Luxury Private Bush House Overlooking River

Morukuru River House is sheltered by looming trees lit up by lanterns at night, casting golden reflections into the water of the deck’s infinity pool. The house embraces its surroundings in the 75,000ha Madikwe Game Reserve, evident in its seamless incorporation into its environment – down to the floorboards of the viewing deck that have been built around a protruding tree’s trunk.

Families, couples, kids and outdoorsmen will be endlessly entertained in this part of the world. Venture out on expert-led game drives, bushwalks and fishing safaris. Take drumming lessons from a local or leave the park for an afternoon to ski or wakeboard at the nearby Molatedi Dam.

The River House boasts three en-suite bedrooms with added luxuries such as king-size beds, private viewing decks, bathtubs with views of the bush and private indoor and outdoor showers. The family room can accommodate four children on two bunk beds. A stay at Morukuru includes exclusive use of a chef, butler, hostess, housekeeper, personal tracker, guide and nanny – eager to satisfy any whim. Relish traditional cuisine with dinner overlooking a viewing hide at the water’s edge.
