Looking for a wonderful bushveld experience to view the Big 5?

Look no further than Toro River Lodges for the experience of a lifetime with a river right in front of the lodges, morning and evening game drives with excellent game rangers in their open safari vehicles, usually ending with sundowners out in the bush. All this with no crowds to spoil your viewing of the wildlife and a chef to prepare your choice of whatever self-catering provisions you bring.

Testimonials

The perfect African Safari !! Personal attention way beyond the call of duty !! The bungalows were sumptuous with a great fireplace. The food was typical and delicious, cooked fresh every night over a wood fire in the boma. Every breakfast was spent witnessing big game going by the lodge, including giraffes and elephants. We went on Safari drives or walks twice a day, and I got to see all Big Five. During my first outing, we witnessed a lion kill. My Zulu guide even showed me how to track the abundant wildlife. I made a lot of friends, locals, and neighbors, and acquired a great insight into the life and management of a game preserve in Africa.   Brad and Cindy Philipps are the perfect hosts, as they treat you as a family. I fully and unconditionally recommend Toro River Lodges for an unforgettable African Safari.

Amazing!

My Wife and I had an amazing visit to Toro River Lodges. The accommodation is comfortable and well suited with all the amenities you would need in the bush. The views are amazing and the lodge comfortable and well kitted. The staff were always friendly and made us feel comfortable from the minute we arrived. The game viewing is incredible and the guides were professional and knowledgeable. We will definitely be going back in the very near future!
