overview

The Islands of Siankaba is situated on 2 private islands in the Zambezi River, between Victoria Falls and the renowned Chobe National Park. The 2 islands are linked by a suspension bridge leading to an overhead walkway in the tree canopy connecting the elevated chalets to the main lodge. This luxurious lodge sleeps just twelve guests.

This diverse region offers many activities: from serene sunset cruises and mokoro (dug-out canoe) trips, to cultural village walks and guided nature walks. Visit one of the Seven Wonders of the World - Victoria Falls – where you can participate in all the adrenaline-pumping activities on offer here, such as abseiling, bungee jumping, or an elephant back safari.

Traveller Reviews

  • The stay at the Islands was one of the best vacations of my life, it is the most relaxing place in the world and absolutely beautiful! They treated us like royalty the whole time we were there, the food was some of the best I have ever eaten. Having meals with the other guests on the island made for a great way to socialize and make friends, which we did.

  • Islands of Siankaba was truly outstanding! A great place to relax.

  • The Islands of Siankaba was very relaxing with the Zambezi River flowing right outside your balcony. Wonderful food and beverages and tours of the Victoria Falls.

    William Saunders, January 2012
  • Islands of Siankaba was absolutely wonderful. We have only just arrived home and will write more later. In the meantime I can only say that this has been a life changing experience for me.

    Elizabeth Rose, September 2011
  • This is a gem, a unique and magical experience. I absolutely loved the boat transfer - what a fabulous way to start your stay. The location is incredible!!! right on the zambezi with total privacy = the previous evening we were on a ferry from the zim side and we were almost jostling for sunset position with the many other ferries huddled together! The walkways give a truly robinson crusoe feel and they're such fun to negotiate! thank goodness I kept my drinks to a minimum ;-) the chalets are stunning - on stilts and with such generous decks. Another highlight was the Mokoro trip Humphrey took us on - being so close to the water, and with no motor your ear picks up the slightest of bird calls. We saw pigmy and Giant kingfisher, a hippo pod, a croc and many waterberry trees (which is what our chalet has been named after)

  • It was great with relatively little to do, once one had done Livingstone. In many respects that was the attraction, chilling out I mean.

"On arrival you're transferred by boat to the lodge, where all the rooms are on stilts with the mighty Zambezi River flowing below. A stay at this lodge will really bring the vastness of the Zambezi to life!"
