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 biosphere. Toro Yaka means “My Dream” in Northern Sotho, one of South Africa’s local languages, and the creation of Toro Yaka Bush Lodge has fulfilled the dreams of Steve and Nicole, by establishing a haven of peace and tranquility from which to share their passion for nature.

The Main lodge has been designed to maximize interaction with nature. During winter the warthogs are regular visitors and most nights the bush babies can be seen. The communal area includes indoor and outdoor dining areas, indoor and outdoor lounge areas, and an honesty bar. The Boma offers an African dining experience around an open fire under a starlit sky whilst the 9m swimming pool is a refreshing relief from the summer heat. The gardens’ indigenous trees and flowers attract an abundance of bird species, and animals gathering at the waterhole can be viewed from the communal lodge area and pool deck.
All the rooms are air-conditioned, with ceiling fans, mosquito nets and private decks. The en-suite bathrooms have both inside and outside showers, double basins and separate toilets. They are spacious and comfortable and the insect screens ensure closeness with nature, whilst keeping the insects out.
