The Islands of Siankaba is the perfect island paradise situated a fair distance from the falls where you can relax in perfect tranquillity away from the crowds. Situated on two islands you will spot otters playing around the river banks, hippos munching on the grass below your raised chalet and elephants sometimes wander through! With incredible food, excellent hosts and of course some incredible activities on offer, it is perfect for those who want a slightly quieter lodge when visiting the smoke that thunders.
“This beautiful island paradise is the perfect tranquil place to relax when exploring the falls, from otters and hippos swimming around the island to the incredible rooms with huge bathtubs with a view over the river, amazing food and hilarious managers. I was treated like royalty here and can’t wait to go back! Crossing the swing bridge to get to my room on the second island was a really fun way of making the lodge seem so remote!”

Exceptional member of staff: Eunice, host: Probably my best lunch companion to date-hilarious and entertaining she is a shining star in the company. If you don’t have a dinner companion or want someone to bring some fun to the table ask for Eunice!

The Islands of Siankaba is a lovely tented facility on an Island in the Zambezi River. For us it was a welcome respite between visits to various Game Reserves. It was also a base to see the Victoria Falls, which they arranged to the Zimbabwe side along with other activities, all of which were included in the tariff.
Siankaba is serene and unique and you relax as soon as you board the boat for the islands. The cabins are spacious and secluded with the most stunning views of the Zambezi and luxurious features. We arrived exhausted after a hectic work week and left refreshed and relaxed. The staff were lovely, the massage great, the sunset cruises beautiful, and we enjoyed the communal dinners with the hosts and other guests. Would highly recommend!
This small boutique type Island hotel just has six or seven tents and their are suspension bridges to get around. You get to the hotel by boats and dug out canoes. It is just so quiet and peaceful. All the staff are very friendly and accommodating and the food is lovely. They all go out of your way to make it special for you. Having dinner is at a big table with all of the guest and a staff member, very nice. This hotel also supports the local school as well, they do great work. So beautiful and lovely you have to go.
