Jetting into South Africa gives you a pit-stop opportunity in Johannesburg. Enjoy a couple of nights at AtholPlace House & Villa to set the scene for your bush and beach adventures. Book into the exclusive use house or villa and decompress after your long flight. Unwind in the private garden and swimming pool and enjoy the indoor and outdoor dining spaces. If you are keen to explore South Africa's largest city, our team gladly assists in finding the perfect excursion for you. Then, with the urban buzz of the City of Gold ringing in your ears, it is time to move on to your next destination - Morukuru Family Madikwe and 75 000 hectares of unspoilt wilderness.
For your safari honeymoon (or a romantic getaway) Morukuru Family Madikwe is the choice location to whisk away your partner. Think. laid-back luxury in the middle of the bush. Total privacy, every desire attended to and the opportunity to experience an adventure together.
You and your partner will set the agenda to include what you are in the mood for. Make the most of this once-in-a-lifetime escape with an early morning game drive, stunning African sunrise and an intimate bush breakfast for two.
Enjoy a couples massage in your private, exclusive use house; some downtime by the pool with a great holiday read or some gentle game-viewing from your private verandah.
Evenings out in the wild under the experienced watch of your ranger and guide are sure to be a highlight. This time of day lets you spot wildlife as they awake from sunny slumber, watch the magnificent fireball dip in the west, and enjoy a specially prepared sundowner stop with your favourite early evening aperitif and some delicious game drive nibbles. This sets the scene for a truly enchanting evening.
Food and wine are a big part of any visit to Morukuru Family, and a special dinner just for two under the African night sky awaits. Our team will put together a personalised three-course menu paired with hand-selected wines in your favourite varietals. Enjoying a meal outside next to the boma fire is always special, and never more so than for a passionate pair of food and wine lovers celebrating a romantic occasion.
After dinner, why not allow our team to drive you to a sleep-out in the private Hide. This secret gem overlooking a waterhole from an elevated platform is the epitome of luxury time together - thanks to the quality bed, thick duvet, warm blankets and hot-water bottles! What is more romantic than listening to the call of the wild while cuddled up together. Our team will get you settled with everything you could need - snacks, drinks and hot beverages in Stanley Flasks. Enjoy glorious stargazing since there is absolutely no light pollution in the area - track the Milky Way, the Southern Cross, Scorpio and a few other constellations. Late summer or early autumn is a lovely time to sample a night under the stars since it is the end of the rainy season and the temperatures are moderate.
Sorry to disturb you. It's time to head to the Southern Cape and the splendour of the De Hoop Nature reserve. Here, surrounded by 34 000 hectares of protected space, discover Morukuru Ocean House and Morukuru Beach Lodge.
On arrival, you will discover that our beach is the perfect place to reset your mind and body. This is your time to indulge in a delicious glass of chilled bubbles and a platter of fresh oysters? Long romantic walks along pristine beaches or some adrenalin infused dune-boarding. If the season is right, enjoy some whale and dolphin watching. Afternoon drinks enjoyed to the soundtrack of the waves, morning tea on your private balcony overlooking miles of indigenous fynbos or the ultimate outdoor bubble bath with nothing but candles, moonlight and your beloved. Is there anything more romantic than the warm flicker of firelight - we don't think so - so snuggle up with a book, a board game or a glass of wine? There is mountain biking through the De Hoop reserve, setting off on a marine walk or getting in some bird-watching if the urge to get moving calls. What more could you ask for? Oh, except for excellent food and a world-class wine cellar!
Africa is a vibrant yet serene backdrop for anyone seeking to make a profound connection. Cement your love while bonding with nature. Marriage is full of many ups and downs, adventures, and incredible memories with the person you love. So let Morukuru Family deliver an unforgettable romantic holiday to add to your everlasting memories.
