Toka Leya Camp

Operated by Wilderness this is a luxurious camp set within the boundaries of the Mosi oa Tunya National Park about 20 minutes drive from Livingstone Airport. There are 12 standard safari-style tents on raised wooden decks overlooking the river. The central area is beautifully designed with a small pool close by to the bar area. On a recent visit to the camp I found the menus to have been very well thought out and the quality of the food surpassed anything else I came across in the area.

The lodge has its own boats for river cruises and game-viewing vehicles for game-drives although the game in this National Park is only a side attraction for most guests who go elsewhere for the animals and come to Livingstone for the Falls and for the numerous activities available in the area.

As with all Wilderness Safari properties in Zambia it is hard to fault the professionalism of the operation, there is a spa on site and the company’s attempts to operate with a low carbon footprint are impressive, all the water is heated by solar, there is very well managed tree planting scheme in place and guests are offered an inspection of the waste water treatment plant and worm farm should they be interested.
