Morukuru Farm House

Set in the malaria-free Madikwe Private Game Reserve and surrounded by 100ha exclusive-use safe area for worry-free roaming, the 5-bedroom Morukuru Farm House is an ideal getaway for large families.

Unpretentious in a ‘kick off your shoes’ way, the house still provides all the mod cons, including a sparkling heated pool and private bar area. Experienced tracker teams will lead you in the search for leopard and rhino, and the more daring can sleep among the animals in Madikwe’s totally secure hide.

The lodge offers one the region’s best children’s programmes, including spoor tracking, fun baking lessons and interactive scrapbooking sessions to provide a unique keepsake of their holiday. A trained nanny service will ensure little ones are both safe and stimulated.

After hours, sip cocktails at sunset while your chef conjures up culinary delights for you to dine on alfresco under the stars, as you swap stories about your day.

“Morukuru Farm House is surely one of my favourites in Madikwe. It offers a homely feel and you will feel so spoilt that you would not want to leave.”

Style & Décor

Morukuru is a 21st century farm house where exposed brick, timber accent walls and soothing masculine monochromes merge seamlessly with contemporary furniture and a sprinkling of traditional African artefacts wrought by local artisans and craftsmen.


Located in the North West province of South Africa, the 75 000-hectare Madikwe Private Game Reserve is one of South Africa’s premier wildlife sanctuaries. Because the animals are within in one region and have no need to make the annual migration, guests enjoy superb all-year round game viewing.

The reserve also offers a professional spa, water sports on the private dam, freshwater fishing safaris, bird watching and night-time traditional dancing for those wanting to learn to shake it, the African way!


This family-orientated house is the perfect getaway for large families or groups of friends wanting a luxurious home-away-from-home experience or who want to celebrate a once-in-a-lifetime milestone. Experienced childminders will look after the little ones while you unwind with private game walks or pool-side drinks. The house is within a 100-hectare ‘safe zone’ so guests can roam worry-free.

Best time to visit

While the Madikwe Private Game Reserve enjoys wet and dry seasons, the animals do not undertake an annual migration and therefore the reserve offers superb all-year round game viewing. The wilderness flourishes during the wet season, which runs from October to April. This is the best time to see heart-melting baby animals as it is the height of the birthing season. The drier winter months between May and September mean shorter grass and thus optimal game viewing.
