Sindabezi: Our full report

Excellent (99%) From 15 reviews
All year

To really escape whilst you're near the Falls, consider a few nights at Sindabezi, Tongabezi's private island in the Zambezi.

Recently refurbished, Sindabezi's five beautiful en-suite thatched cottages are now set up on stilts, among the trees and reached by soft sand paths. All have an open front facing the river, a sundeck, a hot outdoor shower, canopied bed and loo with a view. Two are honeymoon chalets, which also have a bath.

Sindabezi offers all the activities available at the main Tongabezi Lodge, but with an added 20-minute scenic boat transfer to and from Sindabezi Island.

Sindabezi is often combined with it's sister-camp, Tongabezi, which stands on the banks of the Zambezi River – whilst families will make use of the nearby Tangala House.

Our view

Sindabezi manages to keep the high quality and exceptional service of Tongabezi despite its unique location in the middle of the Zambezi. It has a much more rustic and low key feel to it than Tongabezi, and with only five rooms its amazingly peaceful. If you are looking to relax in natural settings at the end of your safari, it would be tough to find a better spot.
