Tintswalo at Siankaba has launched a special rate for those wanting a truly African experience on the mighty Zambezi River in Zambia. The rate of US$490 per person sharing per night is valid over the upcoming Christmas holiday period, and is all-inclusive of all meals and house drinks, as well as a range of activities. Guests staying three nights or more, will also enjoy a complimentary excursion to Victoria Falls with a stop at the local curio market.
Situated on two densely forested islands, the tented camp is ideally placed 38 km from Victoria Falls and 48 km from the Chobe National Park, providing convenient access to some of the region’s top tourist attractions. Livingstone is the closest airport, serviced by direct flights from Johannesburg and Cape Town, with Tintswalo at Siankaba providing complimentary airport transfers to the lodge.
Tintswalo at Siankaba evokes images of style and elegance in a truly African way, against a backdrop of natural forest. The camp accommodates 14 guests in seven suites raised above the ground in the tree canopy on the edge of the Zambezi River. All the tented suites have en-suite bathrooms, as well as private balconies that extend over the river, inviting guests to relax while viewing all that unfolds on the river and the riverbanks of neighbouring Zimbabwe.
It is a place of spectacular natural beauty and a haven for an astonishing variety of plant and birdlife. The tented suites are linked by a winding, raised walkway, keeping guests safe while protecting the fragile riverine environment below. An expansive deck with lounge and dining areas overlooks the bush and a swimming pool with poolside loungers.
At the lodge, guests may enjoy fishing and sunset cruises, as well as educational nature walks within the island forest to learn about the natural environment, including spectacular trees with medicinal properties. Other activities include a cultural tour and visit to the local communities, Mokoro boat trips, massage treatments, or exploring the bike trails around the lodge using locally produced bamboo frame bicycles. Optional excursions for the guests’ own account include guided game drives in safari vehicles within the Zambezi National Park on the Zimbabwean side of the river.
The lodge can be booked per room, or on an exclusive-use basis with itineraries tailor-made for a memorable, personal safari experience for families or groups of friends travelling together.
