Toka Leya is a perfect high-end choice at the falls, the luxury style tented accommodation fits in perfectly with a safari trip and reminds you of the surrounding nature in the national park. With just a small number of huge tents, it is hard to leave the comfort of your own room. With the incredible food and activities on offer, head out on to the Zambezi River and see either the beautiful falls or the wildlife on the river banks!
The main deck itself overlooks some of the rapids along the river and when the river is full it stands over the water it also houses the famous pizza oven! With a gorgeous infinity pool overlooking the Zambezi, it is the perfect spot to relax. Enjoy your stunning surroundings and cool off during the heat of the day with a cold drink.
“Just wow an incredible camp, each room has everything you can imagine from a sunken couch on your viewing deck, to the outside bathtub! The staff here are incredibly attentive and it’s difficult not to love them! The activities superseded my expectations and meeting the rhinos in the national park is simply something you can’t miss!”

From the minute our little tender boat picked us up and delivered us to the banks of Toka Leya Camp we knew we were in for a treat. After a sumptuous lunch listening to the grunts of the hippos up stream we headed out to view the wildlife coming down in the late afternoon sun from the arrival tender boat this time laden with gin and tonics, wine, and every other sundowner imaginable. Here we dined on African snacks, and drink in hand watched the sun sink beneath the horizon in the most spectacular display imaginable.
The staff is very helpful — eager to help. And they were very accommodating to our interests and schedule. Right on the river, we had 2 hippos strolling just below our terrace. The national park, where the lodge is situated, is not large, so if you’re expecting vast spaces full of herds of animals, this is not the place. That said, we saw many hippos (the Zambezi is full of them) elephants, giraffes, crocodiles and warthogs.
Our stay at Toka Leya was the highlight of our four weeks in Southern Africa. We were tired after a fabulous ten day safari through Botswana and Toka Leya hospitality was just what we needed. From the warm welcome we received on arrival to the fond farewell on our departure, we felt totally at home. The staff were all excellent and their service genuine and friendly.
