We had a really nice visit here with a couple hiccups. Our guide, Bee, was great and the three managers were responsive to concerns. We had a good time with them over meals, which were very tasty. Generally, the food was like really good home-cooked meals and the staff that prepared them clearly worked hard on keeping the meals interesting... More

We spent 3 nights in Shinde. The guides were excellent, they knew the area very well. The wildlife is very good although we did see any lions but we saw one leopard. We had an amazing bush dinner in a perfect location to see the sun going down. The camp setting is amazing, the tents are very comfortable and spacious.

So great to hear you have a lovely time at Shinde and met one of our beautiful leopards. Thank you for your feedback on the double bed, we have taken note of this and for the 2015 season the camp will have either double extra king sized bed or two twin ¾ beds in each tent. This is part of... More

Shinde was the first of three camps we stayed at in Botswana, and it could not have been a better way to have been introduced to a great safari experience in an impressive country. Bee is a terrific guide - good sense of humor, and with an encyclopedic knowledge of the wildlife and plants but which he draws on only... More

We visited Shinde Camp for three days in June as a family of four (two adults and two adult kids of 19 and 21). Smooth transition from airstrip to camp took less than 10mins and upon arrival we were greeted by the camp director Jono who talked us through the organisation of the camp; meal times, game drive times and...

Thank you for your feedback and great to hear you had a good time at Shinde. We have attended to the vehicle issue and it is back up and running. With the rugged environment these things do happen from time to time – all part of the African Safari Adventure! More

Our visit to Shinde started with a bang: a large male leopard was at the edge of the airstrip as we were landing. Our party immediately agreed to a game drive; although we didn’t find him that time, we had multiple encounters with the leopard family during our 3-day visit. Also memorable was the welcome song for all incoming guests,... More

We stayed at Shinde for two nights in the middle of a three camp trip. It was by some distance the best camp we stayed at and we regretted only having two nights there. At this level you expect the basics to be good; accomodation, food, guiding. Shinde excels at all of these. Indeed does better at the nice touches....dessert... More

Met by a very warm welcome after a great scenic short flight to the camp. The staff were friendly, helpful and professional. The accommodation was clean and peaceful. We were on our Honeymoon and the staff went the extra mile and set up a quiet private dinner with sparkling wine to surprise us. The game drives were great and the... More

This was our fifth trip to Shinde and our 4th time with Bee as our guide. Bee is passionate about his work and enjoys sharing Shinde with you. We stayed 4 nights which gave us time to really enjoy the activities offered. Bee took us out twice in the boat in search of the elusive Sitatunga. And, we were successful... More

The airstrip is owned by the resort and is perfect. We have seen 2 Cheetah and Lion kills thanks to the guidance of Bee who is professional and passionate. This is the ultimate of SAFARI the management of the place is perfect and
