Well, on an island in the Zambezi! What a wonderful place with gorgeous tented villas overlooking the Zambezi. The staff were wonderful, friendly, and always attentive. The boat trip on the Zambezi with sundowners on Elephant Island with weaver birds flying around was a super experience. Of course, we had a guided trip to Victoria Falls with Jonah, which was...

I doubt I can add anything to the positive reviews written previously except to say that staff here were uniformly kind and helpful. My biggest shout-out goes to Eunice, who arranged to have the choir from the village church sing to us. I had mentioned to Eunice in passing that I had really enjoyed the staff singing at another camp.... More

Beautiful setting on the Zambezi. Spent one sunset watching hippos from our boat and another following a large herd of elephant at their evening bath time. The visit to the village near the camp was also very interesting: the Head Man of the village was very welcoming. The worries about this year's harvest of maize are obviously a major concern...

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.

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.
