Of all the safari lodges I have experienced in Africa Morokuru Family Madikwe is the best! From the staff, to the accommodation, the scrumptious meals, and the fun filled incredible game drives I cannot fault anything here! Thanks so much to all the special staff that put so much thought and effort into every consideration for our family. The boys were in tears when we had to leave this magical place. I couldn't recommend this place highly enough, definitely go, go as soon as you can, you won't have any regrets.

WOW! WOW! WOW! Our family spent 5 nights at Morukuru and every minute was cherished. The attention to detail is untouched. By the end of the trip, the staff feels like family. We did not want to leave! Thank you Tamsyn, Trevor, Esmeralda, Shane, Bugsy, Boykie and the entire team for this life changing experience. Our kosher needs were met to the tee and we were made to feel like the only guests who ever visited. Thank you thank you thank you! We hope to be back one day soon!

Thank you very, very, much for your lovely review and feedback, after your recent stay at Morukuru Owner's House & River House. We are thrilled to read that you had such a good time and loved every minute of your stay, including a few special elements such as the drumming at Ed's View and the guided walks for the children. You were also very lucky to find the Hyena den with the tiny cubs. The entire team loved hosting you and we look forward to welcoming you back! Warmest regards from all of us at Morukuru Family

Just 4 hours out of Johannesburg this incredible malaria free, Big 5 wilderness, Madikwe Game Reserve, awaits to spoil you with great wildlife sightings. From the minute you arrive at Morukuru Family Madikwe you are welcomed by the warm African spirit that the staff exude, smiling and friendly faces, willing and eager to assist with your every need. The exclusivity of Morukuru lodge is what we loved the most, not having to see other guests or needing to go to a general main lodge area for meal times, but rather feeling completely relaxed in what very much feels like your own home from the very first day. We especially loved that meal times were more about quality family time instead of having to make sure the boys kept quiet and didn’t disturb other guests. This magnificent, spacious villa is what dreams are made of, with beautifully decorated living rooms and bedrooms all leading onto large terraces which blend into the natural surroundings, making you feel like you are completely secluded and in sync with nature. The game drives were superb, Evan and Gami are a dynamic duo who are knowledgeable about every aspect of wildlife, flora and the reserve. They managed to position us right in the middle of a cheetah hunt, and made sure we were always perfectly positioned to get the best photographs, as well as never making us feel rushed at a sighting. Evan is great with kids and added in so many exciting little moments for them, which they will never forget. The chef is accommodating at meal times and will whip up whatever your heart desires, albeit we aren’t fussy eaters, and were excited for him to spoil us as he wished and we were always pleasantly surprised with the delicious, hearty meals he presented. Leaving this amazing lodge was the hardest part of it all.

This was special from start to finish. Evan is a very knowledgable guide, keen to impart information and also fun. Ilse is a very thoughtful guest manager and looked after our every need. What is fantastic is the ability to tailor your stay so that every day is different.
