Sindabezi Island Lodge Sunset

Sindabezi is a private island paradise nestled in the waters of the Zambezi River, upstream from the Victoria Falls. It is a luxurious bush camp on its own little island, with superb views over the surrounding river and plenty of activities on offer! Sindabezi is an idyllic, exclusive camp on a private island and is part of the Tongabezi group. From here the Victoria Falls can comfortably be explored and guests have a wealth of experiences and activities to choose from during the day only to return to a tranquil haven at night. Sindabezi provides superb views over the flood plain and an opportunity to see wildlife in the surrounding national park.

The unique design of the five tented chalets allows close-up encounters with all the sights and sounds of the river and the creatures who live in and around it. From the south side of the island there is one chalet which has a wonderful view across the bubbling channels of the Zambezi River to the Victoria Falls National Park, where game such as elephant, impala and wildebeest come to quench their thirst on the banks of the river. At night guests can opt to enjoy the first round of sundowners in their large private bubble bath – with piping hot water courtesy of the state of the art solar heaters.

Sindabezi has only five open-sided thatched cottages facilities include a sun deck, outside heated shower, canopied bed and a “loo with a view.” All the chalets can be altered to have a twin or double bed and there is a delightful secluded honeymoon chalet on its own sandy beach. There is a stunning ‘Honeymoon’ chalet situated on a secluded sandy shore at the end of the island. The brand new, old fashioned claw-foot bath is perfect for two and solar panelling provides hot water and ambient bedside lighting. The entire Sindabezi Island is also romantically lit with traditional hurricane lamps and candles.

The five Sindabezi Island Chalets are perched on stilted wooden decks to allow full immersion into the sights and sounds of our evocative African setting. Conservation conscious travellers will be delighted to know that the Island is completely independent from the grid and comfort conscious guests will be overjoyed to know they will be pampered with piping hot water, gourmet meals, ice cold drinks and gorgeously romantic lighting. Imagine how magical Sindabezi Island would be if you are travelling with a small group. We have special rates for guests who wish to book the island exclusively. Many guests combine Sindabezi with a stay at our sister property Tongabezi Lodge, a short boat ride away.
