The ultimate luxury private safari experience is to be enjoyed at Morukuru, adjoining the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve on South Africa’s border with Botswana. Three beautiful villas are available on an exclusive use basis with their own personal staffs and rangers, no set schedules and a host of safari activities, including Big 5 game viewing and Madikwe’s famous wild dogs, bush walks, fishing in the Marico river, bird-watching or the luxury of doing nothing at all in this idyllic natural setting. Personal service is taken to new heights for all the family and children are entertained with wonderful bush adventures.
River House is set on the banks of the Marico River, accommodating 6 adults and 4 children in three luxury en-suite bedrooms with super-king size beds, log fires and shady private decks. The large family room has bunk beds for the kids and plenty of recreational facilities. A sparkling rim-flow pool is set on the deck over the river and there are plenty of outdoor spaces for romantic starlit dinners, as well as the large dining room and lounge.
The Owners House is private and exclusive with just two luxury bedrooms surrounded by decks and balconies with an infinity pool, an outdoor bathtub and a choice of private living areas, including a library and a wine cellar. These two houses can be booked together for larger parties.
The Farm House on the other side of the hill has five luxurious ensuite bedrooms and is a relaxed and welcoming space decorated with understated chic, its own pool and gardens and shady verandahs, lounges and bar area for convivial gatherings.
Each house has its own staff of chef, butler, housekeeper, hostess, ranger, tracker, and nanny if required, looking after every whim, so that guests can enjoy Morukuru at their own pace, whether they prefer intense sessions of all day game-viewing with magical bush lunches, or a more leisurely approach with languid afternoons of poolside siestas, a leisurely massage and some evening fishing before dinner under the stars.
Morukuru’s magic formula is perfect for family get togethers and provides a truly authentic luxury safari in sumptuous style.
