TINTSWALO AT Siankaba is set on two small islands in the mighty Zambezi River some 40kms upstream from the famous Victoria Falls.

Tintswalo at Siankaba is lovely property offering a quiet base from which to explore the Livingstone and Victoria Falls area. The five minute boat journey to the Islands opens up a world of peace and tranquillity, punctuated with only bird song and running water. The accommodation is private, spacious and very comfortable, and the service and food is very good, but you should not expect a totally five star experience. Tintswalo at Siankaba is better suited to guests wanting to combine a really good 4 star experience with friendly service, a stunning natural location, interesting activities and a little relaxation either before or after a safari.


Fourteen guests are accommodated in seven luxurious chalets (five are river facing), each positioned with its own view of the river. The chalets are situated on the smaller of two islands and are linked by walkways and a suspension bridge…
