Overview of Shinde Camp

Shinde Camp is an intimate camp located on the edge of Shinde Lagoon in the heart of Botswana’s Okavango Delta. The main camp’s unique raised tree house offers spectacular views of the reeded waterways of the permanent channel, which is home to a fascinating variety of birdlife. The Okavango Delta is made up of permanent water areas as well as large dry regions home to a variety of animals, reptiles and birds, making this beautiful natural wonder perfect for exploring by vehicle, on foot or by traditional mokoro.

The camp’s relaxed luxury, personalised service, attention to detail and wide variety of activities ensures an authentic Delta safari in the heart of the Botswana wilderness. Explore the area with a professional guide on a morning walking safari, on a mokoro, or on a day or night game drive in specially designed vehicles.

‘Shinde’ means ‘tree squirrel’ in the local language and you may spot a few of these acrobatic creatures in the canopy above the lounge deck. As a guest at Shinde Camp, you also have access to the Gadikwe Heronry, an absolute delight for birders.

    Shinde camp was literally teeming with wildlife. During our stay we saw jackals, leopards, wild dogs, hyenas, many bird species, elephant, zebra, giraffe and even a honey badger. Our guide Moses was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. We also enjoyed an afternoon of fishing while staying at Shinde, and managed to catch about 20 tilapia and pike, so that was a real treat.As for the camp itself, the tent was comfortable and all the staff very friendly.
