The private Shinde Concession is a real Okavango wildlife hotspot, bordered to the south by the Moremi Game Reserve and neighbouring the renowned Vumbura and Kwara Concessions. Although only a relatively small area, the varying habitats within the reserve permit a full range of Delta activities, with Shinde Camp offering day and night game drives, walking safaris, river cruises and sometimes mokoro trips. In this way, it is neither a wet or dry camp, which makes it a very strong attraction for visitors hoping to experience a variety of Delta experiences within a limited timeframe.
One of the first camps in the Okavango Delta, Shinde was completely rebuilt in 2020 but retains its classic safari style. There are eight spacious tents on wooden decks overlooking a game rich plain. Each has en-suite facilities, and sophisticated furnishings plus a shaded viewing deck. The new main area has a wonderful tree house dining room, bar, sitting area and campfire overlooking permanent water, while there is a small swimming pool at ground level close to the tents.
This is a wonderful, authentic safari camp in a fantastic private reserve. There is a very strong big cat and predator presence here and you are also likely to see a diverse selection of antelope species, including tsessebe, red lechwe, kudu and sable, all sought out by some of Botswana’s most experienced guides.
