Where can you find yourself on an amazing Safari vacation in Africa that comes complete with great food, great wine and boutique intimacy – that’s also fun for the kids? It seems like an impossible feat. Well, almost impossible.
Morukuru, a luxury safari retreat in South Africa actually addresses all of the above criteria with their “Kidz” program.
Recognizing that safari trips are enjoyable for both kids and adults, they’ve put in a lot of effort in ensuring that their junior guests get as much out of their stay at the resort as their parents do.
The staff at Morukuru really understand children and love teaching them more about the African bush! There’s a lot of ways for kids to have fun here, which makes for an exciting trip for the kids and a relaxing vacation for parents since they don’t have to spend their down time keep the kids entertained.
All outdoor activities are safe and supervised by skilled rangers at all times to make sure kids get the most out of Mother Nature without getting in harm’s way. Kids can participate in all ranges of outdoor activities including fishing expeditions (with parental guidance), lessons in how to fish, and a fish BBQ at the end of the day as well as Safari trips to see the animals.
When parents need a bit of a break so that they can enjoy a romantic sunset, bush walk or even just a good book, the hotel’s nanny will watch the kids and keep them entertained.
In addition, the chef really understands the needs of children and has a children’s menu complete with appropriate eating time requirements. The resident chef also gives cookie baking lessons to kids who stay at Morukuru – a really nice touch (what kid doesn’t love cookies!).
Morukuru is located in South Africa’s Madikwe Game Reserve between the Botswana border and the Groot Marico (about four hours drive from Johannesburg).
Found in South Africa’s premier safari and wildlife tourism destinations, guests who love animals and want to learn all about the African bush will really enjoy their stay in this intimate 5-room boutique resort.
The resort caters best to small groups, family vacations and honeymooners looking for something a bit different.
