Furnished by Janine Butter, Morukuru Farm House is bright and stylish, with bespoke items produced by local artists and craftsmen in a neutral palette. Following the owners’ brief to create spaces where families with children of all ages can completely relax, the overall sense is kick-off-shoes and curl-up-on-the-couch comfort. The 5 bedrooms – linked to the main area by a covered walkway – are all equally luxurious, because Morukuru Family believes that a family holiday should be special for every family member.
Located on the other side of the mountain from the sister houses (Owner’s House and River House) in the Morukuru Family private concession inside the Madikwe Game Reserve, this modern contemporary 5-bedroom African homestead offers the perfect private setting for multigenerational families.

Immerse yourself in the captivating world of Madikwe with a personalised safari team at your service. Comprising a dedicated private guide, skilled tracker, and an exclusive-use game vehicle, your game drives become exhilarating journeys of discovery. Guests of all ages, including children, are wholeheartedly welcome to partake in these memorable expeditions.
Experience the thrill of catching your own fish and then setting it free again. The Marico River that runs through Morukuru is the largest natural source of water in the province, pumping one million litres per day: the river is clean and the fishing is good, though as any fishermen knows, patience will be required! Species you may encounter at the end of your line include Yellow Fish, Catfish, Bream, Eel, Paper Mouth, Three Spot Tilapia and Carp. If you (or your younger guests) have never tried their hand at fishing before, your ranger is on hand to provide guidance.
At the local village dam…… just outside the park enjoy an afternoon of fun on the Morukuru boat. Be it fishing, water skiing or soaking up the sun by the water there is something for the whole family. Usually starting the afternoon with some cooking on the Braai for lunch at the waters edge before jumping in to take part in the many activities. As the sun sets across the water filling the sky with indescribable beauty enjoy one last drink before heading back into Madikwe.
Traversing the reserve in a comfortable safari vehicle allows one to cover thousands of kilometers in search of exhilarating game sightings, but for a true taste of Africa nothing beats being on foot in the midst of the wilderness. On a bush walk you smell, see and hear so much more, and getting up close and personal with insects and plants, with a ranger explaining their survival techniques, can be fascinating (such as the Acacia robusta’s ability to let off a stinky pheromone when it senses an animal grazing on its leaves!).
Bush walks in Madikwe are not for the fainthearted however – you are on foot in a wilderness area where predators roam free. You are of course protected by the presence of your fully armed ranger and the bush knowledge of your tracker, but to be on the safe side children under the age of 16 may not participate in bush walks and for those over the ages of 60 require a doctor’s certificate of good health. Alternatively a stroll through the near by 100 hectare fenced in area home to general game can be enjoyed by the entire family subject to availabily. Bush walks are also limited to a maximum of eight people.
