Toka Leya Camp
Toka Leya Camp is located on the banks of the Zambezi River, upstream from the Victoria Falls. The Twelve classic tented safari camps bring you close to nature while providing for modern amenities. The camp features a pool and romantic safari dining and lounge areas.
Spread out along the banks of the Zambezi River, the tents are set up on stilts, surrounded by a wooden deck that you can sit on and watch the world and the Zambezi River go by. The 12 well-appointed en-suite safari-style tents (three of which are family units that can sleep four) are remarkably spacious and join up to the main dining, bar, and pool area via a raised gangway, keeping you out of the way of visiting hippos and elephants.
Toka Leya is in the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, where a handful of Zambia’s remaining white rhino live. A game drive through the national park is a must.
There’s great fishing on the river and you can arrange for a guide to take you out on a fully-equipped boat so you can try your luck at landing a tiger fish.
Priding itself on its greenness, the camp has gained a reputation for having incorporated several eco-systems, including the replanting of indigenous trees, a grey-water set-up, and a thriving worm farm for composting.
At twice the height of Niagara, the falls are an awe-inspiring sight, plummeting 100m down into the Batoka Gorge. The falls are on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe, and are surrounded by lush rainforest. People also come here to take part in any number of adventure activities.
