The new morning bush walks provide a unique opportunity to witness and observe nature from a different perspective.  Being the best way to experience the African bush, guests participating in these walking safaris learn interesting facts about the mammals, insects, birds and reptiles as well as the savannah ecosystem.

During the adventurous game drives at Toro Yaka which are in open 4x4 Land Rovers, guests have the chance to encounter Africa's incredible wildlife including lions, leopards, cheetahs as well as elephants, rhinos and hippos.  Bird watching in the Balule Nature Reserve is ideal for more than 250 recorded species.  Many birds can be found in the lodge's garden itself, including sunbirds, kingfishers, owls, francolins, cuckoo’s and much more. The diverse habitat of this region which consists of upland forests, riverine forests and bushveld savannah, is home to 80% of South Africa's raptor species.   All of the birds 'Big 6', namely the Kori Bustard, the Ground Hornbill, the Lappet-faced Vulture, the Pels Fishing Owl, the Martial Eagle and the Saddle-billed Stork, have been recorded here.
