Embrace all that is luxury in one of the three private houses of Morukuru Family. As part of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux collection, the property is situated on the Madikwe Game Reserve and offers a premier safari and wildlife experience. This reserve is malaria-free and its rich diversity of vegetation ensures a wide range of wildlife, including the “Big Five”. Choose your South African adventure by day, and then retreat to a perfectly decadent home away from home.
The Morukuru Family is committed to uplifting the local community through various projects and, as a guest, you are part of the sustainability model.
Morukuru Family Freedom Concept
Morukuru River House is part of a bespoke bush experience, and operates on a sole use and fully inclusive basis. This means that there are never any other guests besides yourself and those who you invite along for the adventure. Imagine having the entire property and personal staff to attend to your every whim. Adding to the opulence are daily private safaris. Your personal game ranger works with a gifted tracker to bring you the very best that Madikwe Game reserve has to offer. There are no set schedules here, so there is complete freedom to do as you wish, when you wish!
