Ker & Downey Botswana’s ethos is firmly rooted in the classic luxury of African Safari camps in the halcyon days of the early 20th century.

The elegance and historical charm of our iconic Shinde camp has been enhanced by enlarging the classic safari guest tents to incorporate a spacious bathroom with a large walk in shower and luxurious fittings. The larger bedroom with new linen and furniture in tasteful colours provide the perfect retreat. Wide sliding doors leading onto the extended front decks afford breath-taking views over the open floodplains or the mysterious waterways of the Delta.

The unique “tree house” main dining room, bar and lounges, while structurally unchanged, has had a complete furniture and fittings makeover, and we have increased the size of the fire-deck/bar.

Back of house is a new kitchen and laundry, and new staff accommodation has been built.

In essence, the Shinde refurbishment reflects our commitment to maintaining the highest standards of excellence and service, so we may afford our guests the highest quality wildlife safari experience.
