OVERVIEW ON SINDABEZI IN LIVINGSTONE – VICTORIA FALLS
Sindabezi is located on the private Sindabezi Island paradise nestled in the waters of the Zambezi, upstream of the Victoria Falls in Livingstone. Not only is it is the only African bush camp in the area, but the island is also the only bush camp that can be enjoyed exclusively as a private booking. Here, in the haven of natural tranquility, 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 during Safari holidays.
Your stay at Sindabezi Island begins with either a short boat ride or a guided canoe trip down the Zambezi to the island. Along the way there are lots of opportunities for game viewing, as clients pass close to the shores of Zimbabwe where many animals wander from the Zambezi National Park to water at the river’s edge. The main camp area is set on the sand and is the perfect place just to relax, unwind and simply enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this tiny island when on Safari holidays. Sindabezi Island staff are always on hand to guarantee your every comfort. At night, the main camp is transformed into a world of yesteryear, with the absence of electricity adding to the romance and charm of this magical island. Five star dining on the sand, under the canopy of stars, with the river meandering past and the unmistakable sounds of hippos wallowing nearby, assure an experience never to be forgotten.
Accommodation, Facilities & Amenities At Sindabezi
- Sindabezi Island sleeps only ten people, in five open fronted thatched chalets dotted around the shores of the island.
- The island is very rustic in style with no electricity, wood fires and hot bucket showers on demand. The unique design of the chalets allows you to encounter up close all the sights and sounds of the river and the creatures that live in and around it, including regular visits from Horace, Sindabezi Island’s resident hippo. At night, you will fall asleep in the glow of a hurricane lamp and be awoken by magnificent sunrises over the flood plains of the river.
- Sindabezi Island is ideal for a Honeymoon safari or for families or a small party looking for complete privacy and is particularly good value. Taking the island privately ensures a private guide, boat and vehicle. You can still do all your activities as at the main Tongabezi lodge, but with an added 20 minute scenic boat transfer to and from Sindabezi.
Dining At Sindabezi
- Meals are superbly prepared in a fusion of western and traditional Zambian tastes.
