overview

Toka Leya is a secluded safari camp located 12km upstream from Victoria Falls on the Zambian banks of the Zambezi River. Set within the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, this contemporary tented camp is shaded by a canopy of jackalberry and waterberry trees and features an expansive deck where you can relax and take in amazing river and island views.

There's plenty to do in the area: take a tour of Victoria Falls - the world wonder is only 20 minutes away - and go on a game drive in the Mosi-oa-Tunya Park. You can also watch the sunset while on a river cruise, go fishing or explore Livingstone town. This region is known as Africa's adventure capital and many people come here for the epic whitewater rafting or bungee jumping; more sedate activities include elephant-back safaris, scenic flights and bird watching trips. Ideal for families with children over six years old, Toka Leya has three family tents with two bedrooms each, and the camp's pizzas are a real hit with the youngsters.

Facilities

Toka Leya's main area is a series of inter-connected wooden decks built around enormous waterside trees.

Sheltered by a canvas roof but open-sided to maximise the views are the camp's various contemporary-styled sitting areas, the dining room and bar.

Next to the bar is a refreshing infinity pool, also with gorgeous views of the Zambezi River. After dinner, meander down to the fire pit on the riverbank to gaze up at the stars and listen to the sounds of the African night.

For a touch of pampering, try the small health and beauty spa at Toka Leya, also situated on the banks of the Zambezi.

Traveller Reviews

  • Toka Leya was very nice, everybody thrilled to get to the Falls, a spectacular experience as always. Very good guide. A morning boat trip on Zambezi before transfer could be arranged without problem.

  • The staff at Toka Leya were fabulous. They were all very kind and friendly and it was a really lovely place. The river sunset was wonderful.

"Due to its upstream location, this camp is a great option to escape the hustle & bustle of Livingstone, but still close enough to experience all the Falls has to offer."
