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 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.

We had a wonderful time at Sindabezi. We were originally only visiting the area to see the (magnificent) Victoria Falls, and had no idea we could stay in such a lovely place. Our room looked out over the wilderness (we saw elephants from our room)...More

Sindabezi offers the best of both worlds, great comfort but with the lovely twist of authenticity and wilderness on your doorstep. You know you are in Africa! It is a real treat to have the elephants come by to greet you and nothing is better...More

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

Sindabezi has secretly (not so secretly now!) been a long-term favorite for us. Did you know that our founder and director got married right on the island? So we are unbelievably glad that you appreciated just what a unique and memorable place it is -...More
