In the Eastern sector of Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park overlooking the mighty Zambezi River, under a shady canopy of jackalberry and waterberry trees is Toka Leya. The camp has twelve safari-style tents, each en suite, with a view of the Zambezi River and some of its islands. The camp's dining and bar area as well as the infinity edge pool are all set beneath a shaded canopy of trees overlooking the river. Activities include a tour of the Victoria Falls on the Zambian side, game drives within Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, river cruises, and guided nature walks. Other activities on offer in the area at an additional charge include sunset cruises, helicopter flights, micro-lighting, canoeing, jet boating, white water rafting, and fishing. Game drives into the Mosi-oa-Tunya Park are productive with an abundance of general game species like buffalo, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest and impala. There is rich birdlife here too, including several sought-after species such as African Finfoot, Half-collared Kingfisher, African Skimmer (seasonal), Schalow's Turaco and Rock Pratincole (seasonal). For bird enthusiasts there are leisurely strolls from camp, boat cruises, and island walks. The Zambezi River offers ample fishing opportunities and tiger fishing is an unforgettable challenge for keen fishermen, particularly during the warmer months. There are several varieties of bream (Tilapia) that are also a good catch. For the more sporting, try catching them on fly!
