Overview

Privacy. Exclusivity. Space. Three luxurious sole-use safari houses, privately located within malaria-free Madikwe - prime Big 5 territory. With each home offering its own chef, butler, manager, game ranger and tracker, all devoted entirely to you and your chosen guests, the Morukuru Family is there to make your every wish come true. You know you and your family are headed somewhere special when you're asked to complete a wish list before departure, and questions include 'Blankets or duvets?' and 'Any special requests for the children?' Nothing is too much trouble at Morukuru, and that is exactly what you find when you arrive. The Morukuru team have understood that privacy and exclusivity are what elevate a holiday to unforgettable memory. The "family" compromises of River House and Owner's House - both totally private yet enjoying similarly superb locations on the banks of the Marico River. River House sleeps a total of 6 adults & 4 children in three large en-suite bedrooms, each with their own fireplace and tree-shaded deck, and a kids' room (complete with TV, DVD and internet access). The more intimate Owner's House sleeps four in two en-suite bedrooms. Both provide guests (whether 1 or 10) with all the comforts of home - your own interactive kitchen, dining room, lounge, large pool and comfortably furnished decks. Better still, each home comes with its own safari guide, tracker, chef, butler and, if required, nanny - allowing you to truly set your own pace. Word soon got out that this was the perfect way to commune with Africa; alone, the only human presence people handpicked by you. Staff presence at Morukuru is discreet; should you wish to be completely alone, you need only say. The idea is not that you are a guest, but that you are - for the duration of your stay - the owner of this bush paradise.

The success of River House and Owner's House led to the development of the five-suite Farm House a few years later. While River House and Owner's House are within walking distance of each other and can therefore be utilised by a large party who want to be together yet separate, this cool, spacious home is located in an utterly private location. With a gorgeous pool set in sprawling green lawns, the more rustic-chic ethos of the Farm House makes this the ideal destination for an extended family or group of friends who want unpretentious barefoot elegance, in a house that encourages gathering as well as private reverie. This vision, of combining family bonding with personal privacy, is at the heart of Morukuru, and central to this is how the junior guests are treated.

The Morukuru Kids programme takes shape around guests. On arrival, children are presented with a backpack filled with age-appropriate wildlife cards, beads and interesting activity books. But again, the kids set the pace and itinerary. Staff are handpicked for their ability to entertain children, be it with a fishing or baking lesson, making beaded necklaces or spoor casts. As the Morukuru family says, 'Families come here to really relax and spend time together. Because you have your own home and your own vehicle, your space and time is your own. You don't have to share anything with strangers, so the whole family eases into a special space. Parents unwind watching kids play in the pool, going on safari drives together, enjoying bush dinners - and if the parents want to relax on their own, we have so many activities we can arrange for the children - too many to get through in one visit!' Regardless of where you come from, your age or your interests, the real luxury of Morukuru soon works its magic: no pressure to do anything, or be anywhere, other than in the moment. And what a special moment: in the heart of Africa, surrounded by 75000 hectares of prime game-viewing territory, and cocooned in luxury.
