Islands of Siankaba

Islands of Siankaba Overview

Few accommodations in Victoria Falls offer a location quite like that of Islands of Siankaba. Built on two private islands in the Zambezi, this deluxe, seven-suite lodge is one of the most secluded and romantic on either side of the river. Honeymooners and privacy-seeking couples will simply love it.

You’ll arrive by boat, meeting your hosts at the jetty, and will be led to your tented chalet via bridges and raised walkways. Tucked away under sprawling shade trees, each chalet sits on stilts with the Zambezi flowing beneath it. A viewing deck affords private views of the river and the air rings with bird calls and the sound of distant hippos – it’s hard to imagine a more idyllic location.

An upstream location means you’ll have the advantage of being close enough to Victoria Falls to visit with ease but far away enough to enjoy a peaceful and extremely stay. This makes Islands of Siankaba perfect for winding down at the end of a Botswana safari. You’ll also find plenty to do: the lodge offers many inclusive activities ranging from tours of the falls and sunset cruises to guided nature walks and local village visits by mountain bike. Staff will be happy to arrange any other activities in the area, whether helicopter flights or white-water rafting.
