This special lodge is nestled in the heart of the Balule Nature Reserve, a 38 000 hectare conservancy, which forms part of the Greater Kruger National park area.

ToroYaka means “My Dream” in Northern Sotho, one of South Africa’s local languages, and the creation of Toro Yaka Bush Lodge has fulfilled our dreams, by establishing a haven of peace and tranquility from which to share our passion for nature.We have designed the lodge in a modern elegant style, with a relaxed atmosphere, allowing you to kick back and feel at home. The six en-suite double rooms ensure tranquility and comfort at all times.

Wildlife can be viewed at the waterhole, and there is an abundance of birdlife in and around the lodge. The swimming pool provides a welcome relief from the summer heat.

Steve has spent more than a decade sharing his knowledge and love for the bush with clients from all over the world at luxury game lodges throughout South Africa, and would love to share this with you. Nicole is a qualified holistic therapist and takes care of all the tiny details. Together with the Toro Yaka Staff, they will ensure your stay to be a memorable one.

The Olifants river, which flows year round through the Balule, is home to hippos and crocodiles, and the whole area is one of scenic splendor, with the Northern tip of the Drakensberg mountain range being visible from many points.

Together with all of this, we offer you good home cooked food, friendly service, warm South African Hospitality and loads of enthusiasm.

We look forward to meeting you and having you share in our Dream.
