About Toro Yaka Bush Lodge

Toro Yaka Bush Lodge is a one-of-a-kind lodge located in the unforgettably pristine bushveld of Balule. It is a 30 000-hectare nature conservancy in the Greater Kruger National Park area. Set apart from others by its seclusion, intimacy and privacy, Toro Yaka allows nature lovers to experience wildlife at close proximity during their vacation.

The lodge is designed for true bush elegance and it combines personal service and closeness to nature. The four air-conditioned, private en-suite double rooms ensure tranquility and comfort at all times.

The cuisine is a fusion of European and traditional African, prepared mostly outdoors over an open fire. Guests can view animals at the waterhole from the swimming pool deck as well as from the gym. There is an abundance of birdlife in and around the lodge. Field guides accompany bush activities and the Olifants River, which flows all year, is home to crocodiles and hippos. This is also an area of great scenic splendour with the northern Drakensberg Mountains visible from most points. The lodge is only an hour’s drive from two of the main gates to the Kruger National Park. Other attractions in the area include a wildlife rehabilitation centre, a cheetah project and the Hans Merensky Golf Club.

The whole experience was fantastic. The food was excellent, the game drives spectacular, the room was spotless and the outside shower a bonus. Our hosts really went out of their way to make sure our stay with them was unforgettable.
