Ashleigh – age 8 stayed at Toro 15-19 July 2017 – Kids on Safari
“Toro is fun, it is interesting, you learn things, it is exciting! I really loved seeing all the animals – especially the elephant and their baby, the buffalo and the lion eating its kill. It’s pretty and the game drives are fun!”
Josh – age 12 stayed at Toro 15-19 July 2017 – Kids on Safari
“Rating 10/10! Toro is fun, safe if you understand the environment, welcoming, beautiful, it makes you feel comfortable and is the best wildlife experience you’ll ever get! The pool is awesome – its cold but refreshing on the very hot days”
Bush hospitality at it’s best! From the moment you cross the bridge into the ‘lapa’ area of Toro River Lodge – you feel the magic of Toro. The décor and ambiance of the Main living areas extend to the private suites – all overlooking the river. The entertainment area lends itself to the lazy enjoyment of fellow guests and the game viewing that’s possible from the lodge itself. Braaing dinner in the outdoor ‘lapa’ area was always the perfect end to the day. The big night skies are amazing! Game drives are a real highlight! Elephant herds (with the tiniest calf we have ever seen still suckling on its mother) right up at the vehicle, lions feasting on a kudu and many sightings of our favorite giraffe were particularly exciting game sightings. Our ranger Andrews was a fountain of knowledge and was so good and patient with our kids. Toro provided an amazing farewell for us when an elephant walked below our suite viewing deck while we were waking up and onto the waterhole in front of where we had our final breakfast. Toro provided some of the most spectacular views and game sightings we have had – highly recommended.

Nestled under a giant 1000-year-old jackelberry, towering wild-fig and marula trees, right on the banks of the Makhustwi River, Toro River Lodges has been built within perfect harmony with nature. The river valley setting along with the ”High-tea” watering hole right at the lodge’s front, brings a mystique like no other. With all Villas occupying a prime slightly elevated position, Lodge sitting area with an expansive wooden deck lets you overlook the River and Toro Hippo Pool, with a Raised Hig-Tea area right alongside Hippo Pool to enjoy the largest and one of highest concentrations and diversity of wildlife species per acre on the planet. This, coupled with long-term ethical and responsible conservation management practices, has resulted in animals which are perfectly habituated to human presence. Our vehicles and walks pose no threat, and you will be able to get really close to countless numbers of all animal and bird species present.
