TSOWA SAFARI ISLAND

The eyes never forget what the heart has seen

EMBARK ON A ZAMBEZI ISLAND SAFARI OF A LIFETIME

For I have travelled the world looking for a place with a soul. In a world that is becoming increasingly disconnected we crave connection. The Zambezi River ties us as a mother to an umbilical curiosity. Tsowa, the satisfaction of nature falling into place.

ZAMBEZI NATIONAL PARK, UPSTREAM FROM THE VICTORIA FALLS

This is a surreal place, gently set apart from the busy world. The island is fringed by a beautiful forest, while a soft sand path leads inward to a cluster of century old baobabs. This is our safari island Tsowa. A pioneer inspired camp placed on the river, seeped in luxury and considered space.

Wake to the calls of the resident Pel’s Fishing Owl and the soundtrack of the crickets. Fall asleep to the calls of hyena and lions. We placed the camp on a site chosen for its magnificent forest canopy and enormous termite mound resting gently alongside the lounge. The golden green light pours through the trees and forest vines in the early morning and late afternoon. The fire pit deck is suspended over the Zambezi river and afternoons can be spent watching the reflection of the sunset over the Zambezi National Park as animals come down to drink.

JOURNEY WITH PURPOSE

Isibindi Africa is built on community-minded conservation, which means that the people, flora and fauna of a place, are an inherent part of the beauty and the sustainability of that place.

LOCATION

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.
