Toka Leya overlooks the mighty Zambezi River and some of its islands near Livingstone in Zambia home to the mighty Victoria Falls. The islands in front of camp form part of the braided channel of the Zambezi River with several rapids, a main channel and dense vegetation.
Accommodation at Toka Leya comprises twelve spacious en-suite safari-style tents, including two bedroom family units, connected by raised wooden walkways to the main guest area. The interiors of the tents are tasteful decorated in earthy colours and feature air conditioning to combat the heat of the Zambian summer, as well as large wooden decks from which to soak up the sight and sounds of the Zambezi River.
Toka Leya’s main guest area consists of a dining room, lounge and bar area offering a comfortable space in which to relax. Outside there is an infinity pool and a sundeck overlooking the Zambezi where guests can often see (or hear) pods of hippo whilst sipping sundowners or having dinner. The novel pizza oven is a great hit with our younger visitors! A curio shop offers a selection of local crafts.
Activities at Toka Leya Camp include a tour of the Victoria Falls on the Zambian side, game drives within Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, river cruises, fishing excursions and guided nature walks. Tours of Livingstone town and museum and visits to Mkuni Market and a local village are all outstanding ways of learning about the people and culture of this part of Zambia. Other activities on offer in the area at an additional charge include sunset cruises, helicopter flights, micro-lighting, canoeing, jet boating, and white water rafting.
The Zambezi River offers some fishing (catch and release) opportunities and tiger fishing is an unforgettable challenge for keen fishermen, particularly during the warmer months (October – December). There are several varieties of bream (Tilapia) which are a good catch.
