The warm hospitality of Rose-Mary, Stefan and their terrific team made our stay so lovely. We were welcomed by the Morukuru family with song and instantly felt at home. Every detail was meticulously handled and Stefan and Godfrey showed us some amazing animal action. Highly recommend this property and team to ensure a relaxing and adventurous holiday.

What is their secret? Simple: The staff. We stayed at the Farmhouse for a week recently and cannot begin to describe how special it was. I've been on over 100 game drives and stayed at over 25 high end game lodges in South Africa, Botswana, Swaziland and Uganda. Morukuru was by far the best experience I've ever had. Why? Simple:...
