Morukuru Family River House is situated in a private concession inside the malaria-free Madikwe Game reserve which is located 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 Family River House is entirely centered on guest experience and delighting them. We can offer game drives, bush walks (children under 16 will have bush walks on non big five private Morukuru property), fishing, bird-watching, fun outdoor mini-adventures like supervised exploring for junior guests, romantic starlit sleepovers at the double-storey bird hide for adults, creative meal settings and options like bush breakfasts, pizza picnics, candle-lit dinners and memorable barbeques at the riverside. Local dancers from the nearby Molatedi village are also a firm favourite.
