Sindabezi Island
Victoria Falls (Zambia)

Sindabezi Island is the little sister property to Tongabezi Lodge, located on a speck of an island in the middle of the Zambezi River, a few kilometres downstream from Tongabezi. It has five open-sided thatch-roof cottages opening out onto the river, each containing beautiful four-poster beds, private decks with hammocks, and bathrooms with copper sinks and piping hot water. The camp is reached by boat and run by solar-power, with no wifi or tv.

This place is all about the majesty of nature and it will transport you to another era of safari of civilised elegance in an off-the-grid setting and a wildly romantic atmosphere. Days are spent watching hippos float past, reading books in your hammock, taking fishing trips or enjoying private picnics on the Zambezi. Dinner is by candlelight and food is surprisingly gourmet, considering the setting. Sindabezi is a fantastic add-on for a couple of nights if staying at Tongabezi Lodge and there are special rates for this. Sindabezi can also be hired out exclusively for a small group.

Travel and change of place impart new vigor to the mind.

Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
