Islands of Siankaba is located on the Zambezi River, about 35km from Livingstone town. Our friends Brett and Claire manage the lodge so I may be somewhat bias, however I think that the photos really do speak for themselves when I say that Islands of Siankaba is amazing!
|Welcome drink- Yum!!|
|The view from our table at lunch. Pretty nice hey?!|
The rooms are tented chalets, set on the banks of the river amongst the tree canopy and have a gorgeous view looking out.
|The chalets are right on the river in the tree canopy|
The bed was super comfy and I loved the shower and bath, especially after coming from Lusaka and our awesome bucket bath!
|...and very comfy too :-)|
|Nice bathroom with awesome bath|
The food is a highlight of the lodge. We arrived to a scrumptious platter of bream, quiche, garden salad and beetroot.
|Our lunch on arrival: Bream, quiche, salad and beetroot|
For dinner we had four courses, including a crocodile entrée which unfortunately I forgot to get a photo of, followed be a fresh sorbet (also missing a photo). We then moved to the main, a beef roast, although the highlight for me was the carrots which were so sweet.
|The lodge at night; unfortunately my photo doesn't really capture how pretty it looks|
|Main course: Roast beef|
However it was dessert that won the day for me! Isn’t the presentation cool?! That’s mocha ice-cream in the cup, btw!
|Dessert: Loving the presentation!|
Unfortunately we had only one night there as we needed to get back to Lusaka the following day, but still enough time to relax, read, have a few quiet drinks and enjoy the magnificent rooms and beautiful surroundings.

|Now that's what I'm talking about!|
|Mike shaving. I guess being at Siankaba was a special|
To finish this post up I’ll show a few more pictures of the lodge and its surrounds. Amazing job Brett and Claire, not a beat missed! Keep up the good work!
|And this is what we woke up to in the morning|
|The walk back to the main lodge in the morning|
|Looking out at the Zambezi River|
|A nice place to relax|
|Doesn't it look peaceful?|
|Breakfast table for two|
|I loved that we each got our own plunger of coffee, a very nice touch!|
|Breakfast starter: Muesli and yoghurt|
|Plenty of places to sit and read a book|
