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

We have just got back from 4 days at Siankaba for my Mum's 60th Birthday. We were 8 adults and 3 kids. I can honestly say we have never had a family holiday quite like it. The staff are truly amazing and every whim is catered to. From the early morning fishing trips on the beautiful Zambezi that surrounded our... More

We came here on our honeymoon and we could not have asked for a more romantic three days. We were met by Adam who took us over to the island.

This involved changing flights etc. All this was done without a hassle and is typical of how thing's are run here.
