Shinde, meaning ‘tree squirrel’ in Setswana, is situated on the edge of an area of deep water and lagoons in the heart of the Okavango Delta, and is notable for its lushness and first-rate game. It's a well-established camp in a private reserve just to the north of the Moremi Game Reserve, and has long retained an excellent reputation for its guiding and wildlife.
Our view of Shinde Camp
Shinde is quite a traditional safari camp with a very atmospheric tree-house feel to the main area. The rooms are not particular special, but we have do like this camp for its generally excellent game-viewing and good mix of both water- and land-based activities.
It is a good year-round option for those wanting to sample a variety of activities in the Okavango, but spending a relatively short time in Botswana. It also works really well in combination with dry-area camps in both the Delta and the Kwando-Linyanti / Chobe areas.
