Chalet Four

ACCOMMODATION

All the buildings on the Island are constructed from local materials that are collected from the mainland and supplied by the local village community.

Chalet OneCHALETS

The four large chalets are built up on stilts with hardwood floors, walls are made from the river reeds/bamboo. Two of the chalets have double beds and two have twin beds. Each chalet sleeps two people, however we can arrange for extra single beds with bedding for families. The chalets have mesh windows, reed blinds, closing wooden doors and verandah with a view of the Zambezi River.

The beds are supplied with mosquito nets, sheets, pillows and duvets. (No towels)

Stilted fisherman's hutFISHERMAN'S HUTS

The four smaller stilted fisherman's huts are also built from local materials. They have a simple 'A' frame thatched roof but have no windows nor doors and are very open to the surrounding nature. These also have river views. Two have double beds and two have twin beds. There is not enough room for extra mattresses.

The beds are supplied with mattresses mosquito nets, sheets, pillows and duvets. (No towels)

CAMPING

The Island has a large campsite for guests wishing to bring their own tents. The sites are all secluded tuck-aways carved into the shady vegetation and connected by sand paths.

Jungle ShowersABLUTIONS

The reeded hot and cold showers and flush toilets are communal. They are placed towards the centre of the island, away from the river due to environmental factors. Often refered to 'As the best showers in Africa'!

LIGHTING

For lighting on the Island and in the bar we use candles. In the fisherman's huts and chalets there are solar lights. Please bring a torch/flashlight with you. We do not supply torches. This will help you negotiate the maze of paths after the sun has set and necessary for bedtime reading.

ELECTRICITY

We do have a small solar power system to charge up batteries for laptops, cameras, MP3 players, cell phones. There is minimal cell phone signal at a few 'network-spots' on the island. We ask guests not to use phones around the bar area, keep them on silent, Jungle Junction is a place to appreciate nature and forget about the modern world !
