The four of us really enjoyed the week we spent together at River House in May. Everything was perfect from start to finish. We saw the Magnificent Seven in the comfort of our own private vehicle and Owen, our ranger, and Timber, our tracker, were a great team. A tracker is a must out in the Bush and Timber was truly remarkable. Paula, our hostess, made sure that everything was perfect down to the last detail. She planned very special settings for all our meals and Asion, our chef, was so creative and our meals were absolutely delicious. Everyone at Morukkuru was great and they all contributed to making our holiday memorable. Our waiters were superb and the ladies who took care of our rooms and laundry were outstanding, The weather was perfect during our stay and we really had a fabulous time.

We have just returned from a family getaway at Morukuru's fabulous Farmhouse. It is one of the best lodges that I could ever recommend when travelling with children (especially young children as ours are! Two rambunctious boys aged 5yrs and 3yrs!). The accommodation is magnificent, the staff ever-attentive, the green lawns superb for the kids to run around safely upon, the safari experience was fun and interactive and kept the children entertained and enthralled from tracking spoor to spotting game, everything was made fun for them. Every single dining experience was a superb surprise in different settings all around the lodge and Phillip was the most magnficent host anyone could ever ask for. Thank you, thank you to each and everyone at Morukuru for making our very special family time so exceptionally memorable. (PS. If you ever get time, you MUST have a massage with Pedzi who truly has healing hands!)

This was my 3rd visit to Morokuru Family house for my moms 60th. And once again they did not disappoint. We had the most amazing time and my Mom had the best birthday, everything was perfect. I would just like to thank Andrew, Carrie and the rest of the staff for an amazing time. This is the perfect, luxury family lodge and would reccomend it to anyone

If you're looking for the very best family safari destination in South Africa and budget is not a challenge .... Look no further than the Morukuru Family. Extreme attention to detail, luxurious accommodation, delicious meals, the Big 5 and a beautiful setting are the ingredients for your stay (the staff are absolutely top notch).
