ISLANDS OF SIANKABA /MFUWE LODGE & BUSHCAMPS
The Islands of Siankaba luxury lodge is located on two private islands in the middle of the mighty Zambezi River situated between the ‘Seventh Wonder of the Natural World’, the magnificent Victoria Falls, and the world famous Chobe National Park. This lodge has been developed as a luxurious retreat with outstanding cuisine and exceptional levels of personal service to exclusively sleep just fourteen guests. 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. The Islands of Siankaba is the perfect retreat for discerning travelers who wish to witness the wonderful Victoria Falls yet also escape the crowds and enjoy being in an area of natural beauty with quiet, unspoiled surroundings.
In-house activities offered by the camp include a trip to either the Zambian or Zimbabwean side of the Falls per stay and curio marketing shopping at top of the Falls, Sundowner cruises, Fishing (catch and release), Mokoro trips, Guided Nature Trail walk, Picnic Island Lunches, Cultural Tour of Local villages on foot or bamboo bike or a visit to a community nursery school.
Islands has a wonderful team of staff, most of whom are from the nearby village, and have been with the lodge from when it was first built.
