Siansowa Town of Zambia

Beautiful, rural & untouched - Siansowa, wild and untouched, forms part of the greater Gwembe Valley that stretches from Victoria Falls to below the Kariba Dam wall, an area still undeveloped and pristinely beautiful. Wildlife to be found in the area of Siansowa includes kudu, impala, puku, bushbuck, duiker, warthogs, ostrich and an abundance of resident birdlife. Looking for something exciting to do? Join a sunset cruise, or book for a dinner on a private island, explore all the surrounding islands' nooks and crannies by booking for a half day fishing trip, or take a tour of Zambia's largest commercial crocodile farm, located in the area. Take a walking safari on an island, or simply kick back, relax and enjoy the view from the shoreline.

Siansowa Town of Zambia

"an oasis at the end of the road" - Siansowa is deep in Tonga land, stretching right to the edge of the stunning Lake Kariba. Here you'll find an abundance of Zebra, Bushbuck, Kudu, Bush pig, Warthog, Ostrich and Impala roaming freely around the woodland and shorelines. The small islands dotted around the lake make for a real adventure and if you can camp out you may even have a chance to hang out with some of the elephant that frequent the area. Lake Kariba is sure to amaze all nature-lovers with its wild and untouched shores and beautiful sunsets.

Eagles Rest Resort - Eagles Rest Resort is situated on the shores of Lake Kariba, Zambia, near the sleepy little town of Siavonga, only two and a half hours drive from Lusaka and only 8km from the spectacular Kariba Dam Wall. Set in 4 hectares of some of Africa's most beautiful countryside, the resort is nestled in a secluded wooded area on the shores of the Lake with beach frontage and magnificent views across the Lake to the Matusodona Mountains. The Chalets are comfortable, fully mosquito proofed and air-conditioned. They offer Bed and Breakfast and Self Catering. All Chalets are equipped with a 2 plate cooker and charcoal braai, basic cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery. We have a shop at Reception where you can purchase foodstuffs such as meat, bread, milk, as well as a variety of canned and dry foods. Bar lunches and pre-prepared meals are available at the bar during lunch time and evenings. There is a swimming pool with shady patio to relax and enjoy a cool drink by the pool and a thatched bar on the beach where you can relax with a beer or two, supervise the kids and enjoy spectacular views across the Lake. They also have a camp site situated amongst the trees complete with hot and cold showers and toilets. Eagles Rest is also the home of the Houseboat Bateleur. Bateleur is a 20 metre pontoon houseboat superbly appointed and sleeps up to 12 passengers plus 4 crew members. The lower deck consists of 3 cabins (sleeping 6 - one double en-suite and two twin bedded), two public toilets/showers, lounge, kitchen, and a fully operational Jacuzzi with sun deck. The upper deck consists of a spacious lounge and the Captain's bar. Day seats convert to comfortable beds at night which are fully covered by mosquito nets (sleeping an additional 6 passengers). The Houseboat normally tows 2 tender boats for both fishing and sight seeing.

The wild side - Visting Lake Kariba is like taking a self-run safari, with a wide variety of wildlife in the area, including indigenous game fish like the Tigerfish, Hippo and Nile crocodiles.
