An exclusive-use private house, Morukuru Owner's House is tucked under the leafy canopy of an ancient Morukuru tree (Tamboti tree), on the banks of the Marico River within the Madikwe Game Reserve. It is a perfectly decadent, ultra-luxurious home away from home.
Owners House is a completely private and exclusive experience, suited to honeymooners, small families, friends travelling together or couples wanting to escape from the demands of modern life. The House has 2 bedrooms, accommodating up to 4 guests, and a choice of shared spaces. Here you will not need to lift a finger. A team of 8 staff, including a private butler, chef and safari guide, will be at your beck and call and you have the freedom to create your very own magical Morukuru experience.
Surrounded by decks and balconies, Owner's House offers plenty of peaceful nooks to hide alone or to gather for wonderful al fresco meals. Whether relaxing together by the infinity pool, or alone in your private elevated sala, the combination of dappled shade and the sound of nature is deeply restorative.
The style of Owner's House is a combination of contemporary European style with handpicked African pieces. Facilities include a superb wine cellar for your perusal, Wi-Fi connection, stereo system, dvds, cds, a small library and the opportunity to bathe outside under the stars.
