Toka Leya Camp is hidden on the banks of the Zambezi River in the western sector of the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, about 12km upstream from Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

Overlooking the mighty Zambezi River and some of its islands, Toka Leya is situated under a shady canopy of jackalberry and waterberry trees lies. The islands in front of the camp are intriguing and part of the braided channel of the Zambezi with some rapids, a main channel and fringing dense vegetation.

Toka Leya Camp consists of 12 safari-style tents, each en-suite with a view of the magnificent Zambezi River and some of its islands. The camp's dining and bar area is set beneath a shaded canopy of trees overlooking the River and a swimming pool.

Activities at Toka Leya include a tour of the Victoria Falls on the Zambian side, game drives within Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, river cruises and guided nature walks. Other activities on offer in the area at an additional charge include sunset cruises, helicopter flights, micro-lighting, canoeing, jet boating, white water rafting and fishing.

Game drives into the Mosi-oa-Tunya Park are productive with an abundance of general game species like buffalo, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest and impala.

There is rich birdlife here too, including several sought-after species such as African Finfoot, Half-collared Kingfisher, African Skimmer (seasonal), Schalow's Turaco and Rock Pratincole (seasonal). For bird enthusiasts there are leisurely strolls from camp, boat cruises and island walks.

The Zambezi River offers ample fishing opportunities and tiger fishing is an unforgettable challenge for keen fishermen, particularly during the warmer months. There are several varieties of bream (Tilapia) that are also a good catch.
