Classic safari blended with modern chic throughout. This lodge combines an authentic safari feel with a sophisticated elegance into a multi-tiered treehouse of the upper class kind.
The main area consists of the open elements of a typical treehouse amongst the ebony and mangosteen trees, then add canvas and the finest of finishes in décor and you've become the poshest Tarzan and Jane ever known.
With views out onto the grasslands, floodplains and waterways of the incredible Okavango Delta, Shinde offers a raw wildlife experience. A true Delta experience, with the added advantage of being in a private concession. Head into the bush, off the beaten track, wherever the wild may take you.
With only 8 classic safari tents on raised decks, you are guaranteed a unique and personal adventure with some of the best guides in the business. Intimate and remote from setting to the overall experience.
The tents are spacious and well thought out with all the added comforts. Did we mention the bathroom is almost half the size of the tent? It's huge with an incredible walk-in shower that will be welcomed after a long day out under the beating Botswana sun. Classic in style but with the added hints of lavish and luxury in all the finer details and don't forget the coffee or tea delivered in the morning, piping hot as the sun rises.
The swimming pool, out in the grass plain, open with an uninterrupted view of the bush and surrounds and in the distance the Okavango. Watch out for any animals passing by. There's little here, just you and refreshments. Bliss.
This camp offers both water and land based activities year round with permanent water access throughout the year.
Activities include motorboats, mokoro, game drives, night drives by spotlight, guided walks and fishing (with the exception of January and February).
The safari vehicles are specially designed and you are guaranteed a window seat, ensuring no more than 4 people per vehicle when out on game drives. If you're after the true Okavango Delta experience and a real safari adventure then you'll find it here, no less, led by expert guides.
