We loved our time at Sindabezi. Our wonderful valet, Lawrence, saw to all of our needs and made sure we got the most out of the experience. We had great conversations with him and he helped us to appreciate the culture and lifestyle of the...More

My quest for travel is staying in accommodations that are off-the-beaten path and create lasting memories. Sindabezi is that experience if you are looking to break away from the bland (and so contrived) Victoria Falls hotel scene. It’s an island and, for us, our own...More

Dear AllisonCW, We are happy you had the chance to experience a lunch down on Sindabezi Island. We heard from Felix that the cruise itself resulted in some amazing wildlife sightings including a herd of elephant. The island does have a different feel to the...More

Sindabezi is part of the larger Tongabezi resort. But unlike the resort, Sindabezi is on a small island, with only solar for power, so most of the lighting at night is with torches and candles, though they DO have electric lights to use in the...More
