Overview

Nestled amongst lush greenery in a private concession in the heart of the Okavango Delta, Shinde's almost treehouse-like structure sits elegantly on a pristine island surrounded by amazing animal and birdlife. Looking out over a permanent lagoon, the elevated main area boasts an expansive decked area and understated lounge and dining space. At the same time, just eight luxury tents promise a serene retreat for guests in the utmost comfort. Water and land-based activities reveal incredible wildlife in the Okavango's diverse habitats, exploring by mokoro, foot and on riveting game drives.

Climate

Botswana's dry season, from May to October, is considered the best time to visit with minimal rainfall and warm, sunny days. During this time, water levels in the Okavango Delta are at their highest making it easy to explore the network of waterways. November to April is the green season with wet, rainy weather. The landscape becomes lush and green and this is a good time for birdwatchers to visit, as a variety of migratory birds arrive into the region. However, the rain can make travelling around the country challenging and it may be harder to spot wildlife as animals disperse across wider areas due to the abundant food and water sources.
