Surrounded by the Zambezi National Park, the Sindabezi Island Camp is set on the shores of the Zambezi River near the Zambian side of Victoria Falls. Accessible by a short boat trip down the river, Sindabezi is the only bush camp in the region. The camp is comprised of five thatched chalets opening towards the river for great wildlife encounters and can accommodate a maximum of 10 guests, making it an ideal adventure destination for a private extended family vacation.
Perched on the sands at the river’s edge, the camp is rustic in style. Sindabezi boasts state-of-the-art solar paneling which compensates for the lack of electricity. Each cottage has its own outside heated shower, bedside lamps and flushing toilets with views to boot! AT night, the flickering candles and hurricane lamps only serve to enhance the traditional camp atmosphere, providing a romantic setting. AT dawn, private sundecks afford wondrous views of magnificent sunrises over the river’s flood plains. Gourmet outdoor dining or relaxing the lounge area with a cool drink assure an unforgettable experience as cavorting baboons and monkeys come into view and hippos wallow nearby.
A natural haven of serenity, Sindabezi is a place to experience the unique sights and sounds of the African Bush. Situated just across from one of Zimbabwe’s largest national parks, wildlife viewing abounds, with elephant, hippo, baboons, monkeys and many more types of game seen grazing on the nearby river banks.
Activities on and away from the camp include bird watching, canoe safaris, boating, rive and rainforest walks, fishing, guided museum tours and visits to local villages and Victoria Falls. Game drives and safaris abound in this region of numerous national parks and private game reserves. And with over 200 species of birds, this is a birdwatcher’s paradise.
Sindabezi Island camp is a year-round destination. The dry season stretches from May to November, with ideal game viewing from June to October. From December to March, during the wet season, the weather varies and short downpours are followed by bright sunshine. Vegetation is lush green and beautiful. By April, the Victoria Falls are at their most spectacular and bird watching is at its best at this time. The focus of activity at the camp varies based on the season.
Exclusivity is key to Sindabezi. This enchanting island is unique as it provides complete privacy in an intimate setting without forfeiting the adventures presented by the African Bush. Expert guides, private boat and vehicle are part and parcel of the private Sindabezi experience. With a qualified staff on hand to guarantee guests every need and comfort, Sindabezi provides a perfect family adventure vacation.
