A Remote Safari Island Ideal for exclusive use getaway

LOCATION

"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.

AN AUTHENTIC SIMPLE YET ELEGANT MODERN DAY SAFARI CAMP

It is a great privilege and honour to have been awarded the concession to develop a camp on Tsowa Safari Island and for this reason every care and consideration has been taken to position the 6 eco-sensitive luxury tents to create minimal environmental impact and blend into the natural surroundings as much as possible while giving guests the chance to appreciate the trees, river, animals and birds of the Zambezi National Park.

ACCESS BY ROAD

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.

ACCOMMODATION

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.

SEASON HIGHLIGHTS

There are 3 distinct seasons in Zimbabwe.
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.

If you want a restoring escape then Tsowa is for you
