THe Siankaba lodge is a small and therefore intimate lodge located on an island in the Zambezi River. The rooms are private, very clean and the lodge is located about 40 minutes from the Victoria Falls. Staff warm and friendly and food excellent. If you are looking for a slightly different experience from the typical hotels found in Livingstone this...

We spent 3 nights/days here after arriving in Africa. It is serene, luxurious, beautiful with great staff, food and a super place for going to activities, i.e., walking with lion cubs, riding elephants, white water rafting on the Zambezi River, canoeing, nature walks, visiting schools and villages....all terrific. Was organized by Africa 2000 Tours who guided our whole trip here...

We may not have had the best weather but it didn't matter as the team of Sam,Adam,Kolo Humphrey all work extremely hard at making your stay there unique.

From the minute we were met at the airport and driven to the lodge, we were treated with the greatest consideration and kindness. Coming up to the main lodge on the boat from the river's edge was almost magical--we felt we were coming to a special place. Our room/"tent" with a porch over the Zambezi, reached by rope walkways, couldn't...

We arrived at Siankaba after a couple of hectic weeks on safari in Botswana. We had flown to Kasane airport from Savute and were transferred by bus to the banks of the Zambezi and taken across the river on a small motor boat before going through Immigration into Zambia. Depending on the time of year it is worth considering getting...

I cannot describe how wonderful this place is. From the moment you arrive (after 7kms down a bumpy track) you know you are somewhere special. A boat takes you around to a landing stage below the main lodge, and from there you reach your room via a series of rope bridges. Everything about The Islands of Siankaba is magical, and...

What a beautiful place to stay within easy 'commuting' distance of the falls. Ryan was great suggesting and organizing our 'extra curricular' activities. While we were in Livingstone visiting the falls our Bushtracks driver Mos took us to the tourist market in the center of town - what a brilliant place for buying inexpensive local gifts. Prices are negotiable. A...

What an amazing place! I am a frequent traveller and have seen a whole variety of accommodation and safari lodges in Africa, but the tranquility of Islands would be impossible to beat.
