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...

"Welcome to Fantasy Island" is really all I can say when remembering our arrival to this beautiful lodge. It's as if you were stepping into Robinson Caruso to steal another analogy. Just go. You won't regret it....as long as the season is right (stay away from Summer I'd think). Just go!

I stayed here in early 2012 with my two uncles and had an amazing time. I think the best part was falling asleep under my mosquito net and then being woken up in the middle of the night by monkeys pittpattering around on the roof of my hut. That, combined with the sound of the Zambezi rushing under my hut,...

Everyone should stay here at least once in their life. We had only 2 nights here - we could have stayed much longer. Everything was wonderful from the icy cold welcoming drink to the boat trip back to the mainland and everything in between - the boat trip to an island to watch the sunset and sundowners, the fantastic food,...

We stayed for only 2 nights and 3 days. I could have stayed much longer. It was such a peaceful experience, to be on an island in the Zambezi River, enjoying all that the lodge had to offer, including a sundowner boat ride. We had 2 rooms as my husband and I were travelling with our 22 year old daughter....

We only spent one night at the lodge and felt that was not enough. The location gave such a lovely and tranquil surrounding. Rooms were fantastic, it was lovely to hear the river at night time. The lodge is beautiful itself, I cannot explain but being there was amazing and one has to see a word cannot explain the beauty....

My friend and I stayed Islands of Siankaba for three nights in May 2013, on the recommendation of our travel agent, rather than stay at a hotel near the falls, This lodge that is literally on two islands in the Zambezi River. While an hour drive from the Falls, Siankaba offered a luxurious, quiet, intimate and relaxing stay away from...

An incredible locatiion. The whole experience embodied more of Africa than other stops on our trip; Victoria Falls, native village of Siamkaba, Zambezi River with its wildlife, and the unique cabin/tent lodging. The food and service were outstanding. This is certainly a necessary stop.

Foodies will love the menus at this amazing place. Loved the claw foot tub. Romantic and tranquil paradise, sunsets were amazing! Only negative is we didn't spend more than 2 nights!! Be sure to visit the village of Siankaba and the breathtaking Victoria Falls.

You arrive by boat on the islands that make up the lodge. There are only 7 partially tented chalets and most look towards the Zimbabwe side of the Zambezi. The atmosphere is very calm and relaxed and at night you can hear nothing except the river flowing, the grunting of hippos and birds calling. The chalets are on stilts and...
