Toka Leya was our first stop on our African safari, and the quality, service, and experience was unmatched for the remaining 2 weeks of our trip! The location, views, and amenities speak for themselves. The people and their incredible service was the best I've experienced anywhere in the world. They have thought of every detail, and execute all of them... More

We spent four days there after a longer trip through Botswana-getting used to a bit more civilisation again. The camp is a perfect balance between being close to town but still in the wilderness. The location on the river banks of the Sambesi makes it unique. The sunset cruise on the river turned into an unforgettable experience-we watched an elephant... More

This was the first stop on our honeymoon and we were not disappointed. The camp is outstanding, we were treated like royalty. You cannot fault anything about this camp, it is first class.

The location of Toka Leya is perfect on the banks of the Zambezi River. The facilities and decor are well designed and comfortable. The rooms (tents) are exceptional. The biggest and most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, air conditioning, his & her vanities, hot shower, and a bathtub with a million dollar view (hippos included). However, what we... More

We chose Toka Leya as the first stop on our (mainly) Botswanan safari trip in the full expectation that we wouldn't see quite as much wildlife there as in our later camps. After more than 24 hours travel from leaving home in the UK we were looking to relax for a couple of nights and recharge our batteries in anticipation... More

This was the best experience we had on our whole trip. The staff was knowledgeable and did everything possible plus, to assure we had a memorable visit.

Situated right on the Zambian side of the Zambezi we had a most memorable stay (as always) with the most friendly and professional staff of the Toka Leya Lodge. On our professional-guided Zambezi cruise we encountered close to 40 bird species. The city tour was a highlight, including the Livingstone Museum and city drive. The sundowner at the lodge overlooking... More

From the moment we were collected at the airport, the adventure started!
