This small island resort was absolutely fab. We reached it by car from Livingston and then small boat across the Zambezi to the Island. Staff were great (Malarone had made me sick and they sorted me out instanty), the water bungalows were fantastic, overhanging the Zambezi so that we could watch hippos popping up and down. Beautiful big bed draped with nets, clawfoot bath - the works! Just like Out of Africa! The hotel sponsors the village, Siankaba, on the Island and all the staff are villagers. We had a great tour of the village to see how they lived - they were very welcoming. Huts made of mud and straw and the children's nursery was held in an old shipping container. The food was fantastic, cooked by a great chef who could seemingly produce whatever you fancied at any time of day. The bar man was great too - he had the biggest tin of mozzie spray I have ever seen and made sure that (as Malarone had upset my tum) I was kept topped up at all times. As it was, neither of us got bitten once! We ate in the evenings with the Manager and other guests so it was great to learn about the other visitors, where they had been and where they were off to next.
