    Activities

    Morukuru is situated on private land in the Madikwe Game Reserve. The game drives at Morukuru are entirely tailored to fit in with what guests would like to see and what time they would like to see it.

    Morukuru also offers the opportunity for guests to walk free on safaris, exploring the vista of wildlife, flora and fauna of the African bush. Morukuru not only offers guests their private game-viewing vehicle and dedicated game ranger; but also an experienced tracker to assist in the game-viewing experience.

    Bush walks are only open to parties of a maximum of eight people, with children sixteen years and younger not allowed to participate for safety reasons.

    Morukuru overlooks the Marico River, and many different species of fish live in its depths. There is a ranger on hand to provide fishing lessons, and freshly caught fish can be barbequed right on the spot. The double-storey bird hide offers an excellent spot to bird watch over the accompanying dam.

    Fully solar powered, surrounded by an electrified fence and fitted with toilet facilities downstairs, the bird hide can sleep a couple spaciously for a romantic evening by starlight or a bird watching breakfast.
    Bush breakfasts, pizza picnics, colonial-style candlelit dinners atop the nearby mountain or freshly barbequed fish at the Riverside are just some of the culinary choices on offer.

    “The highlight of our holiday!”

    Our group of 5 adults stayed 2 nights at the River House. What an incredible experience. The house is fantastic, wonderful rooms and amenities and we were invited to treat it as our home. Nothing was too much trouble for the wonderful staff.The food was excellent…each meal was served in a different location at the property and even one breakfast in the bush. All great but we were really there for the game drives and they certainly didn’t disappoint! Evan our ranger and Gammy our spotter found amazing sightings, even a lion hunt and kill, a once in a lifetime experience! Wild dogs finishing off their meal, fabulous elephant viewings and not forgetting all the interesting smaller creatures. Do a game walk with Evan if you get the chance. And prepare to gain weight with the wonderful food! many thanks to Ilse and the rest of the team. We hope to return!

    “Fantastic”

    The location, accommodation, games drives, etc are as great as they come. But what makes this place exceptional is the fantastic staff. Days after we’ve left we still miss them! What a magical experience created entirely by friendly, sweet, and switched-on people going as far as it can go in terms of hospitality. We had our young children with us and we’ve never had such a great bunch of people looking after us and our children, ever! Most highly recommended and we’re dreaming of getting back there to hang out with the Morukuru team…

    “A fantastic experience!”

    This was our first time to Morukuru (tho not to South Africa) and we stayed in the owner’s house. The accommodations were exquisite but more importantly, the people were amazing and made the trip. Our host, Paula, and our butler, Evanz, made sure our every need was taken care of in-house; while Shane and Boiky (our guide and tracker) provided a fantastic safari experience. Esmeralda cooked us wonderful meals and we were very tempted to try and bring her home with us:) Finally thanks to Masego, Maggie, and Pedzi who contributed to our great time behind the scenes. Thanks so much to you all!

    “PARADISE”

    We had magical and unforgettable days at Morukuru. We were in a group of 13 people and we were split into Farm House and Owners House. The staff was extremely helpful and did everything to please us. The rooms were very comfortable and clean and the food always delicious! Morukuru really exceeded our expectations. I would like to congratulate the entire team: Lorene, the reservation manager, always efficient and kind, Debbie and Paula, Isaac and Evanz, Joyce, Jose and Esmaralda, and finally the rangers and trackers, Warren, Ernest, Shane and Boiky, who gave us incredible moments on the safaris. I highly recommend Morukuru Family!
