Sindabezi Island Camp


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

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 our 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 during Safari holidays.

Your stay at Sindabezi Island Camp begins with either a short boat ride or a guided canoe trip down the Zambezi. Along the way there are numerous opportunities for game viewing, as we pass close to the shores of the Zambezi National Park where many animals wander to find water at the river's edge.

The main camp area is set on the sand and is a perfect place to relax, unwind and simply enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this tiny isle. This area boasts two decks: the secluded mokoro deck is tucked away at the end of island; whilst the star gazing deck is a wonderful spot for dining and game watching. The new main dining area is set on an elevated deck up in the trees.

At night, the camp truly weaves its spell as you dine under a canopy of stars, with the river meandering past and the unmistakable sounds of hippos wallowing nearby: an experience never to be forgotten.

Sindabezi Island Camp now also boasts state-of-the-art solar panelling set amidst the thatch. This means that all chalets now enjoy hot water and bedside lighting, without forsaking our traditional camp atmosphere.

Sindabezi Island Camp 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. Guests 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.

Accommodation at Sindabezi Island Camp

Chalet One

Chalet One is the sole cottage on the Zimbabwe side of the island. It has a wonderful view across the bubbling channels of the Zambezi River to the Victoria Falls National Park, where game such as elephant, impala and wildebeest come to quench their thirst on the banks of the river.

Chalet Two & Three

Chalets Two and Three are tucked away on the northern banks of the river. They have heated showers, and distinctive 'loos with a view' set on a wooden walkway. Although the chalets are perfectly secluded, the island is also ideal for families or groups who would like to consider a private booking. Chalet Two and Three can both accommodate double or twin bookings.

Chalet Four

Chalet Four has a lovely view upstream and is perfect for spotting hippos wallowing in the river. At night time, a trail of hurricane lamps lights your way back to the chalet across the soft sand, where a luxurious, inviting canopied bed ensures a wonderful night's sleep as the Zambezi wends its way downstream to the Falls far below. Chalet four can be booked as a double or as a twin.

Honeymoon Chalet

Chalet Five is our 'Honeymoon' chalet and is situated on a secluded sandy shore of the island. The newly installed clawfoot bath is perfect for two. Thanks to our solar panelling, hot water and ambient bedside lighting is assured, The entire Sindabezi Island is also romantically lit with traditional hurricane lamps.
