Sindabezi Island

Sindabezi Island is an idyllic, exclusive camp on a privately owned isle in the middle of the Zambezi River and is the discerning traveller’s best kept secret!  

Sindabezi is a top eco lodge and has only five open-sided thatched cottages on wooden decks, allowing guests to soak up the sights and sounds of the African bush in the perfect, pristine setting.  Sindabezi has zero grid dependence, so rooms are romantically lit with hurricane lamps, candles and starlight.   Despite its remote island setting, the chalets are luxuriously comfortable with king size beds, white cotton linen, mosquito nets, plush carpets, en-suite bathrooms with vanity table, free-standing bath and shower, and a private deck from which to soak up the birds and wildlife.  The cottages have solar heated showers, and distinctive ‘loos with a view’ set along private wooden walkways.  The main camp is set on the sand, with comfortable seating, reading and dining areas and a raised deck in the trees for catching the afternoon breeze.  At night a trail of hurricane lamps lights your way back to the chalet across the soft sand.

Sindabezi is located some 17 kms upstream from Victoria Falls.  Access to the Falls is from the Zambian Side at Livingstone, a journey of about one hour.  There are views across the flood plains of the Zambezi and into the nearby National Park where game such as elephant, impala and wildebeest come to quench their thirst on the banks of the river.

Activities include river cruises, guided walks and fishing trips.
