Location
South Africa’s malaria free Madikwe Private Game Reserve is one of Journeysmiths’ most popular destinations for family safaris. And when you stay at Morokuru River House - a private residence set on the bank of the Marico River - it gets even better still!

There are three double rooms, each with an en suite bathroom, which makes it ideal for a family or small group of friends. The property is child friendly, and the staff will even provide babysitting services if you fancy a night spent alone.

Great attention has been paid to make sure that Morokuru River House is comfortable for guests of all ages. In the main bedrooms, the beds are super king size, though there’s also a family room with four bunk beds for the kids. There’s both heating and AC, so you can adjust the air temperature as you see fit, and you can shower in privacy out on the deck or inside the immaculate bathrooms.
In between game drives and walks, you can swim in the pool, relax in the study, or watch DVDs and play on the Playstation. The house staff really have thought of everything.

The design of Morokuru River House is a fusion of African and European styles, where the indoor and outdoor spaces flow into one another. You might have a sundowner drink on the tree shaded private deck, dine al fresco, and then, once darkness falls and the air temperature cools, retreat inside for a nightcap by the fire.

Besides community support, this initiative has supported Parks Board projects such as wildlife collaring, darting, monitoring and relocation initiatives for over a decade, securing a sustainable future for the reserve.

Explore The Garden Route South Africa
To experience a little bit of everything that South Africa has to offer, you can hardly do better than to drive along the coastal road of the Garden Route between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. It’s an extraordinary journey, and there’s wildlife on both land and shore, endless beaches, historic battlefields, and the vineyards are never far away. One day you might be whale spotting at Hermanus — renowned as one of the best whale watching locations in the world — and the next you could be learning about the Battle of Rorke’s Drift, handling antique weapons and scrambling over the British and Zulu positions.
