Islands of Siankaba was our first lodge on our Zambia, Botswana, Cape Town adventure and it set the bar extremely high for the rest of the trip. This is a beautiful facility located in the middle of the Zambezi River. My husband and I opted for this location because it was not "right at" Victoria Falls and we are very... More

We spent 3 nights at the Islands of Siankaba and was very impressed by their facilities, the work ethic of the staff, food, etc. Only negative was the 20 minute ride from the highway to the lodge via a dirt road (?) that bounced us around like a pinball machine. The management then placed large pillows on the seat of... More

the overall atmosphere is very private and romantic, wonderful staff, beautiful island. the conbination of wildlife, bird watching during the sunset cruise on the Zambezi river makes the island very romantic. The polite and proffessional staff offer a friendly holiday altogether.

We spent 4 nights here in June. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty! Adam (the general manager) came right out to great us and give us the rundown on the lodge, food, etc. The entire staff is impeccable - Richard, Immanuel, Brighton, Adam, Bessie, Humphries, Mabin, and Lucky just to name a few became like family...

I have stayed at the Islands on two occasions, October, 2011 and May, 2012 and will return every chance I can. The setting is extraordinarily beautiful and the rooms quite luxurious. I often think about sitting on my bed, gazing out at the Zambezi River through the mesh front of my cottage/tent built into the trees on an island in... More

Truly amazing place to stay. This little slice of Heaven is beyond words. The staff, the location, the setting and the owners are all beyond 5-stars in every sense. This was my second trip here and this time I took my wife/children who loved it as much as I do. The level of detail they provide to make your stay... More

This resort lodge is actually on two small private islands, and you are conveyed over by the lodge's open boat, a ten minute ride. The individual cabanas are elevated, with their private decks overhanging the water. The cabanas themselves are large tents, with every convenience and lovely camp decor, including clawfoot tubs, complete with a bowl of floating candles and... More

This place is truly beyond imagination. I always used to think the Drakensbergs in South Africa were as close to nature as you can get, but you may wish to reconsider after seeing this gem -Islands of Siankaba. To think these luxurious lodges on basically stilts with the wild nature and beauty around you actually exist and not just what... More

What an amazing place! On the river Zambezi, so close to nature, and yet so comfortable and safe. Truly islands, a boat trip takes you out to the main hub of the resort, and then raised walkways and bridges go out to the lovely self contained lodges which have incredible views across the huge river setting and it's wildlife.

Livingstone in Zambia is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places we have ever visited. The magical Island of Siankaba is breathtaking and its hard to believe that such destinations exist. It felt as if we where transported to a magical world, Africa in its raw, untouched form so far removed from the bustling city life that I am used... More
