Overview

Northwest South Africa Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 3.0 Bathrooms, 4 Sleeps

The perfect antidote to the stress of modern life, River House gives you an unforgettable chance to get up close and personal with nature. Your private safari lodge is a gated property set high in the trees of the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve in Morukuru. You can plan your own itinerary or draw on the knowledge of your private staff a butler, chef, childrens nanny, ranger and tracker to make the most of your unique bushveld experience.

Ideal for family groups or weddings and social events, River House can comfortably accommodate up to six adult guests and four children. Built with an emphasis on natural materials, its easy to imagine youve stumbled upon an ultra-luxurious treehouse deep in the African bush. Crowned by a vaulted thatched roof with stone fireplaces and feature walls, huge sliding windows bring the outside in at every opportunity. A hidden treetop infinity pool and wooden terrace festooned with lanterns is utterly magical and if youre lucky you might even glimpse a monkey swinging through the branches while you swim or take an outdoor shower.

Mornings might be spent planning a personalized safari with your very own ranger over a freshly ground coffee or light breakfast prepared by your private chef. As the evenings draw in, gather your family around a crackling bonfire in the boma and recount your adventures deep into the night. When the excitement gets too much, you can retire to the peaceful comfort of the lounge. Plump up the cushions on the fireside sofa and settle in with the kids to watch a movie on the satellite TV, or play a game together at the dining table.

King size beds and en-suite bathrooms with tubs and outdoor showers exude luxury while tree-shaded balconies offer a birds-eye perspective for contemplation of the landscape. All three double bedrooms afford spectacular views and theres an air-conditioned childrens room with sofa bed.

The only dilemma you might have during your stay is how to fit in all the activities on offer in the locality. When youre not stalking wild animals with your tracker in the game reserve, your staff can arrange excursions for you. Spa treatments, cocktail workshops, a water park, golf and live entertainment are all on offer at extra cost with advance notice. Its a 2 hour drive to Gaboronne from your villa and 4 hours to the airport. The hospital is 2 hours away by helicopter.

The Morukuru Family is there to offer you the best exclusive private safari getaway. Set in a private property exclusive for its guests, but within an unfenced part of the malaria free Madikwe Game Reserve, Morukuru stands for an exclusive concept as you will have one of the three amazing Morukuru Villas to yourself with your own itinerary (so no schedules!) and your personalized highly qualified staff to look after you during your stay.

Nestled in your own private villa, you will be surrounded by an abundance of the infamous big five and including Lion, Elephant and Rhino. This is the ultimate bush freedom with a friendly brand of South Africa luxury and hospitality and access to the finest of natures beauty.

You'll not only have the entire property to yourself, but a personal staff to attend to your every whim. Even more wonderful are the utterly private safaris. Your personal game ranger works with a gifted Shangaan tracker; together they're a sharp team and will lead you not on any ordinary game drive to see predators (which you will), but on an adventure that will make you feel as if you are personally stalking wild animals. You can even enjoy breakfast or dinner right in the bush! While the rangers love of the bush is infectious, he is also brilliant with kids, making the whole wildlife experience interactive and fascinating.
