Shinde

We enjoyed the Shinde Camp and were glad to have gotten there as there was no email from Expert Africa to let us know what time are flight was to leave on Oct 15. Very luckily for us the woman at the Maun guest house did the research for us & delivered us where we needed to be.
Great walking safaris with Simon.

Shinde Camp review

Shinde Camp was the highlight of the trip.

The staff were wonderful, so friends and engaging. Their singing was wonderful. The camp is on the edge of the Okavango Delta so we had excellent trips in a mokoro and on the motor boat.

The guide, Sam, was also excellent and very informative. I felt quite safe when he took us on a walking safari and also a night safari.

Can't recommend this camp highly enough

Shinde Camp review

Lovely location and staff were very helpful. Food delicious and plenty of it.Loved that there was a choice of land and water activities. The only downside I would have to say it that when sharing a jeep with other people is that you don't learn as much. One day we were lucky enough to have the jeep to ourselves and then the next day we had to share, so we found that we were being given the same information for the new couple that had arrived. Rather frustration when we have come all that way and didn't feel we had learnt anything new. It would be great somehow if each campsite did a short questionaire to see what knowledge visitors already had and would like so that they could put similar people together in a jeep.

Power boat / fishing trip good but makoro not very interesting as reeds too high to see anything

Rooms were very well appointed and well serviced including laundry

Shinde Camp review

It was a bit of a shock coming from the solitude of a mobile camp to a lodge with other tourists, however it was a great lodge and the rooms were fantastic - so spacious and comfortable.

In fact the whole lodge was designed really well - loved how it's been built to incorporate existing trees. Loved the staff and loved the fact that the managers and guides ate with the guests. Far more interesting talking to them rather than just other tourists 😊 Impressed too with how they remembered everyone's names! Food not as good as Andrew's camp but I'm not sure anyone could match that.

Our guide, Ezekiel, was fantastic and really knowledgeable - he also had the most amazing eyesight. Was so easy to arrange different activities through him. Felt that nothing was too much trouble for him - that goes for all the staff there.

Wonderful start to our safari

A very knowledgeable, experienced and enthusiastic manager led an equally knowledgeable, enthusiastic and friendly team. Cleanliness, comfort and catering were of a very high standard. We loved the surprise bush dinners and sundowners.

Wilson was our very friendly, helpful guide who rapidly picked up our interest in birds as well as animals and local history. The mokoro polers were equally forthcoming. All had excellent spotting skills.

There many great game sightings but we all particularly enjoyed watching the fish eagle and saddle-back storks catching and devouring fish.

Our time in Shinde was too short. Safaris included early morning and evening drives of very good length. No opportunity was wasted.

Checklist booklet of birds and animals is a great idea. Thanks

Only minor criticism: no wi -fi connection for BT users
