This was my first visit to Islands of Siankaba. It was lovely and I will definitely be back. Rooms were clean and comfortable, with lovely views. Food and service were both great. I loved the fact that is was quiet and not much going on - unless you wanted there to be! It was a great place to chill out,... More

We stayed at the Islands of Siankaba for three nights last week and it was truly amazing. The location is spectacular, stunning and extremely peaceful. The staff were extremely friendly, warm and welcoming and really made our stay special. The food was very good and served in an amazing setting overlooking the Zambezi. The sundown cruise with drinks on Hippo... More

This property is like none other. We only had 2 nights there (used it as a base to explore Vic Falls) and I wish we could have stayed longer. If we had I would have spent some time on our amazing deck overlooking the Zambezi River; gone on the bike ride; visited the village! So much to do. But we... More

Literally located on a couple of Islands on the River Zambezi, Islands of Siankaba is an oasis of a Lodge. Situated approximately half an hours drive outside of Livingstone - it's readily accessible to Victoria Falls and Chobe National Park in Botswana and is definitely worth the drive to get there. I stayed there in April 2014 after a recommendation... More

My partner and I recently enjoyed a 3 night stay at Islands of Siankaba, which provides high standards of comfort and service and excellent cuisine. Our lodge was very comfortable and well-appointed but we would have appreciated some floor covering as evenings are cool in the winter months....either that or provide light washable slippers! We spent a day at Victoria... More

From their website and other TA reviews I was hoping that Siankaba would be an outstanding experience, and in most ways it was. Brilliant location and wonderful staff taking care of us, we were smothered with caring attention. Great meals, terrific spa, well appointed rooms and always the river in view. My only concern is that the timber and tented... More

I was fortunate to spend 3 nights at the Islands of Siankaba in early June 2014. How romantic a room with its views of the pod of hippos serenading you from the Zambezi River which was in full flow. The monkeys obviously enjoying the many photos being taken of them. The staff were exceptional, friendly, joyous and always smiling. The... More

We had a fabulous weekend at the Islands of Siankaba. The food was outstanding and the level of personal service was much appreciated. Nestled on a set of small islands in the mighty Zambezi river, this intimate lodge has just 7 beautifully appointed chalets. 6 of the 7 have gorgeous views of the river. Despite the relatively compact space, there... More

What sets Islands of Siankaba apart is not the magical location on the Zambezi with top quality hospitality and attention but the great enthusiasm and friendliness of all the staff and the fact that it is integrated into helping the local community. For a few days it is an idyllic escape
