Toka Leya Camp - 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). Good birding can be enjoyed within the confines of Toka Leya Camp itself, on boat cruises and out on game drives. #Safari #Africa #Zambia #WildernessSafaris

Toka Leya Camp - Interestingly, there is a distinct difference in the fish species above and below the Falls, which clearly form a comprehensive barrier to fish movements upstream: 39 species are recorded from below and 84 above the Falls. Nile crocodile and hippo are common above the Falls. #Safari #Africa #Zambia #WildernessSafaris

Toka Leya Camp - The presence of several protected areas in the vicinity, from the Zambezi National Park in Zimbabwe to the Mosi-oa-Tunya Zoological Park in Zambia, means that herds of big game such as elephant and buffalo, as well as smaller species and even predators such as lion persist in the area. #Safari #Africa #Zambia #WildernessSafaris

Toka Leya Camp - Toka Leya Camp has a number of systems in place that aim to rehabilitate indigenous flora in the area. The systems include a greenhouse and nursery project to grow seedlings, an environmentally friendly waste-water treatment plant, and a worm farm. The fertiliser created by the worms is then placed in the greenhouse and nursery to start the cycle once more. #Safari #Africa #Zambia #WildernessSafaris
