Batoka (Batonga), a numerous Bantu nation of the Middle Zambesi, mainly between the Victoria Falls and the Kafukwe confluence, where they are conterminous with the Banyai; outlying sections reach as far E. as Tete on the Lower Zambesi, while another branch migrated many generations ago southwards to the district now known as Tongaland, between Delagoa Bay and Zululand. The Batokas are a mild, inoffensive, agricultural people, by whom the missionaries Moffat and Livingstone were well received, and who also welcomed the officials of the British South Africa Chartered Company in 1890-91.
