Featured Safari Destination by GURU
Overlooking the Zambezi River and some of its islands, Toka Leya is the perfect place to relax before or after a safari. An ideal combination of relaxation and adventure, this safari-style lodge on the banks of the Zambezi, provides easy access to Victoria Falls and her surrounding landmarks in romantic settings, as well as the sports adventurers and adrenalin communities.
A World Heritage Site, Victoria Falls straddles the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia and is the most expansive curtain of water in the world. View its roaring waters, spectacular spray and a small rainforest that clings to the Falls’ edge, with a variety of mammals and birds. (A tour on the Zambian side is included in your stay; the view from the Zimbabwean side is at extra cost.)
The camp’s expansive main area has gorgeous views of the majestic river and its wildlife, even from the rim-flow pool, which puts you eye level with some of the larger visitors. Twelve tasteful safari-style tents; including three family tents, each have an indulgent outdoor bath and a large wooden deck.
Game drives and river cruises can be followed by treatments at the spa, or workouts on the gym equipment provided; tours of Victoria Falls, a nearby rural village and Livingstone town add cultural and historical diversity. Fishing, rhino tracking and plenty of adrenaline-filled activities add excitement to the experience.
Game drives into Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park offer sightings of general game species such as elephant, buffalo, giraffe and white rhino. There is also rich birdlife, including sought-after species such as half-collared kingfisher and Schalow’s turaco.
Cultural visits to one of the nearby villages are respectful and insightful ways of learning about and interacting with the people and culture of this part of Zambia. The visit includes seeing one of the schools, a homestead and the village store. Guest donations have assisted with projects that focus on schooling and income-generating activities, ensuring that the community benefits from tourism in the area.
Purpose: Thanks to the tree-planting project, this formerly degraded site has been rehabilitated to become a lush riverine woodland once more.

A mere 45-minute flight from Nairobi will find you in the midst of the Masai Mara at Ngare Serian; an intimate little camp: set along the banks of the Mara River, where the sounds of rushing water are punctuated only by languorous laughing hippo and animals visiting to drink.
It lies in the private Mara North Conservancy, and the beauty of this location is that only 10 other camps have access to it – so the feeling of having your own personal piece of Africa is a luxury that we have in spades.
Bisate Lodge, adjacent to Volcanoes National Park, combines the bucket-list gorilla trek with a pioneering vision of reforestation and community partnership. Bisate is located in the natural amphitheatre of an eroded volcanic cone, with dramatic views of the peaks of the Bisoke and Karisimbi volcanoes rearing up through Afro-alpine forests.
Encountering one of the gorilla groups in the nearby Volcanoes National Park is a unique experience.
Luxurious Vumbura Plains lies in an area that is a mix of water and dry land. The wildlife is diverse, so that both land and water activities on vehicles, mekoro and boats deliver an all-round African safari experience.
Vumbura Plains comprises two satellite camps, each with its own main area with an expansive vista across the floodplains.
Guests will be able to enjoy their own private plunge pool and outdoor under cover sala/day rest area.
