Toka Leya Camp in Zambia
Overlooking the mighty Zambezi River and some of its islands, under a shady canopy of jackalberry and waterberry trees lies Toka Leya Camp. The islands in front of camp are intriguing and part of the braided channel of the Zambezi with some rapids, a main channel and fringing dense vegetation.
Overlooking the Zambezi River and some of its islands is Toka Leya Camp, comprising 12 raised, spacious en-suite safari-style tents. Tent interiors boast tasteful African décor, climate-control, an indulgent outdoor bath, and an expansive wooden deck from which to soak up the views. Family units are positioned to offer quiet seclusion.
The camp’s dining and lounge areas offer ample space for relaxation. Meals are served on the sundeck, the pool deck and dining room all overlooking the Zambezi. There is a novel pizza oven and a curio shop. The spa rounds off the experience, making Toka Leya the ideal place for a leisurely couple of nights before or after a safari.
Activities include a tour of the Victoria Falls on the Zambian side, game drives within Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, river cruises, back-of-house tours, fishing and guided nature walks (subject to availability of a qualified walking guide and Zambia Wildlife Authority Scout; a nominal fee is charged). Tours of Livingstone town and museum and visits to Mkuni Market and a nearby village add cultural diversity. Other activities on offer in the area at additional charge include helicopter flights, microlighting, canoeing, jet boating, and white water rafting.
There are nine twin bedded standard tents. The double beds can be moved together to create a double bed. There are two twin bedded guide/pilot tents which are much smaller than the standard tents.
There are three family tents which can all accommodate four people.
