Sister lodge to nearby Tongabezi, Sindabezi offers adventurous, funky-styled accommodation at a good price. It is more like a bushcamp than a hotel.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Sindabezi Island Lodge sits on its own private island in the middle of the Zambezi, about 17 kilometres upstream from Victoria Falls. It takes approximately one hour to reach the Falls, as it is accessed from Livingstone on the Zambian side. Guests reach the lodge by a short boat ride down the Zambezi.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
Its five cottages are beautifully designed and all have open fronts looking on to the river. Although each room is slightly different, all have large four-poster beds, outside showers and no electricity. However, each of the two honeymoon chalets also has a bath.
A real favourite of ours in the area; however, you need a minimum of two nights to stay here due to its location, as it is not accessible from Victoria Falls where most of the area’s main activities are to be found. Nevertheless, river cruises, guided walks and fishing trips are to be had nearby and it is a perfect place to just relax.
