A luxury experience with a touch of historical charm - Shinde is an iconic camp, rebuilt paying homage to its former self.

Nestled on a lush palm island in the heart of the northern Okavango Delta, Shinde is an iconic camp, one of the first in Botswana and loved by many. The style of the new Shinde can be described as the best of nature within an authentic safari design - still with the understated warm and intimate Ker & Downey Botswana feel. Elegant, Classic, Opulent "out of Africa" - a worldly sophisticated safari experience.

Courtesy of its location Shinde can offer both water and land activities year-round. Shinde is situated on a private concession which allows guided walks, Mokoro excursions, fishing, and night drives in addition to game drives and motorboat trips. The blend of environments on Shinde's private concession provides the habitat for a consistently wide variety of wildlife, including the elusive sitatunga antelope and a healthy population of leopards.
