We stayed here on the recommendation of our travel agent. We told him we were looking for a quiet place to chill as a family and didn’t want a “busy” hotel. I was a bit surprised at the high price tag. It was in the...More

For two New Yorkers looking to get out of the city and have a romantic, and authentic, and a bit off-the-beaten-path honeymoon, Sindabezi was truly perfect for us. We originally booked two nights at Tongabezi and one at Sindabezi, but switched to spend our last...More

What a location ! After travelling on the Zambezi for 15 minutes from Tongabezi, you arrive at Sindabezi. It really is a small island in the middle of the Zambezi. Dinner by the moon, stars and candle light is wonderful, and the food matches the...More

Sindabezi Island is unique - the discerning traveller's best kept secret. An idyllic, exclusive camp on our very own private isle on the Zambezi River, it is the only luxury bush camp from where ...More Victoria Falls can comfortably be explored. Experience the large number of activities in the area during the day and return to a tranquil haven, a thousand light years away from the bustle at night. Fodor’s consider Sindabezi one of the top 10 eco lodges in Africa. There are only five open-sided thatched Chalets on the entire island, allowing guests to soak up the sights and sounds of a pristine African bush setting. Views across the flood plains of the Zambezi and into the nearby National Park complete the experience. Less
