Morukuru Owner’s House
Madikwe Game Reserve, South Africa
Tucked under the leafy canopy of an ancient
Owners House combines contemporary European styling with handpicked African arts and crafts, featuring wood, stone and glass design elements in harmony with the natural setting. No luxury is spared: You'll find a team of eight dedicated staff at your service, home office facilities, a superb wine cellar for your perusal, Wi-Fi connection, stereo system, DVDs, CDs, a small library stocked with safari-themed books, and the opportunity to bathe outside under the stars. Large en suite bedrooms have super-king-size beds and cozy fireplaces. Among the shared spaces are a spacious living room centered on a soaring stone fireplace, outdoor dining spaces lit by romantic lanterns, and a rectangular pool surrounded by expansive decks for lounging.
Of special note: While the location is completely private, Owners House is within strolling distance from River House using a wooden walkway—an ideal arrangement should you wish to book both houses for a larger party that requires a combination of shared gatherings with maximum privacy.
