I stayed for 3 days at the Farmhouse with my friends. Every day we went on safari and we had seen a lot of different animals, marvelous! But not only that made our stay like this; also the people from the Farmhouse are so lovely. The meals at wonderful places were delicious. It felt like home:)

This was our second trip to South Africa but our first stay at Morukuru... We spent 5 nights and 6 days in the Owner's House.... and I cannot sing the praises enough.. The staff - Donald, Ascci, and the ladies had us all spoiled rotten... we wanted for nothing... The food Ascci prepared was outstanding...and the presentation and dining locations......

Our 2 nights spent as Owner's House in Madikwe will remain to be one of our most special times ever! The friendliness of the staff, the immaculate presentation of the house and the unforgettable quality of the food will forever be etched in our memories. This was truly a very special experience for both of us.
