9-Day safari to Victoria Falls, Kafue and Lower Zambezi National Parks
Zambia retains the charm of Africa undiscovered – so we bring you a stunning itinerary combining three incrediable areas of this beautiful country. From the adrenaline-filled region of Victoria Falls and one of the Seven Wonders of the World to the remote plains of Busanga in the Kafue National Park and the spectacular scenery and wildlife of the Lower Zambezi National Park , this itinerary will leave you with a yearning for more and ensure some phenomenal safari memories!
Overlooking the mighty Zambezi River, Toka Leya Camp has 12 spacious en-suite safari-style tents. Wooden walkways snake between the units and main area, limiting our footprint on this pristine area. Activities (on fully inclusive rate) include a tour of the Victoria Falls on the Zambian side, game drives within Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, river cruises, fishing excursions and guided nature walks. Tours of Livingstone town and museum and visits to Mkuni Market and Simonga Village are all outstanding ways of learning about the people and culture of this part of Zambia. Other activities on offer in the area at an additional charge include sunset cruises, helicopter flights, micro-lighting, canoeing, jet boating, and white water rafting.

These lion are often seen in and around camp.
