Wilderness Toka Leya Zambia Purpose


Toka Leya has a featherlight footprint on the environment. The airy and luxurious lounge, dining area, bar and pool deck, and 12 generous tented suites, are raised on wooden decks so as not to disturb the parade of wildlife. All offer wondrous views over the Zambezi River and the local hippos, crocs and elephants coming to drink. Three of the suites are family units with an extra bedroom.

Toka Leya’s impact

When we say we’re here for the wilderness, we mean it. That goes beyond giving you thrilling access to the Zambezi River, dramatic views of Victoria Falls, and intimate encounters with basking crocodiles or watchful hippos. This involves working hard to rehabilitate riverine woodland, developing pioneering energy-saving systems, recycling and upcycling.






Toka Leya experiences

Cruise along the legendary Zambezi, looking for hippos, crocs, elephants, and a dazzling array of birds. Follow your scout on a rhino walk, for a momentous encounter with this endangered species. Embrace local culture on a tour to nearby Livingstone, or to a village, school, or market. Marvel at the majesty of the Falls, the largest curtain of falling water on Earth.


Explore camps in Mosi-oa-Tunya

Toka Leya is situated in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, Zambia’s smallest park. With no large predators, it provides sanctuary to a variety of wildlife: notably Zambia’s only wild white rhino population. Toka Leya feels like a wildlife sanctuary in itself. Hippos come up to graze at night, while elephants are often seen padding silently through camp.
