This was our second visit to Morukuru and we found it even better than before. Medikwe game park is huge and we came upon lion on several occasions, plenty of elephant, rhino and two memorable sightings of cheetah. The service in the Owner's house was impeccable and the food delicious.

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.

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.

This place was incredible. I had been on safaris before but this was truly special. We were a family of 11, aged between 69-4 years old, and every need was catered for from the second we arrived.
