a variety of species such as tilapia and tiger fish.
