With the heat and humidity in Zambia, open plan, light and airy is the best way of making the most of your surroundings. The lodge is raised to make the most of the river setting and all the activity that takes place.
Activities in the Luangwa Valley are many. The Valley is most famous for being the original home to walking safaris. If this is a little too energetic for you, which it sometimes can be with the heat, safari vehicles are at hand to take you through this wild land in search of the Big Game that is out there. Depending on the season that you go, river trips are also available, and in the drier months the river makes for incredible game viewing as all the animals migrate to the only water source in this immense Valley.
It is time to make your way to the cool waters of the mighty Zambezi River. A charter flight lands you at Jeki Airstrip in the heart of the Lower Zambezi National Park. It is a one hour transfer to Sausage Tree Camp from the airstrip, but this is treated as a game drive so you don’t miss out on anything!
Sausage Tree is a chic camp set along the Zambezi River front. The Lower Zambezi National Park is still relatively unknown so you are guaranteed an exclusive safari experience at this award winning camp. Luxury, attention to detail, your own butler, spacious Bedouin style tents, open air bathrooms, pure white fabrics and flowing mosquito nets are at the heart of the romance of this special place.
Due to the camps amazing location on the banks of the Zambezi – game viewing takes place on land and from the water. Knowledgeable and experienced guides offer the highest quality game drives or boating safaris as well as walking safaris. Another unique activity to this area is the canoeing – led by a highly experienced guide you are able to explore the river, where game can be seen from a completely different perspective. If you are looking to flex those muscles than Tigerfishing is an option, best between the months of September – December, but fishing is available all year round.
Time to leave the romance of the Bushveld behind you and make your way by charter flight to the mighty Victoria Falls. Or as known locally – The Smoke that Thunders. This is something you can only truly appreciate once you have marveled at the spectacle.
Your guide will be waiting for you at the Airport and will transfer you to your forested retreat on an island in the middle of the Zambezi River. The Islands of Siankaba are not located at Victoria Falls but further down the Zambezi River, away from the usual tourist hubs. This adds to the intimacy of the location and your experience.
There are only 7 secluded chalets, each with a unique view of the Zambezi River. This is a 5 star retreat and the perfect way to enjoy the last 3 nights of your vacation.
Activities are varied, from relaxed sunset river cruises to the high adrenaline rush of being on one of the fastest flowing rivers in the world. Take in all the area has to offer or relax in your beautiful surroundings on the Islands of Siankaba
