Its extensive grass plains are home to not just the Big 5, but also the African Wild Dog, Cheetah and a large selection of plains game, as well as over 340 species of birds. The rich diversity of vegetation ensures a wide range of game and wildlife as well as a terrain and topography, that offer ideal game viewing and photographic opportunities.

CHECK-IN & CHECK-OUT

Due to the specific nature of exclusive use houses we have to be strict about the check-in time (from 2pm) and check-out time (latest 11am). Morukury Owner's House doesn’t have a communal space (restaurant) like ‘normal’ lodges, therefor they can’t accommodate guests that arrive early or depart late, unless an additional night is booked.

MORUKURU GOODWILL FOUNDATION

Morukuru Family strongly believes in giving back to Africa and to its wildlife, in the form of preservation and conservation, and to the local communities through education, empowerment and encouragement. They are involved in various Wildlife and Community projects: removing alien vegetation from Madikwe Game reserve, assisting the Molatedi school library with book donations as well as soccer kits for the up and coming soccer stars, recycling initiatives, and assistance with Parks Board projects like darting, collaring and relocation activities. Guests can become a part of this as well, by voluntarily donating goods or funds towards any of the projects. It is also possible for guests to be involved in some of the nature conservation projects. Please enquire and we gladly advise options and possibilities.
