We spent 3 nights in this small intimate camp. Our 'tent' was fabulous as well as private. You feel like you are part of the family with all staff and guests mingling as a combined small group, sharing meals, and experiences together. Our guide Kenny...More
Shinde was my first camp in the Delta, and it was the best of the three. It wasn't the most luxurious of the three, but the staff, game drives, and landscape combined to make it the most memorable. There is a real sense of teamwork...More

Definitely worth doing! I wore a good pair of walking shoes... didn't use hiking boots. The walk was about 3 hours in total but not strenuous. Some driving, some walking. We did ours in the morning and followed a male lion's 'fresh' tracks... very exciting! But you can choose whatever you want to do... it's not a requirement. As the other writer suggested, just speak with your guide. I was there in July - dry season and grasslands are not as high as in the wet season, as I understand, so it's easier to see what's around you. And you'll want to walk off all that food they are going to feed you!
