My wife and I spent two wonderful nights at Toka Leya as the first stop on our safari vacation. The camp is so beautiful and peaceful, sitting on the banks of the Mighty Zambezi river. The staff were incredible, and we got to do and see so many things - a walk with the white rhinos, game drives to see...

Toka Leya was our introduction to Africa, and what a great introduction it was. We were only there for two nights but wished it could have been longer. Where to start? The staff was fabulous - we arrived late afternoon, and by the next morning every staff member knew all of our first names and used them to greet us...

Great staff, great food, wonderful accommodations on the Zambezi River. Many photo options including a walk to see the white rhinos up close. Seeing Victoria Falls was amazing.... Having a Sundowner on the mighty Zambezi will be remembered for the rest of our life.

We spent four nights at Toka Leya with friends from Australia. The lodge exceeded all our expectations, with the most amazing staff ... special mentions for the Chef and our Guide. While the land based game viewing experience was average, the water based experience was exceptional. Our guide was unbelievably knowledgeable and assisted us in finding wonderful photographic opportunities. Highly...

My husband and our 23 year old daughter stayed for 3 nights at the end of November. We were on our way to Botswana for safari time, and wanted to explore the Livingstone area and Victoria Falls first.

Stayed for 2 nights in early Nov. Luxurious tents, all mod cons. Food was plentiful and delicious, they catered well with my veggie request. The staff were wonderful, they couldn't have been more helpful. The Zambezi river cruise was something I will never forget. The game experience was good too, seeing elephants, buffalo, hippo, kudu and giraffe. Would definitely return!!
