A LEGENDARY RIVER, THE MEETING OF THREE COUNTRIES, THE ZAMBEZI NATIONAL PARK & THE ICONIC VIC FALLS
Tsowa Safari Island is surprisingly easy to reach - situated almost equidistant from 4 access areas: Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, Livingstone in Zambia, Kasane in Botswana and the Namibian border. This makes it an ideal point from which to start a once in a lifetime southern African safari, with easy airlinks to the world famous Kruger National Park in South Africa, and the glorious beaches of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site situated on the eastern seaboard of South Africa), and of course gorgeous Cape Town, voted as the most beautiful city in the world.
ZAMBEZI NATIONAL PARK
The road to Kazungula goes through the middle of the Zambezi National Park, dividing it into a northern riverine side and a southern “Chamabondavlei” side. Most of the park is within the eco region of Zambezian and Mopane woodlands, which is characterized by the rough-barked mopane tree, and consists of tropical and subtropical grasslands, savannas, and shrublands, including thorny acacia trees and huge baobab trees which can live as long as 1000 years!
A small portion in the south of the park is within the eco region of Zambezian Baikiaea woodlands, consisting of dry deciduous forest dominated by Baikiaea plurijuga (or African Teak) trees.
Many guests have written that one of the best parts of their experience at the Isibindi Africa Lodges was the process of getting there through pristine natural environments. Tsowa Safari Island is a scenic trip from any of the easy-access surrounding hubs. You will feel your stress melt off your shoulders as you drive through the surrounding national park to the river’s edge, where you will finally catch a boat to our island camp in the middle of the Zambezi River.
