“This was our first trip to Africa, and Shinde Enclave welcomed us and set a high baseline for what we could expect. Everything about our visit was perfect! The welcoming and helpful staff were always there to ensure all our needs were met. Management was always available and checking in with us. Food was fabulous and plentiful.” – stellaluna15
“This elegant camp more than deserves its 5-star rating. From wonderful, well trained staff, fabulous food, our beautiful newly renovated accommodation, and the astonishing tree house areas, we wished our two days were at least twice that. Bonolo, our guide, was simply amazing.” – Quayline
“This was the second camp of our trip. We started at Kanana and then came to Shinde Enclave. Again, we were not disappointed. The management team and staff were excellent. They ate with us during meal times. The bush dinner was AMAZING. We had a wonderful dinner under the stars with an amazing fire to sit around afterwards.” – talih9
