Where to stay

Some of the wonderful places to stay that we frequently recommended.

Islands of Siankaba £££££

  • Zambia
  • Boutique

The Islands of Siankaba is comprised of two densely forested sand islands in the Zambezi River near the Siansimba Rapids. Located 40 kilometres upstream from the internationally renowned Victoria Falls and just 50 kilometres from the magnificent Chobe National Park, Siankaba is an incredibly picturesque destination. The camp is split between the two islands and linked by a suspension bridge and overhead walkway in the tree canopy. One is home to seven secluded chalets constructed from teak and custom-made canvas tenting – raised well above ground level in the tree canopy, they have private balconies that extend over the river. The other island houses a restaurant with a reputation for ‘haute-cuisine in the bush’.

Tongabezi is situated on a private estate on a sweeping bend of the Zambezi River, facing west and towards the sunset and the Victoria Falls National Park. The lodge has five cottages and six houses – The Tree House, The Dog House, The Bird House, Honeymoon House and The Nut House – all with spectacular views across the river. Tongabezi cottages are comfortably furnished and the houses are all unique in design. Both the cottages and houses have en-suite facilities with a shower and a ‘bath with a view’. The central lounge, bar and dining room are under thatch and there is a swimming pool which has been landscaped into the rock face. Activities are varied and include a tour into Livingstone town to visit the historical museum and other places of interest.
