Dear paulbS3232RB, Thank you so much for this great review! We are glad that you loved your stay and experience at Farm House. The entire team (Warick, Buzy, Shaddy, Jenna, Ingrid, Lerato, Mpho and Aubrey) loved hosting you and Warick and Buzy had great fun sharing their passion for wildlife and nature with you. Not just during the gamedrives, but also during the walk. We are very grateful for the recommendations and look forward to welcoming you (and your friends) back one day. Warmest regards from all of us at Morukuru Family!

The word magical is the only one to describe our time at the Morukuru River House. We were a party of 8; two children with their mother, grandmother, great aunt, great uncle, and two family friends. Our trip to South Africa ended in Madikwe and the time there is forever

Dear dezzieB, Words can not really describe how we all at Morukuru Family feel after reading this extensive review.... You have blown us away by your obvious passion and love for the African bush and we are so happy that we are able to share this with you. You managed to really capture the essence of the Morukuru Family experience in your review. It is not just about luxury accommodation, it is about the staff caring for their guests and making sure everything is perfect. The entire team (Evan, Ilse, Boiki, Evans, Beauty, Esmeralda, Amy, Ellen, Maggie, James & Masego) had such a great time hosting you for seven nights and we already look forward to your next stay. We would also express our gratitude for your commitment to support nature conservation as well as the local community. Thank you so much! Warmest regards from all of us at Morukuru Family!

We booked this place in May 2018 as we know this is key to our safari holiday. From the time we arrived, all the staff were at the front welcoming us with their beautiful choral voices. Such a warm start FOOD - have you ever had a private chef cook anything you want, anytime

Dear YokeKengC, Thank you so much for this wonderful review! We are glad that you booked Morukuru Owner's House well in advance for your safari holiday. The entire team (Warick, Jenna, Funi, Evans, Patrick, Aubery, Susan, Maggie, Ketha, Thabo and Gloria) had a great time hosting your family. Warick and Bugs loved taking the boys out for fishing and they also really enjoyed doing the game drives and showing you the amazing wildlife and scenery of Madikwe Game Reserve. We hope to be able to welcome you back for another stay one day. Wishing you all a fabulous Festive Season and a very happy 2019. Warmest regards from all of us at Morukuru Family!

As we landed on the eastern Landing strip in Madikwe on our small 12 seater propeller plane that had brought us in from Lanseria airport outside of Johannesburg, we saw a couple of Jeeps parked next to a small building at the end of the runway. It was about 1pm and the haze

Dear BJReisman, Thank you so, so much for this truly wonderful and extensive review! You managed to really describe the experience well, from start to finish. We are very happy to read that you had such a good time at Morukuru River House. The entire team (Debbie, Andrew, Justice, Thabiso, Godfrey, James, Thabo, Khetha and Susan) enjoyed hosting you and listening to your stories about your life back home. It seems the boys were also very lucky when they went out fishing. We look forward to welcoming you back, so we can show you the leopard and the hippos too! Warmest regards from all of us at Morukuru Family!

At River House you may see animals (including elephants or buffalo) drinking from the river on the opposite bank. At Farm House you may well see various antelope species as well as monkeys, warthogs and mongoose, all like to frequent the lawns around the house. Other then that you won't see many other animals from both houses as the houses are fenced to protect our guests (including children) from predators.
