Luxury in the heart of the Madikwe Game Reserve
A modern contemporary African homestead, offering the perfect private setting for families and larger groups.
Located on the other side of the mountain from the sister houses within the Morukuru Family private property, the five suite Farm House is an oasis, surrounded by luscious green lawns, and set within a 100-hectare fenced-in safe area which is home to general game, so kids can play and roam at will, and guests have the freedom to walk and explore.
Furnished by well-known South African interior designer, Sumari Krige, the Farm House is bright and stylish, with bespoke items produced by local artists and craftsmen in a neutral palette. Following the owners’ brief to create spaces where families with children of all ages can completely relax, the overall sense is kick-off-shoes and curl-up-on-the-couch comfort. The five huge en-suite bedrooms – linked to the main area by a covered walkway – are all equally luxurious, because Morukuru Family believes that a family holiday should be special for every family member.

KIDS TAKING THE KIDS TO SOUTH AFRICA
A family bush safari or a coastal safari experience
A Morukuru Family bush safari or coastal safari is a wonderful family therapy. Regardless of age, the shared thrill of seeing wild animals in their natural habitat is bonding. This is exactly why Morukuru Family welcomes children of all ages, a privilege many of the other accommodations don’t offer.
We are very aware of the fact that different families have different needs – some parents want to be with their kids 24/7, others crave time out. When staying with Morukuru Family, you set the boundaries, and our team will maintain them. We know that parents only truly relax when they know their kids are having a great time, so we offer not only responsible care by an experienced nanny, but plenty of exciting things for kids to do as well.
We do not offer a set ‘kiddies programme’, but we rather believe that children should be given the same individual care and attention that we provide for our adult guests, with each child’s particular food requirements, bedding preferences, interests, age and life experiences taken into account.
From the moment you arrive your children will be handed their very own ‘Morukuru Kidz’ backpack filled with some fun and useful goodies. We offer a host of child-specific activities, from tracking lessons to baking biscuits, from beading to bush- and/or marine walks, from scrap book making to board games. And for those kids who simply can’t live without technology, there is always access to free Wi-Fi, computer stations, DVDs and Playstation.
Morukuru Family was created by a family, for families. We like to welcome our guests into our large extended family, with a real focus on the importance of bringing generations together – grandparents, parents, siblings and children, creating an album of memories to last a lifetime.
Indoors – A home from home for children
Sometimes our junior guests tire of the great outdoors and just want to chill inside. They will find a host of goodies in their Morukuru Kidz backpacks to entertain and educate them simultaneously. These include educational wildlife cards, beads, activity books, epitomizing a fun, interactive learning experience about wildlife, game, birdlife and Africa in general. We also have an extensive selection of children’s movies on DVD and other (board)games to keep them playing happily for hours!
Nanny – Your African Mary Poppins!
At Morukuru Family we know that our adult guests love to rest, relax and unwind. Sometimes, that can best be achieved knowing that one’s children are in the responsible care of an experienced nanny. Our staff will gladly tailor their nanny duties to your daily requirements, and are available at any time to ensure that your children are well taken care of and caringly entertained. While you go on a bush walk or enjoy a romantic sunset dinner on top of our nearby mountain or overlooking the ocean (depending in which house you are staying), ….. or just relax with a good book as the peace of Morukuru wraps itself around you, you can unwind knowing that your little ones are happy with their very own “Mary Poppins”.
