Islands of Siankaba


The Islands of Siankaba is the perfect retreat for travellers wanting to visit the Victoria Falls yet also escape the crowds and enjoy being an area of natural beauty with quiet, unspoilt surroundings. Many of the staff working in the lodge come from the Siankaba Community and the lodge has earned a reputation for its warm hospitality. 

Each of Siankaba’s seven secluded chalets have been uniquely designed to maximize comfort and privacy whilst offering spectacular views of the Zambezi River. The unique feature of the lodge is the series of walkways and bridges that link the two islands together. The quirky design incorporates the use of natural materials that blend in with the feel of the surrounding bush while taking full advantage of the beauty of the riverine setting.
