You will be alone in the wild, enveloped by wildlife thrills while enjoying the opulence of contemporary design. Featuring Victoria Falls, South Luangwa, and Lower Zambezi, experience it all together...
Livingstone – Privacy and Decadence on the Riverbank
The roaring Zambezi River separates Sindabezi Island Lodge from the world. There are just five decadent, open-air thatched cottages on the island, each hidden away from one another, enveloped by the roar of the river and the playful antics of nearby hippos. In one sense, the lodge is the classic waterfront escape with endless views from the verandah, a gentle breeze fluttering the curtains, comfy chairs for lazing the day away. But this is Zambia, and the excitement of wildlife is never far away. Sometimes you will spot elephants and giraffe on the distant bank, and sometimes you will hear the bellowing yelps of a baboon troop.
After landing at Livingstone International Airport, it will be a one-hour transfer by road and boat to Sindabezi Island Lodge. Check in, settle in, and appreciate the remoteness of the lodge. In the dry season, it is not unusual for elephants to swim across the river and feed on the island’s vegetated sandbanks, inspiring images that prove that you are not alone, even if there are no other people in sight. You will have both indoor and outdoor en-suite bathrooms, with an outdoor shower that is beautiful when the moon is glowing. The spacious room opens out onto the river, keeping you intrigued as the animals come and go. There is also the main camp area with roaring evening fire and raised dining area. After your arrival, the rest of the day is at your leisure, and there is always a boat available for your first romantic cruise on the river.
