Under the shade of the Morukuru trees and on the banks of the Marico River, Morukuru Owners House is an idyllic private safari house.
Owners House is tucked under the Morukuru canopy, and offers two ultra-luxurious and spacious en suite bedrooms. The lodge was built by the owners of Morukuru to be their own private retreat, and so is one of the most exclusive options in the Morukuru portfolio. Guestrooms are spacious and cosy, with exposed stone and timber walls, and featuring handpicked African decorative pieces along with a gas fireplace. There are plenty of nooks and crannies to retreat to on the raised decking, as well as an alfresco dining area, infinity pool, library and wine cellar. A team of eight staff attend to guests at Owners House.
The Morukuru Lodges are fantastic for families, particularly as they offer game drives to children of all ages. There is no set children's programme at Morukuru, but experienced nannies are on hand to ensure the little ones are cared for and entertained during their stay, whilst parents enjoy some well-earned relaxation. Children are presented with a Morukuru Kidz Backpack upon arrival, and throughout their stay they will be encouraged to indulge in a range of child-specific activities, from spoor tracking lessons, to mini bush walks.
But let's not forget this is a safari experience. Owners House comes with a private game drive vehicle, and knowledgeable guide, and since Madikwe is home to the Big 5, wild dogs and over 350 bird species, there is a lot to see. Bush walks and fishing safaris are also offered and the Madikwe Hide, located next to the water's edge, is the perfect spot for an evening wildlife spotting, or a sleepover for the more adventurous. After a day's exploring, relax by the pool, curl up with a book by the fire, or enjoy a massage in the private Sala. The Morukuru 'Freedom Concept' ensures that guests are completely flexible to do whatever they want, whenever they want - making for the ultimate in bespoke safari experiences.
Because the house was designed as a private residence it really feels like a luxurious home away from home.
