Location

Tsowa Island is situated in the Zambezi National Park, a 56 000 ha game reserve which is also a renowned birding hotspot of 400 different species and home to lion, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, sable and numerous antelope. Zambezi National Park stretches from the Victoria Falls approximately 50 km upstream.

Tsowa Island is 1.8 km long and 400m wide and is dissected by a small river where a pair of Pel’s Fishing Owls reside. The island, which has never been inhabited, is fringed by lush forests while the mainland is riverine woodland with natural spring lines which are hidden gems used by wildlife. This scenically beautiful area is popular for both landscape and wildlife photography. It is a particularly scenic game reserve for guided walking.
