Madikwe Exclusive Use Lodges

The Morukuru Family of Madikwe Lodges is essentially a group of three luxurious family-friendly villas located within a private concession in the lower south-eastern corner of Madikwe Game Reserve on the banks of the Groot Marico River.

Morukuru Lodges’ award-winning villas all operate on an exclusive-use basis and offer various accommodation options as follows:

Morukuru Farm House sleeps from four up to 10 guests in five spacious en-suite bedrooms. Just on the other side of the Morukuru Hill, approximately 15 minutes’ stroll away is the Owner's House which can accommodate up to four guests in its two double en-suite bedrooms, while Morukuru River House can house up to six adults and four children between its three generous en-suite bedrooms and one kids/study room.

The beauty of a visit to Morukuru is that you’re in charge of your timetable and have complete freedom to do as you wish when you wish. The full staff complement from the rangers and trackers to the butlers and housekeepers are entirely at your disposal and will do everything in their power to ensure you enjoy an unforgettable bushveld getaway.

Morukuru Lodges offers a mixture of family-orientated activities geared to help you get maximum value from your time in this pure wilderness Eden. These include tailored game drives, guided bush walks, and birdwatching excursions in the company of your dedicated ranger and talented Shangaan tracker. And angling enthusiasts will no doubt be thrilled by the plentiful fish species to be found in the khaki green depths of the Groot Marico River.

Morukuru also provides many fun ways for junior visitors to get in touch with the great outdoors. The adventures are all completely safe and supervised by the Lodge’s skilled rangers whether it’s giving them their first fishing lessons, a mini bush excursion in non- Big Five territory, baking, swimming, and more. There is even a nanny service available to allow parents to take some downtime with total peace of mind. The winning touch is the novelty Kidz Backpack jammed with safari treasures.

When it comes to mealtimes, Morukuru Lodges is renowned for its creative settings and options like al fresco breakfasts, pizza picnics, classic candle-lit bush dinners complete with crystal glassware, crisp linen and silver cutlery, and legendary riverside barbeques. Morukuru’s chefs are meticulously trained and can prepare a range of delicious dishes from traditional, formal and nouvelle cuisine to quick snacks on demand, served with fine wines of your choosing from the Lodge’s well-stocked cellar.

For a thoroughly pampering experience, treat yourself to one of the indulgent massages provided by the on-site therapists. Adjourn to the starlit bed the double-storey bird hide for a romantic sleepover rendezvous. Or enjoy the wonderful live entertainment offered by the local dancers from the nearby Molatedi village, always a favourite with guests.
