The Shinde area of the Okavango is a wonderful area for a photographic safari. This region of the Okavango is on Moremi's north eastern side. The region has large areas of permanent swamp and many deep channels. There are lots of deep lagoons that are perfect for Mekoro trips.
The area around Shinde has quite a high concentration of wildlife, but the rest of the area is a bit too wet for big game.
The region has many Lechwe as this is the perfect habitat for them. This is also one of the best areas to try and see the elusive Sitatunga on your Okavango safari. The area has thickets of Acacia that attract Giraffe and large breeding herds of Elephants pass through in the dry season.
There are many Hippopotamus in the swamps and tranquil back lagoons. The chances are good that you will see Spotty Necked Otters.
There are not many predators in this region as they prefer to stick to the drier areas on the fringe of the Delta, but occasionally Lion and Hyena are seen.
At the camps in this area you can enjoy all the water activities in the Delta such as boating and Mekoro trips which are good for birding. These are often combined with walking trips on the islands.
The camps in this region offer game drives in drier areas where you will see more big game such as Buffalo, Wildebeest and Elephant. As this is a private concession night game drives are also allowed and you can see how active the animals are at night.
