We stayed at Islands of Siankaba at the conclusion of a Country Walkers Safari to Zambia. It was a marvelous ending to a fantastic adventure. Eunice greeted us and guided us over the hanging bridges to a magical place. It is truly a picture perfect setting. Thank you for making us feel so special and sharing the Zambezi with us...

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.

I spent several wonderful days here in May.

My bathroom included tub and shower and two sinks. The towels large and thirsty and the toiletries exceptional. The food was delicious (breakfast,...
