As 2018 draws to a close we look back on the year that was a challenging year for tourism in South Africa, due to the water shortage in Cape Town earlier in the year, but thankfully the rains have been good and the dams and reservoirs in the Western Cape are almost full again, bringing the situation back to almost normal.
For Morukuru Family it has been a year of many highlights, firstly with the launch of our new Morukuru Beach Lodge in the De Hoop Nature Reserve early July and the sheer number of bookings has completely surprised us. Thank you all so much for your support, it is amazing to see so many guests enjoying the beauty of this hidden eco-conscious gem in South Africa!
In October we again were surprised by even more good news, when both Morukuru Family Madikwe and AtholPlace Hotel & Villa were included in the prestigious Condé Nast Traveler’s 2018 Readers Choice Awards. Our heartfelt thanks to all the people who voted for us all over the world and special thanks goes to our wonderful staff who have worked so hard to achieve these accolades. A very proud moment for us all.
We wish you a warm, wonderful, Festive Season together with your family and loved ones and a fabulous 2019, with lots of travels and hopefully welcoming you back at one of our properties in the near future!
