Owned and operated by one of Africa’s finest safari companies, Wilderness Safaris, Toka Leya is very similar to many of the company’s Botswana safari camps and is just as efficiently run. However, if you are continuing on to one of the company’s safari camps, you might have a slight feeling of déjà vu, as they tend to be quite alike.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Toka Leya is situated within Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, approximately 20 minutes’ drive from Livingstone.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
It has one of the best locations of any camp in the area – the views are absolutely stunning. The main area is extremely spacious, with a large open lounge and a dining room. Outside, there is an infinity swimming pool, and a lovely decking area looks out over the river.
Wooden walkways link the main area to the 12 rooms. These are very comfortable safari-style tents, beautifully furnished and decorated in earth colours, and with large beds and good ensuite facilities. Each room has a private decking area where guests can relax and watch the mighty Zambezi flow by.
The lodge’s rate is fully inclusive of activities such as game drives in the park, a trip to Victoria Falls (on the Zambian side), river cruises, fishing excursions and nature walks. Helicopter flights are extra!
