Combining seclusion, breath-taking beauty, nature, and just a hint of adventure; Sindabezi Island is an exclusive camp situated on a private isle in the Zambezi River.
Often described as ‘the discerning traveller’s best kept secret’, Sindabezi Island is the kind of place that people dream of visiting. It’s unique setting, lush green surroundings and unparalleled views over the Zambezi floodplains; all contribute to making Sindabezi one of the most exclusive and romantic island destinations in Africa.
Recent guest, Hillary Gaertner, shares a little more about what the Sindabezi Island experience is all about. Let the safari dreaming begin:
“For a couple of years now, I have been dreaming of visiting Sindabezi Island. So much so, that this dreamy picture of one of their chalets has been my computer screen saver for months and months.
I recently got the opportunity to visit at the end of March and can confidently say this picture epitomises the island experience for me. The rooms are open-sided so you can soak up the views of the Zambezi River 24 hours of the day. I would voluntarily wake up before 6am just so I could witness the most beautiful sunrise I have ever laid my beady eyes on. One night, to my surprise, I woke up in the wee hours to go to the bathroom and witnessed the most abundant and brightest display of twinkling stars in the night sky. That morning when I didn’t think things could get any better, I got up to brush my teeth and a little bird flew into our room and landed on the side mirror next to where I was standing. At breakfast, I was enjoying the yummiest pineapple pancakes and that’s when I heard the grunts of the hippos. Fast forward to dinner in the treetops where I witnessed a beautiful lightning storm in the distance.
To me, Sindabezi is about the little moments that you just don’t experience in everyday life. The moments you almost can’t describe because they are so precious to you.”
