Shinde

Okavango Delta, Botswana

Poised on the seasonal Delta with the best of both water and land activities

Many camps in the Delta have gone for the semi-tented, platform look and Shinde is no different.  However, the designers clearly had a brainwave when they dreamed up the wagon-canopy roof for the dining room which is really quite funky. Shinde provides a compromise between comfort and a real wildlife/safari experience. Comfortable tents that manage to cater for all necessities without going OTT rest on wooden platforms overlooking the waterways of the Delta. Well located to assure good game viewing, the private nature of the concession allows for both night drives and guided walks (not possible within the parks) in addition to game drives and motor-boating.

Game-wise, you can expect to see plenty of elephant, buffalo, herbivores and lion and you have a good chance of seeing the rare sitatunga antelope. The camp offers fly and spin fishing all year fround, though the best months are between May and November).  Shinde suits those that enjoy a reasonable level of comfort and proximity to nature and its location means that it can make the best out of both the water and dry-land habitats of this part of Botswana.

Okavango Delta

The Okavango Delta is the largest inland Delta in the world and is incomparable to any other game destination in Africa.  A vast spread of channels, lagoons, forests and reed islands spreads across northern Botswana and disappears into the sands of the Kalahari.  As you can imagine, birdlife is amazing here and game viewing too is very special; not only because of the variety and number of animals but also because you can do a great deal by boat, giving a totally different perspective to the traditional bumpy, dusty game drives.

Botswana

Botswana safaris offer dramatic extremes.  On the one hand, the lush landscapes of the Okavango Delta and the Linyanti and Chobe River systems, on the other, the beautiful other-worldly expanse of the Makgadikgadi Pans and the Kalahari Desert.  The variety of habitats makes for varied animal and birdlife as well as beautiful scenery.
