A magical place where one is treated with Zambian friendliness and every need is catered for. It is a winning combination of African charm and Western luxury. The food was delicious and presented in such a way that delighted the eye and teased the taste buds.The Sisters of Africa spa was a treat -where the massage was professional and caring... More

This is a belated review - my husband and I stayed for 4 glorious days 6 months ago. But the memories are fresh. Siankaba is an astonishing place - from the moment you step foot on the island through the various activities to the sad farewell - we never wanted to leave. The facilities (both common areas and rooms) are... More

This is a place where you get treated like a king and queen. The place and the view are simply breath taking. The drinks and wine are wonderful. The dinning is exciting especially the island lunch. The staff are so friendly and reliable. My wife and I will definitely go back for a holiday. They made our honeymoon unforgettable.

Our hotel, Islands of Siankaba, was wonderful, we were on an island on the river! So we were ok with the isolation at this location. Staff was friendly, food great, so fresh. Several things to do on the island and in the evening we would go out on the river in a pontoon boat and have drinks, appetizers and watch... More

Thank you for the lovely review and we are pleased that you enjoyed the islands and our lodge. It is unfortunate that you were not advised about the lack of water on the Zambian side at the time of the year that you visited. All our travel partners are certainly aware of the situation and we do normally chat with... More

A quiet stretch of water along the mighty Zambezi with the occasional "mokoro" fisherman paddling in out of the islands. Constant murmur of water churning the rapids creates a peaceful background for relaxing deep sleep. Great tentative staff who serve from the heart. Lively bird life through out the day with a variety of species for the nature lover.

One of the most romantic places that my husband has taken me for my birthday; from a private lunch which was organized on another little island, with a bottle of wine and a blanket to lie down if we wanted, to private dinners set up in different places which were lit up by candles showing the way to our table....
