Morukuru Lodges, Madikwe

South Africa

A luxurious home away from home in Big Five Madikwe.

Choose from three intimate lodges in the malaria-free Madikwe where everything happens your way. At these family run villas, there are no schedules or itineraries. You decide when to receive meals from your own chef, exactly how your private butler looks after you, and when your personal ranger and tracker take you on adventures into the Big Five reserve.

The three-bedroom River House is perfect for families. Enjoy al fresco dining sat around a crackling fire, cool off in the infinity pool, and unwind with a massage overlooking the river. A safari holiday has never been so luxurious.

The Farm House offers a chic stay. With five suites, it’s perfect for friends travelling together or larger families who like a little space to relax. Trade animal spotting stories in the spacious lounge before heading into a pretty garden, which includes a private pools and courtyard for some relaxation.

Owner’s House is the most luxurious and intimate of the three villas. It sleeps a minimum of two and a maximum of four in two bedrooms. There is a lounge, dining room, kitchen, library and wine cellar inside and a 14-metre swimming pool and romantic treetop den outside.

Stay at any and you’ll find it’s the staff that takes the lodges to another level. The kids will often be busy discovering dung beetles with the ranger or baking cookies with the chef, giving you a chance to fully relax. Everyone will work to ensure your stay is an unforgettable one.

All three lodges are found in the Madikwe Game Reserve in the North West Province of South Africa. Johannesburg Airport is a 4 hour drive, but we recommend a short scheduled charter flight.
