Toka Leya Camp
Located in Zambia’s Victoria Falls lies Toka Leya, a safari-style lodge overlooking the mighty Zambezi River. It is the perfect combination of relaxation and adventure, and an ideal destination to start or end your African safari.
Twelve tasteful safari-style tents – including three family tents – each have an indulgent outdoor baths and expansive decks which serve up dramatic views and glimpses of wildlife. Wooden walkways snake between the units and the main area where the dining, bar and lounge area are complemented by an infinity pool, a sundeck for sumptuous meals and a convivial fire pit for night-time gatherings. The camp’s expansive main area has gorgeous views of the majestic river and its wildlife.
From the lodge, you have easy access to Victoria Falls, the most expansive curtain of water on earth and a World Heritage Site. There is also a range of adrenalin adventures on offer including white water rafting, bungee jumping, helicopter rides and jet boating, to name a few. View hippo, crocodile, elephant and numbers and varieties of birds on a serene sunrise or sunset cruise. And enjoy game drives in the surrounding Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park.
Why we like it here
Track the endangered rhino with the local wildlife scouts who monitor these animals 24 hours a day.
Catch-and-release fishing is available.
Take time for a therapeutic treatment at the spa.
The Olympus Photo Hub experience gives guests the opportunity to photograph wildlife and scenery using professional photographic equipment.
The lodge is very focused on energy-saving and eco-friendly initiatives which can be explained to you in a back-of-house tour, which culminates in the chance to participate in rehabilitation efforts by planting your own tree. What was once a degraded site has been rehabilitated to become a lush riverine woodland once more, thanks to the tree-planting project.
Cultural interaction is encouraged with the people and cultures of Zambia when you visit the town of Livingstone or a nearby village, school or market.
Things to be aware of
