Islands of Siankaba

The Islands of Siankaba is comprised of two densely forested sand islands in the Zambezi River near the Siansimba Rapids. Located 24 miles upstream from the internationally renowned Victoria Falls and just 30 miles 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'.

Activities include guided birding and tree walks on the main island's nature trail, guided fishing trips, sunset river cruises or dugout canoe trips around the islands, as well as a variety of expeditions - to Victoria Falls, elephant back safaris, bungee jumping, white water rafting, microlighting, helicopter flights, gorge swing, tiger moth flights, game drives and jet boating.

Why we like The Islands of Siankaba

The unique location of the lodge, spread across two islands in the middle of the Zambezi makes the islands of Siankaba a truly special place to stay.
