Located in the northern region of the spectacular Okavango Delta, the island camp at Shinde is just a stone’s throw from the elegant Shinde Lagoon, providing uninhibited viewing of a large population of animals and birds that rely on the lagoon for refreshment.
Shinde was refurbished in 2015. It’s eight stylish and spacious safari tents have been enlarged for an even more spacious room. Each tent has comfortable twin beds with double beds available upon request and a new en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower and elegant fixtures. Wide sliding doors lead onto the extended front decks where guests can relax and take in the open floodplains or the beauties of the unique waterways of the Delta. Other amenities include fans, an in-room safe, hair dryer, bathrobe, and flashlight.
The camp is located on a lush palm island within the world-famous Okavango Delta, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The papyrus-lined lagoon teems with an abundance of wildlife. The rare Sitatunga antelope can often be seen here, along with lion, hyena, and elephant, to name a few. The waterways teem with bird life with over 450 species found hereabouts including heron, egrets, and the rarer Pel’s fishing owl. Aquatic animals such as crocodiles and hippos are common sightings.
