Toro Yaka Bush Lodge

Toro Yaka, which means "My Dream" in Northern Sotho, is a one-of-a-kind lodge situated in the unforgettably pristine Balule. Set apart from others by its seclusion, intimacy and privacy, Toro Yaka allows nature lovers to experience wildlife at close proximity.

The lodge has been designed in true bush elegance, and combines personal service and closeness to nature. The six private en-suite double rooms ensure tranquillity and comfort at all times. The cuisine is a fusion of European and traditional African, prepared mostly outdoors over an open fire.

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, the famous Timbavati white lions and the Hans Merensky golf club.

Animals can be viewed at the water hole from the deck, and there is an abundance of bird life in and around the lodge. Game drives and bush walks are accompanied by a professional field guide. The Olifants River, which flows all year-round through Balule, is home to crocodiles and hippos. This is also an area of great scenic splendour, with the northern Drakensberg mountain range being visible from most points.

The only way to really experience the pulse of the bush is through your feet. Morning bush walks gives you the opportunity to get closer to nature and afternoon, sun downer drives extending into the night, afford potential sightings of nocturnal animals.

Bird watching is rewarding, with over 350 species recorded in and around the area!

Sundowners, whether on game drives or at Toro Yaka Bush Lodge is always a special occasion.
