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. The staff were amazing, the accommodation was super stylish and the rangers were fantastic and super knowledgable. We all loved it and felt... More

Impossible to describe in words…. Simply AMAZING! My wife and I together with some close friends we were discovering Africa for the first time and choosing Morukuru Family – River House was the right way to do it.

We visited the Owners House in December as a family of 5. We had never been on a safari before and weren't quite sure what to expect, all I can say is that this experience was one of the most memorable that we have had as a family.

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!
