I have a busy work schedule, I had two nights in Zambia where I wanted peace and quiet, I found heaven, within a few hours of getting there I so relaxed that I wanted to go and do some activities, I visited the village next to Islands of Siankaba, I fell in love with the life there, the people, the children, the culture. Everyon in the village lives in Mud Huts, no running water, no electricity and no toilets. Everyone that works at Islands of Siankaba lives in the nearby village as described above. Because the lodge is there the livlihoods of the people of the village has changed dramatically. I found out that the lodge and the guests have raised money to build a Nursery School with running water with toilets and with Solar Powered Electricity, Green! People who come to Islands of Siankaba not only get Heaven on Earth, peace and quiet to recharge the batteries but by coming to Islands of Siankaba the guests actually make a difference to lives of the villages both indirectly by giving them employment but they also can roll their sleeves up and directly make a difference by helping with the development projects run by a charity called The U Foundation.
The food in the middle of remote Africa was as good as any top class restaurant in London. The people at Siankaba were charming and attentive and caring, they wanted to go out of their way to help make my stay as peaceful and as special as possible. Only thing was I found myself wanting to help them! Business Executives head down to Islands of Siankaba, make difference to your life and a difference in their lives.
