Accommodation Insight


At the end of the swimming pool a hidden path winds along the cliff face to a secluded Tree House.


Set against the basalt rock bed, amongst the branches of three riverine Ebony trees, this house spreads out over a sustainable pine deck that guarantees incredible views of the Zambezi River. 


The king size bed has a large, canopied mosquito net with air conditioning and the extensive space can also be used for private dining and lounging.


The bathroom's crowning glory is a perfectly positioned claw footed bath and from the Anatolian carpets to the Asian chests and West African artwork the Tree House invokes exotic day dreams. 

The front facade of the Tree House is completely open, making this house so much part of the surroundings that you can experience the beauty and majesty of Zambia without setting a foot outside.


Redefining life on the banks of the Zambezi River the River Cottages feature high ceilings, giant bespoke wood and glass windows and doors leading onto expansive sustainable pine decks.


The signature African fusion Tongabezi style has been distilled to the best of 'Made in Zambia' in both the interior and outdoor spaces.

We are famous for keeping the romance of travel alive and our Cottages were designed to provide a private haven where your every whim just happens to be attended to by your very own valet.

Sindabezi Island is unique - the discerning traveller's best kept secret. An idyllic, exclusive camp on a private isle on the Zambezi River, it is the only luxury bush camp from where Victoria Falls can comfortably be explored. Experience the large number of activities in the area during the day and return to a tranquil haven, a thousand light years away from the bustle at night. Fodor’s consider Sindabezi one of the top 10 eco lodges in Africa.

There are only five open-sided thatched Chalets on the entire island, allowing guests to soak up the sights and sounds of a pristine African bush setting. Views across the flood plains of the Zambezi and into the nearby National Park complete the experience.
