Isibindi Africa Lodges will open an exclusive new tented camp in the Zambezi National Park, 40km upstream from Victoria Falls and halfway between Victoria Falls and Kasane.
Tsowa Safari Island, which is 1.5km long and 400m wide and is split by a small river, will open on August 1. It can accommodate 12 guests in six luxury en-suite tents, each of which has a secluded view of the river where guests can watch the animals come to the water’s edge to drink.
The lounge and dining area is in the style of a Bedouin tent, with timber frames and an elevated wooden deck, with two infinity pools on site.
The previously uninhabited island is made up predominantly of riverine woodland and natural springs, and is ideal for wildlife photography. Activities include game drives and walks on the mainland of the park. Daily guided walks are offered, along with a sundowner cruise or canoe trip on the river.
Rates are fully inclusive of accommodation, meals, local drinks, game drives and walks, guided island walks, sundowner cruises, guided canoeing, one return trip to Victoria Falls, and laundry.
