Toro Yaka was recommended to us by our son and it was recommended to him by his friend and we will do so as well - what better accolade can there be?

The whole team make you feel like one of the family, they all greet you personally as you arrive and after each game drive and again as you leave. Michael was our guide and he is an absolute expert at tracking down the animals. The food was brilliant with a good mix of individual and group seating arrangements.

This place is not cheap but the quality of accommodation, service and food is worth every penny. If you want a quality stay near Kruger with game drives this is the place to come!

Thank you Nicole, Steve and the team for an unforgettable experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed everything about our stay at Toroyaka. Nicole, Steve and staff were great hosts. Game drives with Mike and George, who shared their passion and expertise, an obvious highlight what a privilege to see the animals and birds. Accommodation very comfortable and delicious food. Thank you to all. Hope to return one day.

Fantastic crew at Toro Yaka made us feel at home. Great safaris, tremendous food, comfortable accommodation and great G&T’s at sunset.

Highly recommend Toro Yaka to anyone looking for a personalised African safari holiday.

Thanks Amore, Mike, Steve and all the lovely ladies.

We only had one regret coming to Toro Yaka.. we didn't stay long enough!!!!!
What an amazing place!

The lodge is close to Hoedspruit airport where we flew in to (from Cape Town) and our driver was there waiting for us (arranged by Toro Yaka), the trip was about 45 mins total to the lodge.

Nicole and Amore, with their staff Brenda, Tholapi & Goodman were incredibly warming and the service was amazing and attentive. It was great having the staff join us for some meals and it felt like a home away from home just chatting about our safaris and animals and life in South Africa! Our room was always made up and spotless, with lots of nice little touches that set this place apart from most other places!
Dinners in the Boma were always a great way to wind down and enjoy some of the amazing food that Nicole and Portia would whip up, no matter what food you like or don't like they always made something amazing for every guest.

The game drives with Mike were spectacular. We did not expect to see the amount of wildlife we did.. we had to start writing it all down each drive!!
Mike is an absolute legend and bush-badass, his knowledge of every single animal we encountered was incredible and we learnt so much. We always felt safe with Mike and were astounded with his tracking and night vision skills! His passion for his work and the wildlife of South Africa was evident, which made a lot of what he taught us stick with us forever.

Everything about Toro Yaka was just incredible and we have not stopped talking about it to anyone that will listen

We will be back!!

We had an absolutely incredible stay. It's no surprise that 50% of their guests return at least once - and some multiple times. The lodge, food, customer service, and ambience far exceeded expectations. And the game drives with Mike were unbelievable. Highly recommended - we hope to return to this magical place.
