The house we stayed in was perfect for our big family (we are 9) The rooms are all the same and equally beautiful. The managers Paula and Warren were perfect in their roles making the stay very pleasant and allowing our privacy as well. The cleaning staff was also perfect, always working in the background without being noticed. Not to... More

We had been dreaming of a safari for a long time. Morukuru was our dream come true. Beautiful, comfortable house with so many terraces we could have each meal in a different location. The best food in South Africa. But what surprised us the most was the value of Andrew's expertise. We did so much more than just look at... More

We had different dining experiences for every meal; a private, wonderful swimming area to cool off in the African heat. Magnificent accommodation that is well looked after looked after and the whole weekend was romantic, relaxing, beautiful and certainly memorable. What a wonderful and memorable experience. Outstanding. Thank you to the whole Morukuru team!
