Zambia

Highlights

The fact that Sindabezi Island can be booked privately and that it is completely independent of the grid. We also love being the frame for all the joys and beauty that Zambia presents. And we love being pioneers of eco tourism along the Zambian shores of the Zambezi river.

Need to Know

The Sampan is very popular so guests should try to pre-book this whenever possible. If you would like to visit Livingstone Island please understand that it is subject to water levels being low enough to operate.


Wildlife HighlightsWildlife Highlights

Sindabezi may be visited by animals and we urge all guests to refrain from feeding any animals around the island. From time to time we also have hippos and elephants and the views across the channel comprise the National Park and you may spy various resident animals. The Mosi-Oa-Tunya Park can offer exceptional rhino, buffalo and elephant sightings - should you wish to see cats it is advisable to book a Chobe day trip to increase your chances. The lodge also has over 300 bird species.
