Newly rebuilt to a high standard in 2020, Shinde feels like a new camp in a new area… built quite high up, your rooms feel like tree-houses.
Shinde started a bit of a trend in that they allow only 4 guests per vehicle giving you an automatic private vehicle if you have 4 in your party… there are some other lodges now providing the same service.
Its a welcome rebuild and honestly, like the next door concession, Kwara, it’s a fantastic wildlife area and as its situated near permanent Delta channels, can offer you the mixed activities of game drives and boating.
Besides the elephant, a wide variety of other game frequent the life-giving force of the Delta, including impala, lechwe, hippo, crocodile and lion.
The species you are likely to see roosting here include the yellow bill stork, marabou, open bill stork, darters, cormorants and slate egrets. Shinde area regularly reports sightings of the rare Pel’s fishing owl in addition to hyena, which has also become a rare sighting in this area.
Even more rare are the situanga antelope, which live in swamps and are very good swimmers. They may take to the water to evade predators such as leopards or wild dogs, lying submerged in pools with only their nostrils above the surface.
Courtesy of its location Shinde can offer both water and land activities year-round. Motorboats or Mokoro provide a chance to experience the incredible bird, plant and reptile species found in the aquatic habitat of the Okavango Delta. Game drives are conducted by a personal guide in comfortable, specially designed game drive vehicles. When out on game drives our window seat guarantee ensures no more than four guests per vehicle and individual use of a camera mount.
For the more adventurous, guided walks are also available while fishing enthusiasts will enjoy fishing for a variety of species such as tilapia and tigerfish. Shinde is situated on a private concession which allows guided walks, Mokoro excursions and night drives in addition to game drives and motorboat trips.
Shinde’s excellent location in the Okavango Delta ensures a combination of permanent water access for year-round water activities and large dry areas for game drive routes. This blend of environments provides the habitat for a consistently wide variety of wildlife, including the elusive sitatunga antelope and a healthy population of leopards. Fishing is available throughout the year (with exception of January and February), with excellent bream fishing from May to September and superb chances of landing tigerfish during September to mid-November.
