Sindabezi Island offers a secluded option for the discerning safari traveller, 20km from the attractions of Victoria Falls. Located midstream of the mighty Zambezi River, on the cloistered Sindabezi Island, the camp presents just 5 open-sided reed and thatch chalets, including an intimate honeymoon suite. Rated by Fodor’s as one of the top ten eco-lodges in Africa, Sindabezi provides the utmost African experience for people who search for truly unadulterated spaces, without compromising on enjoyment or comfort.
Sindabezi Island is totally off the grid, with ambient lighting and piping hot water provided by state-of-the-art solar installations; even the flush toilets are carefully managed by a custom wastewater recycling system.
Effective use is made of decorative hurricane lanterns and candlelight to create a restful, romantic atmosphere around the camp. All cooking is done on eco-friendly gas or over fires created from sustainable wood sources. The cleaning products and soaps used at Sindabezi are biodegradable, allowing wastewater to be re-introduced into the environment.
Accommodation is scattered in private locations across the island, with glorious views over the ever-changing Zambezi, and the Victoria Falls National Park. The chalets all feature double or twin beds according to your preference, and deep baths or refreshing showers. The honeymoon suite has a king-size bed and a claw-foot bath with a view of the river.
Lamp-lined paths lead you to a central deck area and fire pit for socialising. Top local chefs use fresh ingredients from neighbouring Tongebezi Lodge’s organic garden, to produce meals which showcase African cuisine at its best. Alternatively you can opt for a romantic dining experience on the sampan which floats restfully out on the river, or on a private dining deck. A packed meal accompanies guests that set out on the many adventures in the area.
Opportunities for exploration abound with game drives into the National Park, guided boat and canoe trips, tiger fishing, hiking below the falls, white-water rafting, fly-fishing, shopping at local craft stalls, and visits to the school and village which are supported by Sindabezi and Tongabezi.
Alternatively you can remain in camp and relax with a massage or simply gaze out over the river, watching birds, hippos wallowing in the waters, or elephant, impala and wildebeest quenching their thirst on the adjacent shores.
