September is Tourism Month, and we are excited to chart the way forward!

At Morukuru Family, we get to celebrate tourism every day! We love what we do and are excited each time we create experiences for our guests. We especially welcome September; it’s Spring here in South Africa, the weather is warming up, and it is Tourism Month. This is a great time for all of us to re-energise and think about how important tourism is and why South Africa is the perfect destination, whatever type of holiday you are planning.

This year’s Tourism Month celebrations take place against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic, but we are upbeat because the vaccine is available, and we have established Health and Safety Protocols in line with global guidelines. Tourism Month is the perfect opportunity for our international and local travellers to visit once again and explore our beautiful country.

Morukuru Family is unique because we have three exclusive use locations for guests to choose from. If you are looking for the ultimate beach holiday, an amazing African safari or a city break, Morukuru Family has the perfect property for you. Morukuru Family has gained a reputation as the specialist for exclusive use stays in South Africa. We pioneered the fully serviced and fully inclusive exclusive-use safari house experience in Madikwe Game Reserve; we later added Morukuru Ocean House and Morukuru Beach Lodge in the De Hoop Nature Reserve. Our portfolio is rounded off with AtholPlace House & Villa, our two exclusive-use properties in Johannesburg. Morukuru Ocean House is the perfect destination for a full-on seaside holiday with your entire clan, and Morukuru Beach Lodge offers a more intimate getaway for couples or smaller families. On arrival, you will discover that our beach is the perfect place to reset your mind and body, and soon you will be selecting from the large variety of activities suggested by our friendly and professional team. At Morukuru Ocean House, we don’t prescribe any schedule to our guests; it is all up to personal preference.

Maybe your ideal breakaway means enjoying a delicious glass of chilled bubbles whilst taking in the view? Maybe curling up with a great book in a quiet corner? Or getting active by taking a mountain bike ride through the De Hoop Nature Reserve, setting off on a marine walk or getting in some bird-watching.  Morukuru Ocean House and Morukuru Beach Lodge also offer ideal whale and dolphin watching opportunities. Our qualified marine guides are available to advise you on the best times and locations. What more could you ask from a beach holiday? Oh, except excellent food and a world-class wine cellar!

Head to the Madikwe in the Limpopo Province and unleash your wild side with an unforgettable bush adventure of a lifetime. Morukuru Family presents a flawless safari experience for any discerning party with a comprehensive bush “must-sees” checklist. Join one of our highly trained ranger and tracker teams for an early morning game drive, where you can immerse yourself in the cacophony of sounds as the bush stirs to life as the sun creeps up in the East. And be exhilarated by a late-afternoon expedition where you can witness the sun burning its way into the Westerly horizon whilst you sip on something cold and nibble on some delicious game drive snacks. Madikwe is malaria-free, making it very attractive to groups with young children and offers year-round game viewing with opportunities to spot the Big 5  lion, leopard, elephant, rhino or buffalo) and the rare privilege of possibly seeing the highly endangered African Wild Dog. In addition, you will have unparalleled photo opportunities with over 300 different birds, masses of large mammals, the small and interesting as well as abundant indigenous flora and fauna.


We are hungry and exhausted just telling you about these special highlights! Luckily Morukuru Family Madikwe prides itself on brilliant hospitality with out of this world food and wine all taken care of by our passionate and experienced teams. So tuck in, drink up and enjoy some sun-worshipping at our pool ...oh, did we mention the in-room spa treatments where any remaining stress can be worked away by the mystical hands of our therapists.

Share our enthusiasm for tourism and chart your way forward with this Tourism Month with any of our exclusive use holiday options - at the beach, in the bush break or the leafy Johannesburg suburbs. Come and explore South Africa with Morukuru Family.
