Morukuru River House is situated on the banks of the Marico River in a private concession inside the malaria-free Madikwe Game reserve which is in the North West Province of South Africa. Madikwe spans over 75000 hectares, offering guests a premier safari and wildlife destination. The reserve lies between the Botswana border and the area made famous by the South African writer Herman Charles Bosman called the Groot Marico.  Morukuru River House Family is entirely centred on guest experience and delighting them. Guest can enjoy game drives, bush walks (children under 16 will have bush walks in a fenced-off secure area), fishing, bird-watching, fun outdoor mini-adventures for junior guests, romantic starlit sleepovers at the double-storey bird hide, creative meal settings and options like bush breakfasts, pizza picnics, candle-lit dinners and memorable barbeques at the riverside.    Our Morukuru Family chefs love interacting and exchanging magical tips with our guests that love all things culinary!   A dedicated team of 8-10, led by the experienced host and guide, will make sure that each aspect of your stay is tailormade.
