I spent three amazing nights in this stunning safari lodge in the middle of Mosi-oa-Tunya N.P. This lodge combines all the attributes that make for a perfect safari camp. 1) Location: It is close to Victoria Falls (the Zambian side), and Mosi-oa-Tunya is the only park in Zambia where one is guaranteed to see white rhinos, a well-guarded, but endangered species.
2) Excellent service and a well-trained staff that takes pride in anticipating their guests' needs. 3) Beautifully decorated and spacious tents that rival the best accommodations anywhere on the African continent. Very romantic! Perfect for a honeymoon, but also great for a solo traveler who enjoys moments of quiet reflection. 4) Great guides and activities on the Zambezi River. 5) Amazing food.
What else is there to add? Perhaps the word PERFECTION says it all. After going on our morning and afternoon game drives or visiting Livingstone, it was such a great pleasure to return to Toka Leya Camp, which felt like home away from home from day one. There were little touches that made my stay special, such as getting a surprise gift of Amarula, my favorite South African liqueur, as a night cap when I returned from dinner. It was accompanied by a jar of delicious, home-baked cookies. Hmmm!
It was wonderful to lounge in my beautiful sofa on my spacious porch facing the mighty Zambezi River every afternoon after a mouth watering lunch. I almost didn't want to leave my cabin sometimes because I felt so happy and peaceful in my wonderful surroundings. I just wish that I'd had an extra day to myself to use the pool and just soak in the ambiance without having to adhere to a group schedule.
I can unconditionally recommend Toka Leya Camp to anyone visiting Livingstone. You will be pampered beyond your wildest dreams and won't want to go back home for a while.
