Wilderness Safaris - Toka Leya


Owned and operated by Wilderness Safaris, this camp has a superb location on the Zambezi River, 12km upstream from the Victoria Falls. Toka Leya is one of 3 camps located in the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, and with its raised walk-ways, game often walks through the camp area including elephant, buffalo, giraffe and various antelope, not to mention the amazing birdlife experienced. The camp offers a luxury experience, in a very environmentally friendly camp. A back of house tour with Histon or one of his team looking at the tree nursery, worm farm or sewage system is one of the highlights of staying at Toka Leya. 

Toka Leya offers the perfect combination of relaxation and adventure; ideal for the beginning or end of your African safari. Morning explorations of the river, the surrounding Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park or nearby Victoria Falls can be followed by a tranquil afternoon at the spa or practicing inspired yoga on the panoramic deck of the gym.

Toka Leya is open all year round.

Community involvement is vital in the greater Livingstone area and cultural visits to a nearby village ensure that the community benefits from tourism in the area. This is an authentic experience that takes place in a manner that is respectful to all parties. Guest donations have assisted with projects that focus particularly on assisting children via schooling, nutrition and income-generating activities.

The entire process of Toka Leya's successful tree-planting initiative takes place on site. The greenhouse and nursery grows the seedlings while their effective recycling projects help to feed the shrubs through an environmentally-friendly waste-water treatment plant and our kitchen’s composting worm farm. Surplus trees are donated for the rehabilitation of other sites within the Park or to NGOs such as GreenPOP to be planted in other areas that need regeneration.

Wilderness Safaris has partnered with Pack for a Purpose, a non-profit organisation that provides travellers with up-to-date information about required supplies for community-based projects. Guests who would like to bring along a contribution can view the needs list for Toka Leya’s community projects on the Pack for a Purpose website.
