M19062 - Lodged in Luxury

M19062 enfolds guests in peace and comfort from the moment they enter its sumptuous living area. The main lodge can accommodate six adult guests in three double en-suite bedrooms, each featuring a super-king, super-wide bed. Airy bedrooms have individual air conditioning systems and fans, a log fireplace for chilly nights and large, insect-screened sliding doors opening on to tree-shaded private balconies.

Spacious bathrooms have deep baths with a view of the bush, and both inside and outside, monkey’s eye-view private showers for an unforgettable bushveld experience. An additional two junior guests can be comfortably accommodated in the spacious family room, where they have access to recreational facilities such as television, a DVD player and satellite access, and a sofa that opens up into two super-size single beds. This room also offers Internet and other full-feature office facilities if required. Two further junior guests can be accommodated on folding beds in suites.

The superbly appointed living area offers fine dining for a complete party of ten, with cuisine prepared to your taste and requirements by your personal chef. Guests can also breakfast in the morning sunshine to the accompaniment of cackling Wood Hoopoes, lunch "al fresco" in the shaded garden, or sup by starlight and candles on the broad pool deck overlooking the fast-flowing Marico river.

The infinity pool is surrounded by comfortable loungers for relaxing, bush-view siestas after a dip in the cool water. A wooden veranda surrounds the lodge perimeter, providing quiet nooks for the private bush showers, and leading to a romantic riverside raised walkway for the more energetically inclined.

On moonlit nights, dine around a crackling bonfire in the boma, while the calls of lions, jackals, hyenas and nightjars provide light dinner music – African bush-style - whetting the appetite for both the delicious cuisine, and the fireside stories of thrilling bush adventures. A selection of excellent house wines is provided with meals, and a superior selection is available from the wine cellar if required, at extra charge.

On chilly nights or lazy days, savour the welcoming peace of the luxurious indoor lounge area, with its deep, comfortable couches, night-time crackling fire and panoramic daytime view of the bush and passing wildlife. And, as if this is not all enough, there is a comprehensive library of topical books, DVDs and CDs available to suit all tastes.

M19062 Owner's House - In the Shade of the Big Morukuru Tree - Owner’s House.

M19062 owner’s house is the pride and heart of M19062 - the epitome of bush lodge elegance and charm. Here, as at the main lodge, the guests’ every wish, whim, desire or dream is satisfied by a caring and friendly staff, whose love of what they do and where they live, is reflected in their instinctive attentiveness and anticipation of one’s every need.

The entrance is shaded by a mighty Morukuru tree, the lodge’s namesake, a sturdy and impressive sentinel standing guard over all who enter. The owner’s house has two spacious, beautifully appointed bedrooms with the usual Morukuru facilities such as full en-suite, air-conditioning and fans, log fireplace and insect-screened sliding doors giving access to private balconies. There are also rest-and-relaxation areas where guests can hide away and listen to the whispering green canopy of trees, or to the birds throwing their calls like pebbles into a pool of tranquillity.

The bedrooms mirror one another either side of the central living area where plush soft furnishings, Madikwe stone crafted by the local community, wood and glass elements work together to create a pleasing synergy of contemporary African décor, style and ambiance. The living area boasts state-of-the-art digital entertainment and home office facilities, as well as an elegant dining area and formal lounge. Two terraced balcony areas provide outdoor seating for a the endless array of M19062-styled culinary experiences as diverse as high tea, open-air pizzas or an "out-of-Africa", colonial style dining experience complete with crystal glassware, crisp linen and silver cutlery lit by candle and starlight.

M19062 Owner’s house also has a fully-stocked, custom-designed wine cellar, featuring a great selection of good South African house and estate wines, which the butler, who has been empowered to study South African wine so as to be able to advise guests knowledgeably on food-and-wine combinations, will give interested guests an enthusiastic tour.

Catering at the owner’s house is done from a fully-equipped private kitchen where guests are also welcome to a constant supply of quality teas, coffees and home-made snacks such as rusks and biscotti. Furthermore, overseas guests are welcome to demonstrate national recipes if the mood takes them, and junior guests have even been known to hone their baking and cooking skills under the benevolent guidance of the dedicated chef!

Those guests favouring a more intrepid style of bathing will delight in the unforgettable experience afforded by the famed bushveld bath at the owner’s house. This is set against a backdrop of cascading water from the infinity pool situated one level above. Here one could easily imagine oneself to be in the midst of a Rider Haggard or Wilbur Smith novel, delighting in a rose-petal bath of indulgence under a star-studded African night sky, or wallowing in the sunlit warmth of morning.
