Perched under ancient Morukuru trees at the edge of the Marico River, its cascading waters a gentle, subliminal backtrack, Morukuru's first two private bush villas - The Lodge and Owner's House - are the perfect nest: whether horizontal by the pool or reclining in your sala, the combination of leafy shade and water will coax you into a permanent reverie. Privately located, yet within walking distance of each other, these can be booked as single sole-use villas, or together for a larger party.
Alternatively, there is the expansive new five-suite Farm House, a sprawling villa enjoying a stunning and utterly private bush setting on the other end of the reserve. At night, the range of experiences runs from sleeping under the stars in a treehouse hide, to sampling award-winning wines from the cellar, along with epic meals - served up how, where and when you want. Nothing is too much for the staff here: a joyous crew aiming to please and pamper. Aside from the enchanting setting, effortless service, and designer good looks, there's the thrill of unforgettable game-drives: occupying a private game reserve that abuts much vaunted Madikwe reserve, Morukuru offers an authentic and exclusive experience that only a handful are ever privy to.
