The facility is an almost fairytale-like setting on the Zambezi river with stilted luxury tents connected by suspended walkways. Everything - especially the food - is first class and done on an intimate but uncrowded scale. If you can resist just remaining on your private deck, at the small pool or on the tree-shaded deck, the river cruise and the... More

Felt at home as soon as we arrived. All the staff couldn't do enough to make us comfortable,always went back to the rooms to find it clean. The room was lovely,and we got the pleasure of a moonlit night over the Zambezi. There was also free wifi in the lounge. A special mention to Eunice who upgraded us to the... More

This place is a gem--excellent service, activities tailored to guests interests and desires. The staff, especially Humphrey, is accommodating and helpful and arranged a very complicated day of activities for us. The place is relaxing and has a beautiful view from the common areas and the every room. The rooms have some details that are out of place but they... More

We had 3 nights here at the start of our trip. It was aimed at being a place to relax prior to safari, with the added bonus of a trip to the falls. Rooms- ours was amazing, a wooden tented type room with an open wall facing out to the zambizi- I mean come on, what more do you want.... More

Thank you for all your great feedback. Sorry that you did not enjoy the market trip. There certainly are other markets that may have suited your needs. It is s pity that these other options were not discussed with you. Hopefully you will be able to return to the lodge in the not too distant future. More

This place has a very unique location with fantastic staff. I wont add much to the points already covered in other reviews but the massage I got after a very long journey was excellent.

LOVED the people! The staff were attentive and personable. Loved hearing the adventures of the other guests. There are only 7 chalets so we had suppers together as a group with the other guests.

This place is really so so lovely and so beautiful. The way you get to the main lodge and your own lodge is so unique and different from other places we have stayed.

We stayed a couple of nights at the lovely Islands of Siankaba at the end of our holiday in Botswana and Zambia. If only we had the time to stay a couple more nights, as it was the perfect relaxing end to the trip. Staying in the honeymoon suite, waking up to a Zambezi sunrise was a treat, as was... More

Words can not explain how fantastic this camps is. If you want to visit the Vic Falls than this is your place. The camp is very remote and gives a once in a lifetime feeling.
