The scenically located luxury Toka Leya Camp in the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park allows guests to get up close and personal with African wildlife and nature. Entering the camp by boat, visitors are immediately immersed in their natural surroundings with the roar of the Zambezi River guiding their journey.
There are twelve raised spacious safari-style tents – of the beautiful, luxury kind – each en-suite bathrooms and new romantic outdoor baths and .a modified deck that includes a large drop-down sitting area that can be used for yoga or pilates. Enjoy views of the Zambezi and the sounds of wildlife. Under the shade of trees you’ll find the camp’s dining area, offering unsurpassed views of the river and delicious cuisine.
High tea, served on the deck, isn’t to be missed and the pizza’s are a hot favorite with children and adults alike. The swimming pool area means guest have a chance to either soak up the sun or cool off.
Visitors are bound to see game such as antelope, baboons, giraffe and zebra and will be chaperoned back to their tent in the evenings as elephants and hippos are regular callers to the camp. You’re sure to spot crocodile on the sunset cruise and if you’re lucky, you might even spot rhino on your game drive or walking safari around the park. In true African style, dedicated staff go out of their way to be helpful, caring and friendly with previous guests hailing their hospitality as ‘royal treatment’.
It’s not for nothing that this region is known as Africa’s “adventure capital” – activities such as bungee jumping, whitewater rafting, heli flips and elephant-back safari’s can be arranged and are close at hand.
