Toka Leya is a safari lodge style accommodation near Victoria Falls on the Zambian side. The lodge is located on the water about 5 miles outside of Livingston. The location is quiet, which is relaxing relative to the rest of Livingston. Accommodation: The main tent area is directly on the water. There is a beautiful bar where you can have... More

Our party of 6 (3 generations) loved Toka Leya in Zambia near Victoria Falls. Stayed here in June 2013. It was far more exciting to do a safari camp in this area than to stay at a hotel in the town. We were able to do a river boat cruise on the Zambezi the evening we arrived, and we did... More

We booked two nights at Toka Leya through Africa Travel Resource (www.africatravelresources.com) - they booked us an amazing trip at 4 camps and Toka Leya was one of our favourites. The food was amazing and made to order. The staff were super friendly and knowledgeable. Their hostess was accommodating and made all our schedules for activities. The cabins were beautiful... More

Was there 2 nights last week in the family room beside the reception. Excellent room. Food a bit disappointing from previous lodges, only good. Game drive disappointing but river cruise was fascinating . Lots of hippo , crocodiles and birds. Histen an excellent guide. Strongly recommend helicopter ride over Vic falls . It's a bit pricey but well worth it.... More

Toka Leya is wonderful. Beautiful setting on the Zambezi river. Fabulous rooms with amazing view. Staff all very friendly and helpful. We saw all sorts of wildlife without even leaving the camp and the game drives were fantastic, including a walk with 4 white Rhino. We had the best time ever. Everything was perfect. Thank you Toka Leya.

Like all the places we stayed with the Wilderness Safari group, Toka Leya was nice. Everything was nice, people were nice, and the wildlife we saw was awesome. Our boat broke down and the camp manager herself came out to get us and give us a new boat. Also, this camp is near civilization and has more creature comforts than... More

We stayed at Toka Leya for 3 days, 2 nights in March 2014. Beautiful location, right on the river. We loved our room, although the air con stopped working after the first few hours - they were very helpful and moved us to a different room, which was great. We loved every meal! Missed seeing Moto Moto, the resident hippo,... More

I was traveling solo and stayed two nights, on the way from Kruger to the Okavango Delta. My goal was to see Victoria Falls; Toka Leya handled that very well. In addition, we were able to see a herd of white rhinos, which are under guard 24 hours a day in Zambia (there was a USD10 charge for this, but... More

Toka Leya Camp is an amazing experience. Victoria Falls is absolutely fabulous. Be sure and go when the river is high. The Zambezi River and Rhino walk are not t o be missed. The tents are nicer than most hotel rooms. A spacious deck overlooks the Zambezi. Wild animals wonder the camp at night including the local hippo Moto Moto.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set on the western sector of the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, Toka Leya Camp perches on the banks of the precipitating Zambezi River. Only 12km upstream from the world-renowned Victoria Falls, the camp is well placed for you to explore the scenic and vibrant region. Limiting our footprint on this pristine land, wooden walkways snake between the 12 spacious en-suite safari-style tents. You will feel safe and comfortable in your tastefully decorated room with an expansive wooden deck looking out at the mighty river - often presenting the sight of rambling elephants, grunting pods of hippo and idle crocodiles. Under a canopy of shady trees, the camp's dining, lounge and bar areas offer ample space for you to relax, complete with an infinity pool. Did you know? Toka Leya has a worm farm and indigenous nursery so as to rehabilitate the plant species of the area. The densely vegetated islands in front of camp form part of the braided channel of the Zambezi River. 'Mosi-oa-Tunya' is the local name for Victoria Falls, literally meaning 'the smoke that thunders' which accurately describes the rising spray that can be seen 30km away. Additional activities on offer include guided walks and adventure pursuits. The park offers wildlife viewing of buffalo, giraffe, zebra, impala and white rhino. The prolific bird life includes the African Finfoot, a rarity elsewhere, yet here a resident. ... more   less
