There is the choice of either a double or twin bed configuration on comfortable three-quarter, extra length or king-sized beds. Every possible comfort has been catered for – from full solar electricity, standing and ceiling fans through to yoga mats and hair dryers!
Families have the choice of being accommodated in a custom build two bedroom shared en-suite bathroom family tent sleeping a maximum of 5 people.
Situated in the Shinde Private Concession, the Shinde Enclave offers a choice of land and water based activities and is home to an abundant population of predators, notably the leopard. Activities include morning and afternoon game drives in open safari vehicles, with night drives being conducted after the evening meal. Alternatively climb aboard a Mokoro with a ‘poler’ and enjoy exploring the Okavango Delta’s tranquil waterways. Motorboat trips, walking and fishing are other optional activities, all to be planned and taken with your private professional guide.
Shinde Enclave is situated on a private concession which allows guided walks, Mokoro excursions and night drives in addition to game drives and motorboat trips. Shinde Enclave’s excellent location in the Okavango Delta ensures a combination of permanent water access for year-round water activities and large dry areas for game drive routes. This blend of environments provides the habitat for a consistently wide variety of wildlife, including the elusive sitatunga antelope and a healthy population of lion. Fishing is available throughout the year (with the exception of January and February), with excellent bream fishing from May to September and superb chances of landing tigerfish during September to mid-November.
This area offers an exclusive hideaway and perfect location from which a family or small group of friends can explore the Okavango Delta.
