Located on a private island in the Zambezi River, Sindabezi is a small and exclusive camp that sleeps 10 people in five open-fronted thatched chalets dotted along the shore among the trees. The majestic river flows directly past the rooms, which are built on stilts just above the water, which gives life to hippos, crocodiles, elephants and an array of birdlife. This award-winning eco-lodge is solar powered, and adding further romance to the ambiance are hurricane lamps that provide the only source of light after dark. Sindabezi’s sister property, Tongabezi Lodge – a 20-minute boat trip away – offers activities that include trips to the Victoria Falls, boat cruises and canoeing and fishing.
Visit Africa’s favourite water feature, the Victoria Falls, and witness ‘the smoke that thunders’ from the Zambian side (for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, coincide your trip with full moon to experience an incredible lunar rainbow over the falls). Raise your adrenalin levels battling grade 4 and 5 rapids on an exhilarating white-water rafting trip down the mighty Zambezi. Try to land a feisty tiger fish or hit the quieter channels for some fly-fishing in breathtaking surroundings. Spot big game on a 4x4 game drive through the Victoria Falls National Park, which boasts a tropical rainforest growing in the spray of the falls. Clink glasses of bubbly with a loved one as the setting sun paints a dazzling picture on the Zambezi’s sparkling waters during an open-air boat cruise. Or simply stay put and enjoy personalised hospitality while soaking up marvellous river views or having a soothing massage treatment.
Sindabezi is suited to seasoned travellers looking for a barefoot-luxury wilderness experience that includes open-air bathrooms. Prioritising romance, privacy and seclusion, this solar-powered riverside camp offers a sanctuary from where eco-conscious guests can enjoy the best of the region from exclusive accommodation founded on exceptional service.
