Sindabezi Island

Situated in the middle of the Zambezi river around 18km upstream from the Victoria Falls, this tiny five room lodge is a truly delightful and peaceful place.

Sindabezi Island is a private island paradise nestled in the waters of the Zambezi, upstream from Victoria Falls.

Sindabezi is the only African bush camp in the area. Here, in a haven of natural tranquillity, you will truly experience the sights and sounds of the African bush. From Sindabezi, the flood plain of the mighty Zambezi and the views of the wildlife in the nearby National Park will capture your soul.

Your stay at Sindabezi Island begins with either a short boat ride or a guided canoe trip down the Zambezi River to the island. Along the way there are opportunities for game viewing as you pass close to the shores where animals wander to drink at the river’s edge. The main camp area is set on the sand and is the perfect place to relax and take in the peace and tranquillity of this tiny island.

Sindabezi Island is named after the River Shinde where it meets the Zambezi River right near the location of the island. Sleeping only 10 guests in five open fronted thatched chalets on wooden decks overlooking the river Sindabezi is also the most environmentally friendly island in the river – with zero grid dependence. Rooms are lit romantically with hurricane lamps, candles and starlight at night.

The island manager and team of staff will look after guest’s every need to ensure an unforgettable experience. Sindabezi can be combined with Tongabezi or as a standalone stay from where you can enjoy all activities on offer at Tongabezi. The island can also be booked as a private experience when travelling in a group or as a family.
