Taking It Easy On The Zambezi: Wilderness Safaris’ Toka Leya Game Lodge

The lodge is located in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park just outside Livingstone. The luxe level makes it the perfect place to start or end a bush itinerary, as South African Airways flies to Livingstone from Johannesburg, the arrival and departure city for most going on safari. At Toka Leya, you can recover from what for most travelers inbound is a flight safari, or, as THD was doing, savor being back in civilization and having the Internet again.
