Whether you’re feeling laidback and lazy or active and adventurous, you set the pace of each day spent on Sindabezi Island. There is something indulgent in waking up knowing you have the whole day to yourself, without a set itinerary. The only thing we ask of our guests is to be back on the island by nightfall. You won’t want to miss the magic that settles over the island at night.
There is a lovely range of Zambezi activities to enjoy while staying on Sindabezi Island. You might like to start the morning on lazy sunrise boat cruise drifting down the Zambezi River and then end the day on our river sampan for a dinner quite unlike any other. And of course, the activity that steals the show, is your visit to the mighty Victoria Falls.
Explore all the options below.
All the activities at Tongabezi, our sister property, are open for our Sindabezi guests to enjoy.
Besides our wide range of safari activities and other adventures, we absolutely love to engage our clients in local experiences that make a positive difference in our communities.Get Involved
Kick back at the Sindabezi Sand Bar in the middle of the Zambezi with that special person (or people) in your life. In true pop-up style, the location of our sandbar in the changes depending on the time of the year as nearby islands appear and disappear. So you never know where on the river we might take you.
Dine in true Sindabezi style while anchored offshore in the Zambezi River on a floating platform. This is a breakfast or dinner experience quite unlike any other. Attended by waiters, each meal is paddled out one course at a time to your private sampan. For breakfast, we advise an early start before the real heat of the day settles in. The sampan dinner is the only activity that will return to the island after nightfall.
Let our guides pick you a shady spot on a sandy island nearby – Sindabezi is not the only magical island on the Zambezi for those that love feeling entirely isolated from civilisation. Good company needs equally marvellous food and drinks, and our picnic lunch or sundowners and snacks match the occasion.
Join one of our guides on a walk around the island with binoculars and a bird book to spot some of Sindabezi’s diverse birdlife. Or if you would prefer to range a little further afield, you can take your talking bird book (Captain Ronald, for example!) into one of the boats and float around the nearby islands to see what you can find.
Invite your guide or host to sit with you around the campfire if you’re keen to stargaze and hear tales of the African wilderness. Most of our team have been part of our family for 10 to 30 years, and have collected a lot of marvellous stories in that time. Be sure to ask about Horace the Hippo!
