Shinde Enclave has all the trappings of a luxury lodge, yet accommodates a maximum of just six guests meaning it can be all yours for the ultimate wilderness safari experience. Think private chef, waiter, housekeeper and experienced guide, of course.
Raised on a teak deck on an island in the northern reaches of the Okavango Delta, each of Shinde Enclave's three spacious tents are complete with an en suite bathroom and balcony with sweeping views across Shinde Lagoon and the surrounding papyrus beds. Each tent is connected to the private dining area and viewing deck creating an exclusive and intimate hideaway for your group - and your private chef, waiter and housekeeper to attend to your needs.
In such a legendary destination it goes without saying that you'll be wowed by the stretching postcard landscapes and majestic animals but what's so special about this particular area is the array of water activities and aquatic species, including the elusive Sitatunga Antelope. So as well as your open 4x4 safari game drives you have the opportunity to climb aboard a mokoro with a 'poler' to guide you through the tranquil waterways. Return to your deck for a G&T as the ochre African sun melts into the horizon, to be replaced with a hearty traditional meal and the light of the Enclave's lanterns.
With just three luxurious tents, it's not hard to fill Shinde Enclave with a group of family or friends to share this once in a lifetime Okavango trip, with the most personal service you would wish for.
