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

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.

We arrived on the island after a very busy 17 days travelling around Zambia. It couldn't have been better as this is a super relaxing paradise!!! Solly and Eunice were wonderful hosts and looked after us very well. Food, wine and company was superb. Our luxury tent on stilts looking out onto the Zambezi was very special. We woke up... More

Thank you for this wonderful review and for all your great comments. It was unfortunate that your external fishing activity was not fruitful, but that this did not dampen your holiday experience. Solly, Eunice and the team look forward to your next visit. More

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....

My husband and I planned a two week safari in Zambia for our honeymoon. We went to south Luangwa, lower Zambezi and Livingstone, all of which was organized by Extraordinary Journeys. It was the most amazing trip of our lives! I would describe the Islands of Siankaba as Jungle Cruise meets Swiss Family Robinson (for those Disney fans out there).... More

You have all the ingredients of a delightful and relaxing holiday here on two tiny islands on the great Zambezi River. Seven tented cabins - six of which overlook the Zambezi and all of which enjoy good seclusion - with every mod con you can imagine, even fans & fridges, and a lovely central dining & relaxing area with plenty...

But they botched up our arrangements a couple of times which was very disappointing. Made the front end of our itinerary extremely frustrating. The food is wonderful. They have a manager who is new to the job and I believe will be an asset and eventually fix all problems.

Thank you for your lovely review, and our sincere apologies for the problems experienced with your activities. Having looked into the matter, there were a number of communication issues which could have been resolved better, and you may be assured that it was a singular occurrence and measures have been put into place to ensure that it does not recur.

We cannot rate this hotel highly enough for the location, style, comfort, and level of attentive service we received. The staff are incredibly friendly, helpful and did their utmost to make our stay as comfortable and trouble free as possible; nothing was too much trouble for them. There was always plenty of staff around to ask for help. We had... More

This was our last place to stop after three other lodges, all organised by Imagine Africa. We wanted some chill time and that is what we got. The rooms are a delight overlooking the fantastic Zambezi river. We were met by Solly and all the staff are very attentive and want your stay to be a memorable one. Humphrey organised... More

Definitely going to go back! Had a short visit recently and to be fair, I was very, very impressed. The rooms are done to a very high standard and couldn't be in a more picturesque setting, each room over looks the majestic Zambezi river.
