Morukuru family is located in Madikwe a reserve where the hotel owns a private reserve just near it. One of the big advantages is that it's located in a malaria free zone, in contrary to the Krüger national Park which is a malaria 3 zone. The Madikwe reserve has 3 runways for planes, it's a 1 hour flight from JoBurg,... More

Our stay at Morukuru was truly wonderful. Having two young children (3 years old and a 3 month old), the flexibility of Morukuru really allowed my husband and I to have a relaxing break. We took the kids in game drives when it suited and when not, they were in capable hands with Ellen and Carey. Thanks to Andrew and... More

Stayed 3 nights in the Owners House in May 2014 with our 4 and 5 year old sons. It was part of a special trip to celebrate a milestone birthday and the disappointment of having to leave Morukuru was so great that we were glad it was the start of our trip and not the end. 40 minute small prop...

My wife, 6-year-old son, and I recently stayed at the Morukuru's Owners House for a total of about 6 days. After reading about Morukuru on TripAdvisor, we were so impressed with the reviews that we changed our travel dates slightly to fit into Morukuru's availability. Given all the anticipation and many, many superlative reviews we read, I was a little... More

The magic of Morukuru is in its ability to suit any traveler. We traveled with our 3 kids, aged 6-11, and each one came away with treasured memories.

While there are many luxury lodges that offer incredible safaris, I can assure you that none match the Morukuru experience. If you are like me, and you rely heavily on tripadvisor for travel guidance, I feel confident in telling you to look no further. We flew from NYC to Joburg. We were met at the airport and escorted through customs... More

I had the opportunity to spend two days at the Owner's House recently and I have to admit, I was blown away. I've done safaris in Madikwe before, and have never been disappointed by the quality and quantity of game sightings, but the folks at Morukuru go the extra mile to make the whole experience amazing.
