Morukuru Lodges Madikwe Game reserve


Morukuru is situated on the Eastern side of the Madikwe Game Reserve which is located in the North West Province of South Africa. It spans over 75000 hectares offering the guests a premier safari and wildlife destination. It is a malaria-free reserve and one of the biggest national parks in South Africa. It can be found between the Botswana border and the area made famous by the South African writer Herman Charles Bosman called the Groot Marico. This portfolio of lodges has focused more on the development of bush villas rather than the traditional lodge layout making it ideal for families who want to feel like they are at home in the bush.

Morukuru currently offers three separate villas. Owner’s House, Lodge and Farmhouse are all part of the unique Morukuru Family experience. The Villas operate on an exclusive basis, so there are never any other guests besides you and those you choose to accompany you. In addition to this, Morukuru owns their own land as well as having traversing rights onto the Greater Madikwe Game Reserve so you'll not only have the entire property to yourself, but personal staff to attend to your every whim. Even more wonderful are the utterly private safaris, your personal game ranger works with a gifted Shangaan tracker bringing you the very best that there is to offer at Madikwe Game reserve. There are no set schedules at Morukuru, you are the masters of your stay with them and have complete freedom to do as you wish, when you wish.
