Tsowa Safari Island, located in the Zambezi National Park, is Isibindi Africa Lodges’ (Isibindi Africa) newest property. It opened on August 1 and offers guests the chance to appreciate one of the world’s last great wilderness areas.
Isibindi Africa Lodges’ Founder, Brett Gehren, says: “It’s a privilege to have been awarded the concession to develop a camp on Tsowa Safari Island. As with all our lodges, every care and consideration has been taken to ensure our six eco-sensitive luxury tents (12 beds) have minimal environmental impact and blend into the stunning natural surroundings. I feel that If David Livingstone had to walk through Tsowa Safari Island, he would feel right at home.”
The main camp with its stretch tents, features a lounge and dining area with open sides that overlook the Zambezi. The open areas are situated beneath massive Jackalberry trees where full advantage can be taken of two swimming pools by day and the sunken firepit by night. Guests can watch the river or view the abundant wildlife from every vantage point.
“While the island is remote, it’s surprisingly accessible and easy to get to,” says Gehren, “because it’s almost equidistant from Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, Livingstone in Zambia, Kasane in Botswana and the Namibian border.”
Tsowa Safari Island stands out compared with other properties within the Isibindi portfolio because of its exclusivity, privacy and intimacy. The six-tented camp is the only one on the island and only accessible by boat. Due to its size, the camp offers flexibility, where activities can be tailor-made to suit the individual needs and requests of all guests.
