Morukuru Owner's House
4 guests · 2 bedrooms · 2 baths
Set deep in the heart of the Madikwe Game Reserve, Morukuru Owner’s House is ideal for groups seeking an exclusive safari adventure tailored to their needs. This gated property offers the very best in bush lodge accommodation and would make a remarkable setting for a wedding or social event. Your personal staff – a butler, chef, nanny, ranger and tracker – will take care of your itinerary if you wish or you are free to create your own.
Standing sentinel at the entrance to this impressive 2-bedroom villa is the property’s namesake - a mighty morukuru tree. Take your morning coffee on the terrace and see if you can spot a monkey in the treetops. After an early morning swim in the lantern-lit, river-shaped infinity pool, you’ll be ready for a quick outdoor shower and a family breakfast prepared by your accomplished private chef. You may choose to rely on the extensive knowledge of your very own ranger and Shangaan tracker to plot your next safari adventure, or perhaps it’s a day for plucking a book from the shelves and soaking up the sun on a comfy poolside lounger. Home (and office) comforts have been thoughtfully provided throughout and the cozy living and dining rooms are havens for retreat as the nights draw in.
Every detail has been carefully planned to make the most of the external environment here. Thatched vaulted ceilings, locally crafted Madikwe stone fireplaces, hardwood floors and African artifacts bring the local culture alive, while full-length picture windows frame the landscape. After a barbecue on the terrace or chef-prepared family meal at the fire-warmed dining table, you may be tempted to flop into the deep-cushioned sofa and watch a DVD on the cable television.
Perhaps a soothing bubble bath is your favorite way to unwind before sinking into bed. Your private babysitting service can take care of the kids while you savor some ‘me time’. Both bedrooms have king size beds, spacious en-suite bathrooms with freestanding tubs and private balconies. Air conditioning and ceiling fans will keep you comfortable day and night.
One of South Africa’s best game reserves is right on your doorstep, and your ranger will create an unforgettable wildlife experience for your group. Private game drives and bush walks can be organized and you can even stay in a hide. If you tire of life on safari, then you can check out the massage treatments, golf and water park excursions can be arranged for a fee. The airport is 84 km away.
