Wilderness Toka Leya Camp

A luxury riverside safari camp in Zambia's Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park

Luxurious tented suites with views over the Zambezi River

In the eastern sector of the Mosi Oa Tunya National Park and about 12 kilometres from Victoria Falls, Wilderness Toka Leya gets immediate and fantastic views over the Zambezi River, and taking advantage of these are its twelve tented rooms.

Each comes with a large decking area at the front leading out from large glass sliding doors, behind which is your large stylish open plan lounge area and bedroom.

The camp’s main area is situated on a large decking area, and underneath a canopy of trees right beside the main channel of the Zambezi River. Perfect for atmospheric campfires on the bank and spotting the resident wildlife.

Here there is also a very spacious open-plan lounge and dining room, set beneath an enormous canvas roof and with open sides to maximise the views. The wall at the back of the living area is a really great feature; it’s made of “log tiles”, which gives the room a very natural feel.

Each tent has its very own solar panel, water geyser and batteries in keeping with the camp’s aim to lessen its environmental footprint.

The impact of your stay:

  • The Zambezi River, spanning over 2,500km, serves as a vital lifeline for Angola, Zambia, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, and Mozambique, supporting a diverse range of flora and fauna. Nestled on its banks, Wilderness Toka Leya is a temporary structure constructed on raised wooden decks to minimise disruption to the surrounding nature. Committed to conservation, the lodge actively works on rehabilitating riverine woodland and implements energy-saving, recycling, and upcycling processes to reduce environmental impact.
  • Toka Leya is part of the Wilderness portfolio, Jacada’s parent company and a purpose-driven enterprise focused on conservation projects across Africa. Your stay contributes to preserving and protecting over 2.3 million hectares of wilderness, with plans to expand to over 5 million hectares by 2030 in alignment with UN climate goals. In the Zambezi region alone, they currently conserve over 10,3230 hectares.
  • Through their non-profit, Children in the Wilderness, they’ve conducted environmental education and literacy programs in the Zambezi area. This includes offering scholarships, providing school equipment, supporting nutrition programs, and conducting teacher training and community development projects for young people.

Places to combine Wilderness Toka Leya with

Lower Zambezi

Time and Tide Chongwe River Camp
This camp sits in a stunning location, on the confluence of the main Zambezi and Chongwe Rivers, offering a rustic but comfortable option for those that want to experience Africa in a similar pioneering style as the courageous explorer Dr David Livingstone, 150 years ago. We recommend Chongwe Camp for travelers wanting to encounter one of Africa’s remotest areas, and the animals of the relatively undiscovered wilderness that is the Lower Zambezi. Chongwe River Camp is the sister to the Chongwe River House, and offers a more informal and adventurous experience that allows guests to get closer to Zambia’s wild and pristine tranquility. Each of the eight river facing tents is secluded in the shade of a large grove of old Winterthorn trees, ensuring the tents stay cool in the heat of the midday sun. The camp also gives you uninterrupted views of the river and the wildlife that comes there to drink or cool down. A range of guided activities can be tailored to meet specific interests to ensure your time here is truly memorable. Also part of the camp are the Chongwe suites which offer sublime luxury and service against a beautifully wild setting. Nestled under ancient winterthorn trees at the confluence of the Chongwe and Zambezi Rivers are the Cassia suite (one bedroom) and the Albida suite (two bedrooms). The suites are perfect for honeymooners or families and friends travelling together. Both have butler service, plunge pools overlooking the river and private dining options. Also included are private game viewing activities.
