Shinde Camp Reviews
“There was nothing there that was not 100 percent perfect. Loved every minute of the experience and was extremely appreciative of Africa Travel Resources for finding this lovely place for us. If the staff at Shinde reads this please know you provided the Ross family with one of the top 3 greatest experiences of their lives – and trust me we have had many great experiences.” – Beverly H
“We had a great time. The whole team was very welcoming. The room was beautiful with a lovely outlook to the grasslands. The treehouse setting for the main areas was very clever and we had some lovely meals with the team and other guests here, including one very nice meal in a separate part of the camp – with stars glistening above. Our guide, Aubrey, took us on some great adventures, including seeing leopards, baby elephants and most spectacularly, following wild dogs as they went on a hunt. We really enjoyed our stay and can totally recommend this camp to others.” – MJKTDA2015
