Our company celebrated its third birthday and 2015 MTN Radio Awards at the magnificent Morukuru Family and we could not have imagined a more ideal destination! We were surrounded by the serenity of the bush and the luxurious accommodation, amenities and service of Morukuru for three days as we did two live breakfast show radio broadcasts from the picturesque Farm...

Our stay at River Lodge could not have been more fantastic. We arrived from a great hotel in Mauritius already fairly relaxed and refreshed but the Morokuru experience is on another level altogether. We and our 3 children (aged 11, 8 and 5) were made to feel completely at home and were looked after brilliantly, which is to say we...

We enjoyed a wonderful few days at the River House. Madikwe game reserve is stunning and perfect for a family safari with our young children. Everything from the short flight up to Madikwe [from Johannesburg], to off roading in the bush alongside a pride of lions, was such great fun. The team at the River House were fantastic and made...

Ok, so I've been trying to work it out in my head why the past five days have been the greatest experience of my life. It boils down to three reasons; firstly, I came on Safari with my family (kids, brother and his family and my mother) - so that's a given that it's a wonderful experience. I don't spend...

This was our second visit to Morukuru and we found it even better than before. Medikwe game park is huge and we came upon lion on several occasions, plenty of elephant, rhino and two memorable sightings of cheetah. The service in the Owner's house was impeccable and the food delicious.
