The lodges are spread out along a series of coves and headlands, some several kilometres from one another and the 'town centre'. There's little reason to stay at one of the guesthouses in the town proper since there's no direct lake access.

West of Siavonga are a number of other accommodation options, providing solitude and a more personalised way to experience the lake. Take the turn-off to the west about 2km north of Siavonga.
