This place is amazing! I've been to the Okavango Delta 10 times, and this being my 11th was no disappointment. The staff, accommodations and ambiance were over the top at Shinde Lodge. A must for anyone going to the Delta in Botswana!!!

My wife and I stayed at Shinde Camp for 4 days/3 nights. It was amazing. We had never done a safari and Shinde really set a very high bar. The camp itself, which is located about a 5 minute drive from the airstrip, is beautiful. There are multiple common areas where you can relax. They are all open and shaded...

Two couples stayed at Shinde in early October and highly recommend it. The camp is well-furnished and nicely maintained. The tented cottages are conveniently located to the common area, but are each private. While the sides and roofs are tented, the floors, doors, and porches are of a beautiful wood. The rooms and baths are unusually large and decorated with...

We have been to many safari camps but Shinde like its sister camp Kanana is among the very best. The staff are amazing and cannot do enough for you. We stayed four nights (would suggest three as a minimum to enjoy to the full) and enjoyed every moment. Not just the nature experience but the fun amongst the absolute solitude....

We spent three nights at Shinde Camp in September. It really was the highlight of our trip, we just loved this place and highly recommend it. The tent was really nice and comfortable and the bathroom was very big. We saw several animals from our balcony, such as elephants, vervet monkeys and tssessebes. The common area is built amongst trees...

This is our fourth time and it's like a fine wine, it improves with age! Food has really improved and was always good but they have taken it to another level! We were there for the 50 years of independence from the British and they put on their own show, brilliant. Tents have been refitted and upgraded which was super...

Shinde is located in the Okavango Delta, which equates to lots of vegetation, and it is teeming with wildlife. Considering the camp's remote location, the "tent" was luxurious, and the lounge/dining area were terrific. Staff members were eager to please and succeeded in satisfying everyone's needs. Courtesy, respect, and professionalism are hallmarks of the manner in which staff members interact...

We visited 4 camps and lodges in our 3 week trip to Southern Africa. This was our second favorite camp. Guides,were wonderful and knowledgeable. Shinde has first rate food, lodging, bathrooms and associates. We were the only Americans staying during our time there. There is no air conditioning, I would not go there in their summer time.
