Relax at Shinde Island   Accommodation at Shinde Island

Location
Shinde Island is nestled on a lush palm island in the heart of the northern Okavango Delta. Located at the edge of a lagoon, it is surrounded by clear waterways which flow over yellow sands and past palm-fringed islands teeming with birdlife and game. This is a photographer's delight. It's remoteness has ensured that the innocent wildlife has not been subject to the pressures of mass tourism.

Attractions
The island is especially favored by members of the antelope family, including the elusive sitatunga whose elongated and splayed hooves enable it to walk on the unstable beds of reeds floating on the water. Our well-equipped delta craft may take you on an interesting trip where you will see fascinating breeding colonies of herons, egrets, pelicans and storks. Your guide will arrange walks, show you insects, as well as a wide variety of bird life and game. Shinde's abundant wildlife and the silent waters of the Okavango combine to make your stay a rare experience indeed!
