The Big 5 malaria-free Madikwe Game Reseve is one of South Africa's premier safari and wildlife tourism destinations and it is here that you will find the Relais & Châteaux accredited Morukuru.
Morukuru is a collection of exclusive-use properties in Madikwe - Owner’s House, River House and Farm House. Owner’s House and River House sit along the bank of the Marico River and can be booked exclusively. Enjoy the luxury of having staff on hand and the private use of a 4WD vehicle and guide. The five-suite Farm House is set on the other side of the mountain, surrounded by green lawns for the kids to play on.
Bathe in luxury in the deep baths and outdoor showers with a view of the bush. Partake in recreational facilities in the privacy of your bedroom - watch the television with satellite access anad DVD player, and rest on the sofa that opens up into two super-size single beds. The living area offers fine dining and delicious cuisine prepared by your personal chef. Take breakfast in the morning sunshine, lunch ‘al fresco’ in the garden, or dinner by starlight on the pool deck overlooking the Marico River.
Lounge by the heated infinity pool overlooking the bush and take cooling dips in the water. A wooden veranda surrounds the lodge, leading to a romantic riverside raised walkway. On moonlit nights, dine around a crackling bonfire in the boma, to the calls of lions, jackals, hyenas and nightjars. At dinner, enjoy the selection of house wines from the wine cellar.
On chilly nights or lazy days, savour the welcoming peace of the luxurious indoor lounge area, with its deep, comfortable couches, night-time crackling fire and daytime view of the bush and wildlife.
