Zambia Hotels

Sindabezi Island

  • Fodor's Choice

Pros

  • Lovely views of the national park on the Zimbabwean side from parts of the island
  • If you're lucky, elephants might swim across the Zambezi and graze a few meters from your bed
  • Service is top notch

Cons

  • It's very open, so if you are a bit nervous in the African bush, this might not suit you
  • There's no pool
  • It's difficult to get to

Fodor's Review

This is the most environmentally friendly property on the Zambezi. The island makes use of solar power for heating, all the gray water is recycled, and the chalets are constructed mainly from sustainable forests. The island has a strict 10-guest maximum and is separated only by a stretch of river from the Zambezi National Park. Each of the island's chalets is raised on a wooden deck built artistically around the existing trees, and they are all completely open to the river with spectacular private views (curtains drop down at night). Each guest can plan a completely private itinerary, and every need is anticipated. Two honeymoon chalets also have bath tubs. There's absolutely no electricity on the island, but it's barely noticeable. If your party takes Sindabezi exclusively, the guide, boat, and land vehicle are at your disposal. Dinner is served by lantern and candlelight on a sandbank or wooden deck under the stars.
