The Tsowa Safari Island in the stunningly beautiful Zambezi National Park of Zimbabwe lies about 50kms upstream of the mighty Victoria Falls. It is a modern-day, eco-friendly explorers camp exclusively for just twelve guests. The luxury timber-framed, stretched-canvas tents are built upon wooden platforms, designed to blend into the natural surroundings.
Tsowa, meaning 'new beginnings' is how you will feel whilst on this natural island located in the middle of the magnificent Zambezi River. Wake to the sound of the Fish Eagle soaring above the river and surrounding luscious forest. Walk to see the history of the century-old baobabs, witness the elephants parade past and the hippos wallowing the in the embankment of the river.
Chill-out in the sparkling pool, dine al-fresco as the sunsets creating a golden glow over the water, watch as the moon lights up the night sky and the twinkling stars are reflected by the warmth of the fire-pit that warms you.
Views of the wildlife surround you from every angle, relax in your camp under the shade of massive ancient Jackalberry trees. Have a drink beside the bar tent adjacent to the main living area on the vast outside decking watching the river flows past.
Enjoy the amazing sights of the Zambezi National Park game after boating across to the mainland where your safari 4x4 will be waiting to take you on a three to four-hour adventure, have the chance to see elephants, buffalo, lions, hyena, giraffe and a variety of antelopes. Stop along the route for refreshments and be ready to capture moments in your memory to last a lifetime. Island Walks, accompanied by a field guide, river safaris and days out to see the magnificent Victoria Falls can also be pre-arranged.
For the more adventurous, opt to take a three-hour trip rowing down the river in a two-people inflatable canoe accompanied by guides, enjoy lunch and drinks provided en-route upon the river bank. Then be transported back to the island in a game viewing vehicle.
