Overview of Toka Leya

Toka Leya is a secluded safari camp located 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 is 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 come here for the epic white-water 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 authentic pizzas are a real hit with the youngsters.

Each of the 12 tented have private outdoor bathtubs and drop-down sitting areas. Relax in the wellness area with a massage, Pilates or yoga or work up a sweat in the air-conditioned, fully-equipped fitness room.

      General 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 beautiful river 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. 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 health and beauty spa at Toka Leya, also situated on the banks of the Zambezi. You can enjoy Pilates, yoga or a soothing massage as the river meanders past. The air-conditioned gym has free weights, a treadmill and an exercise bike.
