If you are seeking a quiet experience for your trip to Victoria Falls, this is the place for you. Located about 45 minutes of Livingstone, this unique accommodation is located on two islands in the Zambezi River. After traveling west of Livingstone on a nicely paved road, you travel south down to the Zambezi River on a dirt road through...

One of the best lodges we've ever stayed in during our travels to southern Africa. Situated on two small islands in the Zambesii, the accomodation is reached via a 5 minute boat transfer from the mainland, giving you the chance to see hippos and birds en route. The rooms are large tents, up in the canopies of the trees overlooking...

Avoid the hubbub and routine of other resorts in or near Livingston/Victoria Falls and come to Siankaba. Refined, relaxing and very sophisticated. You won't be disappointed. My wife and I spent 4 fabulous days here taking sunset cruises every night, watching hippos and crocs, having a picnic lunch on a river island or just relaxing at dinner on the terrace...

We ended our 3 week safari (brilliantly organised by Expert Africa) at Islands of Siankaba in Zambia, from where we visited the Victoria Falls. This was the perfect place to relax and unwind after the excitement and regular game viewing of Botswana and we took full advantage of the facilities. We wondered where we were going as we drove down...

The Islands of Siankaba Resort is about 38km from Livingstone on the banks of the Zambezi. There are only 7 cabins meaning that it is always tranquil - the only noises coming from the birds, insects and, of course, the mighty Zambezi. The resort is in an idyllic setting, the cabins are extremely well furnished and equipped, while the very...

We stayed here for 3 nights, it was absolutely magical, staff were attentive and friendly, organised lots of local attractions, the location is spectacular on the river, there is nothing like waking up to the sun rise over the might Zambezi each morning and sun downers on the boat in the evening.I would highly recommend to everyone.
