Morukuru River House

6 guests · 3 bedrooms · 3 baths
The perfect antidote to the stress of modern life, River House gives you an unforgettable chance to get up close and personal with nature. Your private safari lodge is a gated property set high in the trees of the Madikwe Game Reserve in Morukuru. You can plan your own itinerary or draw on the knowledge of your private staff – a butler, chef, children’s nanny, ranger and tracker – to make the most of your unique bushveld experience.
Ideal for family groups or weddings and social events, River House can comfortably accommodate up to six adult guests and four children. Built with an emphasis on natural materials, it’s easy to imagine you’ve stumbled upon an ultra-luxurious treehouse deep in the African bush. Crowned by a vaulted thatched roof with stone fireplaces and feature walls, huge sliding windows bring the outside in at every opportunity. A hidden treetop infinity pool and wooden terrace festooned with lanterns is utterly magical and if you’re lucky you might even glimpse a monkey swinging through the branches while you swim or take an outdoor shower.
Mornings might be spent planning a personalized safari with your very own ranger over a freshly ground coffee or light breakfast prepared by your private chef. As the evenings draw in, gather your family around a crackling bonfire in the boma and recount your adventures deep into the night. When the excitement gets too much, you can retire to the peaceful comfort of the lounge. Plump up the cushions on the fireside sofa and settle in with the kids to watch a movie on the satellite television, or play a game together at the dining table.
King size beds and ensuite bathrooms with tubs and outdoor showers exude luxury while tree-shaded balconies offer a bird’s-eye perspective for contemplation of the landscape. All three double bedrooms afford spectacular views and there’s an air-conditioned children’s room with sofa bed.
The only dilemma you might have during your stay is how to fit in all the activities on offer in the locality. When you’re not stalking wild animals with your tracker in the game reserve, your staff can arrange excursions for you. Massage treatments, a water park, golf and live entertainment are all on offer at extra cost with advance notice. It’s an 84 km drive to Gaborone from your villa and 92 km to the airport.
