Your 5-star dream house in the fynbos

An easy inclusion for visitors to South Africa’s renowned Garden Route, De Hoop Nature Reserve is a varied conservation area along the south-east coast which is recognised as a World Heritage Site for endemic species of the Cape Floral Kingdom found within its margins. The exclusive use four-bedroom Morukuru Ocean House is the only place from which you can experience this magical region and neighbouring marine reserve in five-star luxury.

The 36,000ha reserve began as an experimental wildlife farm for breeding rare and endangered species such as Cape mountain zebra and bontebok which still traverse the area along with 84 other mammal species and around 260 species of birds. Comprising wetlands, lowveld fynbos, rocky shorelines of intricately shaped sandstone, beaches and sand dunes, this small area packs a diverse landscape while whales choose the marine reserve for a nursery in winter and early summer.

The beautiful, modern house blends beautifully with the environment and makes no impact thanks to eco-design features allowing it to operate off the grid. With a personal butler, guide and chef coming with this fabulous home you can simply focus on unwinding in nature.
