Shinde Camp
The Okavango Delta

Shinde is perfectly situated in the heart of the magical waterways of Okavango Delta, just north of the Moremi Reserve and a scenic hop in a light aircraft from Maun. Sitting proudly on a palm island on the edge of Shinde Lagoon, everything about Shinde is fabulous; superb game-viewing, scrumptious food, first class accommodation under canvas, the lovely beaming staff and, to top it off, the beautiful backdrop of the magical waterways of the Okavango. Due to the mix of open grasslands, lagoons and waterways, the wildlife and birdlife is prolific and diverse. The topography allows for a wide range of safari activities including boating, game drives, bush walks and mekoro excursions which are available all year round.

The sitting and dining areas at Shinde has a thick canopy of trees sheltering polished teak platforms on separate levels, linked by staircases and ramps. The dining and sitting areas are elegantly furnished and enjoy terrific views over the Lagoon and grasslands beyond. A delightful pool area and viewing deck give a feeling of relaxed and timeless opulence.

The historical charm of Shinde is made up of eight classic safari guest tents incorporating a spacious bathroom with a large walk in shower. The large and airy bedroom is tastefully furnished providing a perfect retreat. Wide sliding doors lead onto a large front deck providing a perfect place to relax with G&T in hand.

For those looking for a more intimate and exclusive safari experience, Shinde Enclave comprises 3 tents and offers a ‘camp within a camp’. The luxury tents are within close-proximity of the private dining room and viewing deck. This hideaway offers guests the services of a private chef, waiter and housekeeper as well as their own professional guide and game drive vehicle. A super option for families or small groups.

For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move.

Client Testimonials

I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
