We spent a stunning long weekend at the lodge. The staff were very friendly and efficient! The food was great and the views even better! The real gem are the people who seem to genuinly like entertaining the guests.

Bit of a cliche perhaps but this place has something unique about it. Its not so much a hotel stay as an experience. Getting to it via the boat ride on the Zambezi (boatmen are brilliant at their job), up the steps from the little dock to the hotel central area and from the central area to your suite/cabin via...

I am not sure if it was the serenity of the river's gentle flow, even at its lowest, or the soundtrack of the chirping birds but there is something about that place that would easily ignite a love affair with nature. The contrast of the conformable sheets and opening our eyes to green leafy surroundings proved too seductive for us....

We picked Siankaba to end a 1st visit to Zambia and it was perfect. Right in the Zambezi, close to the Falls, it was a secluded luxury hideaway. Full marks to Eunice and her team. Great food and wines. Unreserved endorsement from us.

If you are seeking a quiet experience for your trip to Victoria Falls, this is the place for you. Located about 45 minutes of Livingstone, this unique accommodation is located on two islands in the Zambezi River. After traveling west of Livingstone on a nicely paved road, you travel south down to the Zambezi River on a dirt road through...

One of the best lodges we've ever stayed in during our travels to southern Africa. Situated on two small islands in the Zambesii, the accomodation is reached via a 5 minute boat transfer from the mainland, giving you the chance to see hippos and birds en route. The rooms are large tents, up in the canopies of the trees overlooking...

Avoid the hubbub and routine of other resorts in or near Livingston/Victoria Falls and come to Siankaba. Refined, relaxing and very sophisticated. You won't be disappointed. My wife and I spent 4 fabulous days here taking sunset cruises every night, watching hippos and crocs, having a picnic lunch on a river island or just relaxing at dinner on the terrace...
