The magic of Morukuru is in its ability to suit any traveler. We traveled with our 3 kids, aged 6-11, and each one came away with treasured memories. The staff are warm and engaging and took special care of the kids. Our chef was talented and generous with her time, surprising the kids with time in the kitchen with her.... More

While there are many luxury lodges that offer incredible safaris, I can assure you that none match the Morukuru experience. If you are like me, and you rely heavily on tripadvisor for travel guidance, I feel confident in telling you to look no further. We flew from NYC to Joburg. We were met at the airport and escorted through customs... More

I had the opportunity to spend two days at the Owner's House recently and I have to admit, I was blown away. I've done safaris in Madikwe before, and have never been disappointed by the quality and quantity of game sightings, but the folks at Morukuru go the extra mile to make the whole experience amazing. From the time you... More

Sad how quickly “normal life” takes over when back, as it's approximately a month ago now since we have visited Morukuru. The memories of an amazing holiday remain forever though. Very often our hearts and minds go back to the wonderful time in Morukuru. After visiting the River House some years ago, we had the pleasure to stay in the... More

The four of us really enjoyed the week we spent together at River House in May. Everything was perfect from start to finish. We saw the Magnificent Seven in the comfort of our own private vehicle and Owen, our ranger, and Timber, our tracker, were a great team. A tracker is a must out in the Bush and Timber was... More

We have just returned from a family getaway at Morukuru's fabulous Farmhouse. It is one of the best lodges that I could ever recommend when travelling with children (especially young children as ours are! Two rambunctious boys aged 5yrs and 3yrs!). The accommodation is magnificent, the staff ever-attentive, the green lawns superb for the kids to run around safely upon,... More

If you're looking for the very best family safari destination in South Africa and budget is not a challenge .... Look no further than the Morukuru Family. Extreme attention to detail, luxurious accommodation, delicious meals, the Big 5 and a beautiful setting are the ingredients for your stay (the staff are absolutely top notch).
