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. We chose this "hotel" because we like the style it conveyed - a safari-like experience, not a post-colonial hotel. We were thrilled...

Dear Doug, Thank you for the beautiful review, delighted that we were able to help you complete your Big 5 sightings with the Rhino. Being located between Livingston and Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, makes for the perfect "transition" before being thrown back into civilisation and all the noise that comes with it :).

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!!

Perched on the banks of the Zambezi, Toka Leya is the perfect location to spend a well earned break. The menu is quite broad with a pizza oven to boot! Very few things can beat fresh baked pizza in the wild but then again this is Toka Leya. The setting allows you fantastic views of the Zambezi. Experienced guides and...

The staff at Toka leya was very flexible, accommodating, and seemed really caring about their guests. The chalets, and food were terrific. We had two sunset cruises with Donald and saw very different things each night.
