Three nights at River House - fantastic. Just to emphasize the things that make it special and that may not have been covered in other reviews: 1) the people - what a great team, working seamlessly on every detail. Outside - Mark & Gummy - so talented at finding animals and also educating along the way. Inside - Lindy and... More

Catering for a family of 10 with four grandchildren and keeping everyone engaged and happy can't be easy.....but the Morukuru family exceeded expectations. The Farm House and surroundings make it easy to relax and find your own space. Lindy manages everything in a quiet, unobtrusive way that means everybody's needs are well anticipated. Esmeralda's excellent meals are prepared and cooked... More

I booked this lodge specifically for its malaria free, AND children friendly attitude from their website. I can say my choice was 100% on the mark. We felt very welcomed, despite having three young and demanding children, all our requests were catered for, times of the drives, food, timing of meals, special requests etc etc. We were extremely happy with...

Morukuru Family is probably unique in that it provides a safari with the luxury of a private house with butler, cook, maid service with your own dedicated ranger and tracker for game rides. The team were cheerful and helpful and despite somewhat indifferent weather for the time we were there we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and hope to return.

Words cannot describe the experience that Morokuru Family allowed us to have! The personal driver / game tracker, the chef, all staff are just absolute top! I have been to many 5 star places, non of them come even close to this!

Wonderful location and lovely staff. Our holiday has been fab. Our River House was really cool. Warren, the ranger, and Timba, the tracket , were really good. We saw the Big Fives many times. Paula, the manager, was so kind and efficient. Also great massages for all of us. Excellent cuisine. Magic place, we will come back!
