Madikwe Game Reserve, South Africa
Ideally designed for multi-generation guests, Morukuru Farm House is a modern African homestead offering an idyllic private setting for families or groups up to 10 guests. The five-suite Relais & Chateaux property, surrounded by lush lawns and shade trees, is set within a safe 220-acre fenced area that's home to general game, where kids can play and roam at will, and guests have the freedom to walk and explore with wildlife in view.
Furnished by well-known South African interior designer Sumari Krige, the Farm House is bright and stylish, combining contemporary decor with touches of "rustic luxury" and featuring bespoke furnishings and art pieces 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 atmosphere is kick-off-shoes and curl-up-on-the-couch comfort. The five huge en-suite bedrooms are linked to the main area by a covered walkway, and each is equally luxurious, with indoor and outdoor bathrooms and deep porcelain soaking tubs.
Amenities include air conditioning throughout, complimentary Wi-Fi, electronic safes, a comfortable lounge centered on a large fireplace, dining room, bar, library, and large heated swimming pool. When you book Morokuru Farm House for your party's exclusive use, the highly trained staff including your own private butler and chef will look after your every wish and whim. Nanny service is also available. A private game drive vehicle and safari guide are also included for your exploration of Madikwe Game Reserve, and a host of other activities are also on offer, including bush walks, fishing safaris, birdwatching, cultural visits and dance performances.
