Fantastic wildlife experiences, great cooking and very professional, attentive and adorable members of staff. We have visited numerous game lodges in SA, Namibia, Botswana and Tanzania, Morukuru is without doubt one of the best.... More

We are just back from the most magical trip to Morukuru and it's hard to know where to start with the praise! We went with a large family group, so were spread across Farm House, Owners and River House. Personally, we stayed in Farm House, which is even more stunning in reality than it looks in the pictures. Large, airy,... More

You would think that for a family of six, with 4 children between the ages of 6 and 16, it would be difficult to find a place we all like, let alone one we are all happy to keep returning to year after year. The reality is that it is difficult... with the notable exception being Morukuru where the service... More
