Morukuru Family

Morukuru is a family of very special places, offering you a selection of the most exclusive experiences on the African continent. The family members comprise of Owner’s House, River House, Farm House, Ocean House and AtholPlace Hotel & Villa. Sophisticated yet unpretentious homes that encourage barefoot luxury, designed to help you rediscover who you are and the people you love, in pristine areas of natural beauty. No guests, other than those handpicked by you. No rules. No pre-arranged schedules or menus -> simply an adequate quotient of well-trained staff, delicious ingredients and superlative wines. Whether you are tracking predators and facing off pachyderms in the vast 75000-ha Madikwe Game Reserve, or watching Southern Right whales nurse in the 36 000-ha De Hoop Nature Reserve, or enjoying a City Break in Johannesburg, the principle is the same: immerse yourself in primal nature, in the pampering embrace of the Morukuru family, and you feel yourself reconnect to the things that really matter. Family. Friends. Nature. And yes, you.
