Family Travel

Taking the family to South Africa

South Africa is a popular destination for a (multi-generational) family safari. Our country is blessed with a pleasant climate and offers a diverse range of thrilling experiences. Morukuru Family operates in malaria-free areas only, ranging from Big 5 safaris in Madikwe Game Reserve to coastal adventures in De Hoop Nature Reserve and a one-of-a-kind stay in our boutique hotel & villa in Johannesburg.

Game drives with children.

Morukuru Family Madikwe welcomes children on our malaria-free safaris. All our exclusive-use safari houses (Morukuru Owner’s House, Morukuru River House and Morukuru Farm House) include private game drive vehicles. We provide booster seats if required.  A dedicated safari team comprising an experienced guide and tracker will introduce children safely and comfortably to the wonders of their backyard, the African bush.

Activities for children

One-of-a-kind tailored safari experiences await your children at Morukuru Family.  From their ‘Morukuru Kidz’ backpack filled with some fun, useful goodies to a host of child-oriented activities. These include fresh-air activities such as spoor tracking and guided discovery walks (bush or beach). For rainy days, pizza-making, board games, free Wi-Fi and a Playstation (at Morukuru Ocean House) will keep boredom at bay.

Babysitting services

At Morukuru Family Madikwe and at Morukuru Ocean House, our friendly, experienced childminders will gladly tailor their duties to your requirements. They are available to babysit your little ones during activity times and meal times for instance, or when the parents would like to enjoy a relaxing massage. At other moments, and at AtholPlace Hotel & Villa as well as Morukuru Beach Lodge, babysitting is offered at a surcharge and it is essential to book our experienced childminders in advance.
