My husband & I stayed at Shinde as our last camp on safari in Aug. 09 - can't believe I didn't review before now. We booked this camp through Kerr & Downey and were not disappointed. Our room was well appointed, quiet & private until an elephant showed up at our back door at 2 a.m. which was quite an adventure. The food was wonderful and we particularly enjoyed a surprise lunch under the trees at the end of one morning safari. Our guide Adam was simply the best - knowledgeable, friendly & fun. We saw lots of wildlife on morning, afternoon and night safaris and also enjoyed a walking and water trip. On our last night when we were the only travelers in camp and quite happy to make it a casual night, the staff arranged a candlelit dinner for us by the pool... really beyond our expectations! Wonderful adventure and we hope to go back to Shinde someday!
