Morukuru Family Lodge

Madikwe Game Reserve, South Africa


Stay at Morukuru Family Lodge

The positioning of the Morukuru Family Lodges is truly awe-inspiring, with incredible scenic beauty thanks to the riverine forest along the banks of the Marico River, the red Kalahari soil and the vast open glass land plains, all being bordered in the South by the picturesque Dwarsberg Mountains. A one-of-a-kind destination with several high vantage points to take in and fully appreciate these unique and stunning views.

Missy & Harry

Absolutely amazing holiday. Garonga is heaven! We did everything possible and our guide was brilliant and hilarious. I can definitely recommend True Travel for their excellent advice and professionalism – they clearly are very knowledgeable about where they send their clients and made sure we had a worry-free holiday that perfectly suited us. We were particular grateful for the collection off our flight and help onto our transfer in Johannesburg, which included a very nifty queue jump due to their reputation!
