"Tsowa" means ‘new beginnings’, which is what you will find on this pristine island in the middle of the mighty Zambezi River. A surreal place, the whispers of this majestic river are broken only by occasional calls of the African fish eagle. In a camp fringed by a beautiful forest, a soft path leads to a cluster of century old baobabs. This is our safari island Tsowa, sensitively situated within the Zambezi National Park.

The camp can only be accessed by
pre-booked transfers. Guests are transferred in closed air-conditioned vehicles to our private entrance to the Zambezi National Park, where they will be met by a guide and transferred in an open 4x4 vehicle to the river's edge. From here it is a quick boat trip across to the island.
This luxury modern day explorer's camp offers 6 luxury tents with en-suite indoor and outdoor showers. Each tent is carefully positioned in the shade of the forest to ensure guest privacy and maximize the river views.

The dry season Apr-Oct which is the best time for game viewing. The wet season Nov - Mar when the river is at its highest and the Victoria Falls are most spectacular and migrant birds are prolific. Sep-Oct is superb fishing season.
