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.

Standard Room

Stretching out to the east and west of Toka Leya’s main area are the camp's 12 en-suite safari-style tents, inter-connected by a web of wooden walkways.

Each air-conditioned tent features a sleeping and lounge area that leads out via large glass sliding doors onto a wrap-around balcony and an expansive drop-down sitting area - a wonderful place to unwind and watch the river slide by. Each en suite bathroom consists of double basins and both an indoor and outdoor shower. Every private deck also has a romantic outdoor bathtub; enjoy a soothing soak with an iced drink under the southern constellations...

Family Room

The three family tents at Toka Leya each feature two bedrooms: the main bedroom plus a smaller room with twin beds.


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.


Start your day at Toka Leya with tea or coffee delivered to your room before your morning activity. Breakfast is a generous buffet, which includes a full English cooked breakfast.

Lunch is à la carte with a variety of choices including Toka Leya’s fabulous pizzas, and a selection of sweet and savoury snacks are produced for the traditional afternoon tea before your afternoon game drive.

For dinner, join the other guests or dine privately in the elegant dining room or under the stars on one of the outside decks.

Toka Leya

David Brandt

"The stay at Toka Leya was a pleasant surprise because I had not expected so many up close animal experiences, nor such fine facilities and hospitality in Zambia."

Gerben Kuijper

"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."

Mark Britten-Jones
