Dear Shah family The whole team at Morukuru Owner's House truly enjoyed having your family in the house and we do indeed hope to see you back soon.

Words will not do justice to this wonderful experience. The accommodation, setting and staff are faultless. The house is beautifully presented and the bedrooms are so comfortable. By the time we left we all felt that the lodge had become our home and the staff our friends - obviously we did not want to leave. The safari was fabulous with... More

Our family had a truly amazing time at Morukuru. Staying in the Owners House with our 10 & 7 year old daughters. Before we arrived I was concerned the children were too young for a safari but I really didn't need to worry, Andrew and Timba engaged the children on the game drives, keeping things interesting. We all learnt so... More

Morukuru Farm House gave our family, including our 3 boys ages 8, 10 and 11, the experience of a life time. Amazing scenery, wildlife and accomodations! The service is personal and very flexible. The staff goes beyond expectations. Warren and Boyke made every safari unique and engaged the kids consistently. We stayed for 4 nights and had at least 2... More

We thought our second stay couldn't top our first. We were wrong. Outstanding food, service, accommodations, etc. Thanks to Kyle, Sarah, Timba, Esmerelda, Evans, and the rest of the crew at the Farm House. Unlike many lodges, you have your own staff, house, game drive vehicle, etc. Nothing is shared with the guests of the other houses. The staff is... More

This review is a little late but I feel it is important to share our fantastic experience staying at River House in October 2014. My wife and our young daughters had seven days of luxury, great service, excitement and new experiences. From game viewing to sundowners and all the great things in between. From fishing with my five year old... More

overall a great stay with good game viewing - guide was professional but could have been more engaging with small group. Trip into the wider Madikwe reserve would have been good - travel around the reserve too repetitive and localised

Dear Shaun, As you can imagine we are absolutely devastated with our very first 4 star review. We regret that we couldn’t meet your expectations as we put a lot effort into personalizing our guest experiences.

Couldn't get any better. Cried when I left. From the moment we left the plane to the moment we got on again I felt so well looked after and cared for.
