TSOWA SAFARI ISLAND

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

"Tsowa" means ‘new beginnings’, which is exactly what you will find on this pristine island in the middle of Africa's mighty Zambezi River.  Introducing Tsowa Safari Island. 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. 

Tsowa Safari Island Tent 2.jpg

In the main camp, stretched canvas tents overlook the Zambezi River so that you may view wildlife from every part of the lodge. With timber frames and sides, set on wooden decks, the spacious open areas rest in the shade of massive jackalberry trees. The camp comprises a stylish lounge and dining area for 12 guests. The bar tent is adjacent to this main living area. The vast outside deck makes the most of its river-front setting, and is also in the cool forest. It has an open-air dining area flowing onto a sunken fire-pit which overlooks the river. The main lodge is linked to the pool which is in a sunny spot, from which you may enjoy your favourite cold drink while watching the river glide by.

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.

​The Victoria Falls is one of the most spectacular natural wonders of the world. A bucket-list experience for many an explorer, the sheer volume and breadth of thundering water will take your breath away. The local people call it "Mosi-oa-Tunya", ‘the smoke that thunders’. The misty spray of this mighty thundering spray can be seen by aircraft kilometres away and the thundering roar, when standing close to one of nature's majesties, will stay with you forever.

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.  The camp comprises a stylish lounge and dining area for 12 guests. The bar tent is adjacent to this main living area. The vast outside deck makes the most of its river-front setting, and is also in the cool forest. It has an open-air dining area flowing onto a sunken fire-pit which overlooks the river. The main lodge is linked to the pool which is in a sunny spot, from which you may enjoy your favourite cold drink while watching the river glide by.

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.

River Cruise

The river cruise is offered in the late afternoon to enjoy the spectacular sunsets along the Zambezi River. Guests can enjoy drinks and snacks with our guides on our comfortable river cruiser while keeping an eye out for game coming down to drink at the banks of the river.

Game drives

Game drives are offered through this scenically beautiful national park in the early mornings. The game drives are approximately 3 to 4 hours and include a refreshment stop. The Zambezi National Park is home to large herds of elephant, buffalo, lion, hyena, giraffe and numerous antelope species.

Flitestar Kosi Forest Lodge Walking Safa

Victoria Falls is one of the most incredible "must see" destinations in Africa.  Straddling the Zambezi Rivers, the Falls are "shared" between Zimbabwe and Zambia, linked by an iconic road and rail bridge.

Rapidly developing a reputation as the "Adventure Capital" of Africa, Victoria Falls warrants at least a 4 or 5 day stay to truly experience a sampling of the activities that it has on offer.  From white water rafting, gorge swinging, bungee jumping and jet boarting to more mundane pursuits such as canoeing, fishing, game drivings and a must-do sunset cruise on the mightly Zambezi River.

Victoria Falls is also a great add-on to a safari in Zimbabwe, Zambia or Botswana.
