This exclusive-use safari house can sleep 10 guests and is ideal for multi-generational travel or milestone celebration parties. It comes complete with a dedicated hospitality team comprising of private safari guide, tracker, hostess, Chef, butler and housekeepers committed to delivering an unforgettable, family safari. There are never any other guests besides yourself and those who you invite along. Your personal game ranger works with a gifted tracker to bring you the very best that Madikwe Game reserve has to offer. With no set schedules there is complete freedom to do as you wish when you wish.

Children are allowed on game drives throughout the Madikwe Game Reserve and are able to enjoy every magical aspect of being out on the savannah. Upon arrival, every child will receive a Morukuru Kidz Backpack filled with treasures. Other kiddie adventures include supervised exploring, baking, swimming, fishing and much more.

The 5 bedrooms - linked to the main area by a covered walkway - are bright and airy with an en-suite bathroom and glass doors and windows that open out onto the bush. Within the unpretentious yet stylish house, you will share a lounge, pool, dining room, garden, open kitchen, wine cellar and top range of digital audio-visual equipment. The overall sense is kick-off-shoes and curl-up-on-the-couch comfort.

Your personal chef will have been meticulously trained to provide a wide array of catering options from traditional, formal and nouvelle cuisine, to relaxed and casual snacks on demand. To compliment your dining, you will be able to personally select wines from the cellar. The staff will offer creative meal settings like bush breakfasts, pizza picnics, candle-lit dinners, and riverside barbeques.

The Farm House is over the mountain from its sister exclusive-use safari houses, Morukuru Owner's House and Morukuru River House.

Morukuru is committed to uplifting the local community through various projects and, as a guest, you are part of the sustainability model.
