I have just spent five amazing days at Morukuru in the Madikwe game reserve. Fantastic service, amazingly knowledgeable guides and trackers... Beautiful food and the rooms... Well I don't think I've ever slept in a larger bed. Really breathtaking with outdoor showers and baths ... Enjoy a sublime sojourn in the midst of the wild south Africa Bush
