As an oasis of unstinting luxury in a paradise of unspoilt African bush, M19062 offers guests the very best of both worlds. M19062 is a satellite reserve on the border of Madikwe, the third largest reserve in South Africa, which teems with birdlife and game, including the famous "big five" – lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo.
Offering superb five-star accommodation and delectable cuisine to just one party of guests at a time, the lodge and large private reserve provide complete privacy, yet allow 24/7 access to the public, greater Madikwe reserve area as desired. Outside visitors, including Madikwe personnel, enter M19062 territory by strict previous permission only.
Guests determine their own itinerary and menus, giving them the freedom to tailor their stay for maximum personal enjoyment.
Romantic, exciting night game drives to see a possible kill, day drives to watch elephants at the waterhole or lions lazing in the heat of the day, cooling dips in the refreshing infinity pool overhanging the Marico river, or memorable meals under the stars - all add to the tranquillity and excitement of the African bush at Morukuru, the ultimate, five-star African getaway.
