Special accommodations!


Morukuru Family consists of three beautiful accommodations, in Johannesburg, in the Madikwe Game Reserve and now also in De Hoop Nature Reserve in the south of South Africa. These luxurious and special accommodations are affiliated with the prestigious Relais & Chateaux chain, which guarantees high quality service and delicious food!

Start your South Africa trip in Atholplace Hotel or the Atholplace Villa. Both are located in Athol, an upscale suburb of Johannesburg. Atholplace Hotel offers nine spacious suites. There is a library with fireplace, a wonderful place to read a book. In the garden you will find a large swimming pool with luxurious sun beds. You can dine in the AtholPlace Restaurant with a fantastic menu and the possibility to dine inside or outside. The Villa is an ideal base if you want more privacy. With three bedrooms and a large living room, this villa can accommodate six adults and two children. In the large idyllic garden with its own swimming pool, you and your family can enjoy yourselves. The nearby district of Sandton is the place in Johannesburg to shop or enjoy cozy terraces and good restaurants.

Afterwards, we will gladly take you to Morukuru. The private safari lodge with 3000ha of private land, directly adjacent to the Madikwe Game Reserve at about 4 hours drive northwest of Johannesburg. It consists of The River Lodge, The Owners House and The Farmhouse. The River Lodge and Owners House are a short distance from each other on the Marico River. The Farmhouse is a little further away, in the middle of the beautiful bush. You can book the three Morukuru lodges in the Madikwe Game Reserve exclusively. A big advantage because you decide how long and what time you go on safari. It is also up to you to decide what is on the menu for lunch and dinner, in consultation with your own chef. In addition, the entire staff is at your disposal.

You will make your safaris in the 75,000 hectare malaria-free Madikwe Private Reserve. Here you will not only find the Big Five, but also other special animals, including the endangered African wild dogs. Together with your private ranger, you will discover the secrets of Madikwe. All the lodges have a swimming pool so you can relax and take a refreshing dip in addition to the safari activities.

From the north we travel to the south. We are on our way to one of Africa’s most beautiful coastal areas, the 36000 ha De Hoop Nature Reserve. This area is the ideal location for nature lovers, cyclists and hikers. Numerous whales visit from May to September the bay whose coastline consists of sandy beaches and rocks. Behind it is an extensive area of dunes. By the sea here is the beautiful, luxurious family home; Morukuru Ocean House and it features four bedrooms. This gracious private house with swimming pool, fireplace, bar and wine cellar is equipped with all the luxuries. With the option of a private cook, butler and optional nanny, you can enjoy the warm hospitality of the Morukuru Family without worries!

Of course you can also book these special accommodations in unique locations separately. If you travel with your family or a group of friends, a private villa with multiple bedrooms is really ideal!
