The Morukuru Lodge is perfectly suited for all those who are looking for a safari experience in a private atmosphere without missing the amenities of luxury accommodation. The spacious rooms were clean and equipped with modern devices. The friendly and engaged staff was always keen to meet our needs and adopt all wishes. We spent 4 days at Owners House and didn't miss anything , highly recommended no cutbacks. No need to say that the food was delicious. We are traveling a lot around the world but Morukuru belongs definitely to our absolut highlights. Very likely we'll come back soon.

I don't even know where to begin! This was the best vacation experience all around. It began when we were picked up at the airstrip by our guide, Mark. On the way to the farmhouse, we saw giraffe, zebra, warthog, and impala. When we arrive at the farmhouse, we were greeted with song and smiles for the staff! The farmhouse is immaculate! For our group, this was the perfect set up! Just the six of us for meals, game drives, and downtime! Lyndi was a wonderful hostess! Miss V the chef was amazing!!! I will never eat that well again! Mark and ferguson were excellent on game drives. The whole morukuru experience is unbelievable! Bush breakfast, ridge top dinner, sundowner drinks, and coffee in the bush just adds to the experience. We will be back!

Utterly enchanting & relaxing. Service, food and rooms - absolutely superb and leave nothing to be desired. One is made to feel completely at ease - recommended to anyone wanting to get away from it all.

We are a family who holiday frequently in Africa, and this was our third trip to Morukuru in Madikwe, and our first visit to their new Ocean House at the Cape and their new Atholplace Villa in Johannesburg. As a family of six including two small children, we value our privacy and want outstanding service - you get this and more at Morukuru.
This time, we took over Farmhouse for six nights ( previously had stayed there in Owners House) and were able to take our one and three- year olds on game drives with us - baby seat and booster seat provided, with high chair in the back of the Landrover so that baby could have her 'Weet Bix ' breakfast when we stopped for morning hot chocolate! A very patient Andrew was our guide and we managed to see Wild Dog and Cheetah as well as the usual game.
Moving on to Ocean House for three nights - an amazing Villa by the sea, run by Calvin and Cherie, whom we had previously met at owners House in 2012. It was genuinely lovely to see them again, and the Morukuru standards were definitely being adhered to in this new venture. The Fynbos area is outstandingly beautiful, the weather was warm enough to be able to spend time on the beach, and there is more to do in the area if you were there for a longer time.
A wind-down at Atholplace Villa, where we were again the only guests. The best place to stay as a family in Johannesburg if you're there for more than one night, with its own pool, chef, butler etc.
Highest praise to the owner and the management and staff.

We have been 2 times at Morukuru Farmhouse. The décor is outstanding the room are very spacious and the service is outstanding. We stayed for 3 night and we had a lovely time. The bush dinner was the best I ever had. On top of a mountain overlooking the whole of Madikwe game reserve.
We will definitely coming back. Thanks you so much..
