We visited Islands of Siankaba after 8 nights in 3 bush camps in Botswana. It was an oasis of comfort. Guests stay in large chalets with complete bathroom facilities, including a huge bathtub with gold-colored fittings. The large bed was very comfortable and was the only place we visited that had very fine netting over it to prevent bugs from getting to us while we slept, though bugs were not much of a problem in September. The view from the bed is of the Zambezi River and it is wonderful for lulling you to sleep as well as waking up with the sounds of nature. The patio out front is a great spot for reading or just relaxing. The food was absolutely wonderful and the service is excellent. The hotel offers a sundowner cruise on the river, landing eventually on a small island for cocktails before heading back for dinner. We stayed there two nights and on the first night the hotel manager provided very lively conversation at dinner. The second night's dinner was hosted by his assistant who was not quite the same at conversation. On our one full day there we took the tour of Victoria Falls, including a boat ride from the Royal Livingstone Hotel to Livingstone Island and had lunch at the edge of the falls, a great experience, but probably only available in the dry season. We would have liked to stay another day in order to see the white rhinos. There are many things to do in Livingstone so give yourself some time there.
