Whale watching heaven
Ocean House offers a bird’s eye view of the continent’s greatest whale nursery, as Southern Right whales migrate to the shallow coastal basins off the Overberg Coast for the calving and nursing season from mid-July to November. In short, Morukuru Family offers access to some of the continent’s most undiscovered gems, able to satisfy visitors’ craving exclusivity, yet providing some of the most productive wildlife interactions in Southern Africa.
Luxury exclusive-use house
Morukuru Ocean House can accommodate 8 adults & 4 children (all ages are welcome!). The 4 suites all have their own en-suite bathrooms and glass doors overlooking the ocean. The interior design is inspired by the surrounding fynbos dunes and is of the highest quality. Morukuru Ocean House includes the same features as those you will find at our private houses situated within the Madikwe Game Reserve: amazing views, top service, a wide range of activities from guided marine walks and mountain-biking to sandboarding and of course 100% privacy. Morukuru Ocean House also operates according to the famous Morukuru Freedom Concept: no schedules! A sparkling pool, delicious food, lovely drinks served by your personal butler, your own private kitchen with chef, open plan lounge areas, dining areas, garden with amazing views, romantic fireplaces and more.

#DayZero the facts.
Ocean House is fortunately not affected by the current water crisis in the Western Cape and Cape Town. We are off-the grid of the municipal water supply and source our water from independent boreholes on our property, which are powered by solar panels. Guests are able to shower or bath and continue to have access to running water, but we do encourage everyone to be water-conscious at all times. This underpins our commitment to conservation and sustainable tourism.
