Toka Leya Camp - Back-of-house tour

Toka Leya’s back-of-house tour enables guests to gain an understanding of the camp’s eco-friendly initiatives. Energy saving is explained as well as how waste water is reused in the camp nursery which was established to rehabilitate the area. The camp’s worm farm not only assists in the degradation of organic waste but is the perfect fertiliser for the indigenous trees in the nursery – which are then planted in areas where they once grew.

Toka Leya Camp - Catch-and-release fishing*

The Zambezi River hosts several varieties of bream (Tilapia) which are a good catch. Tiger fishing is an unforgettable challenge for keen fishermen, particularly during the warmer months (October - December). *Please note that a nominal park fee is applicable.
