This was our first family holiday with friends to South Africa, and what a truly memorable experience. We arrived at Morokuru to an extremely warm greeting from Vivian, Shane, Gummy, Asion, Donald and team, all of whom we would come to know quite well after our 3 days. Our rooms, the lodge, the meals, the service, the smiles....and the game... More

Quite simply 5 star does not cover the experience we had at Morukuru Family (our group stayed in all three lodges - Farm, River and Owners House). Every single part of our stay exceeded expectations - the rooms, the lodges, the food, the outdoor bath beneath the African stars, the game drives and animal sightings and last but certainly not...

We visited Morukuru for a third time in August, staying at the fabulous farm house. After two previous trips I wondered if the third time would be as good as we remembered. It was even better! Fabulous staff who were all great with our children. The food was better than ever and the service as good as it gets. Thanks... More

Its pointless adding to all the other reviews about the people and place which are both exceptional. But one hint for those who are into creature comforts as well as everything else on offer. There is a list of wines available at extra cost which has enough wines of great quality, and at low prices, to prove South Africa is... More

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.
