Shinde Camp, Okavango Delta Safari

Beneath canvas (and the shade of ebony and mangosteen trees), Shinde is a classic safari camp, with traditionally styled tents and plenty of modern refinements.

If you put Shinde on the itinerary for your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Botswana, you just might want to bring along a pith helmet. It wouldn’t feel out of place in this classic safari camp, with its tented rooms raised high on wooden platforms, its ancient mangosteen and ebony trees, its canvas-roofed lounge and natural materials. But look around your room and you’ll find no detail has been overlooked. A flashlight, for example, is ready to hand should you want to venture onto your private viewing deck in the middle of the night and try your hand at ‘lamping’ wildlife.

So, classic – yes, and with an old fashioned attention to detail. But Shinde also offers many totally up-to-the-minute comforts to accompany its phenomenal wildlife viewing and bird watching.
