My family had the pleasure of staying at Toka Leya for 3 nights in July so that we could visit Mosi-oa-Tunya (Victoria Falls) with our children. Richard, Solly, Caroline and the team were all incredibly welcoming and friendly – nothing was too much trouble. The choice and quality of the food was fantastic thanks to the very accomplished and friendly...

We stayed at beautiful Toka Leya for 3 nights - what a wonderful way to see Vic Falls and experience the mighty Zambezi! The lodge is located in the Mosi-oa-Tunya national park and it's close to the Falls yet removed from the touristy hustle of Livingstone. Our guide Godfrey was wonderful - so much energy, great with the kids, and...

Toka Leya was the last leg of our African journey before returning to the big city of Johannesburg and heading back to the US. We had been staying in other Wilderness Safaris camps in Botswana, far out in the bush. This was a good intermediate point for us. Not as remote as our other camps but not as blatantly touristy...

Thank you Librarylady57 for your beautiful and kind review, we are delighted to hear about all the adventures you had during your stay. We often suggest that guests use this camp as their “transition” stop before re-joining the real world, being close enough to town and civilisation and yet still immersed in the bush.

What a wonderful way to see the incredible Victoria Falls and the Zambezi River. The twelve guest rooms and all of the public areas are located along the river.

We chose Toka Leya because we wanted to be in Zambia in order to visit Victoria Falls. It is part of the Wilderness Safari group and we were not disappointed. All of the staff were lovely.
