The detail

The new Morukuru Beach Lodge, scheduled to open its doors on 7 July 2018, is situated at Koppie Alleen along the pristine coastline and has been built with the greatest sensitivity to the environment. The electricity is generated entirely by solar panels, however, for the odd longer cloudy periods, they do have a backup generator. Hot water is produced by pellet burners and the whole lodge has water based underfloor heating.

Morukuru Beach Lodge consists of 4 luxury Ocean View Suites and 1 Dune View Suite with views of the Indian Ocean and the surrounding sand dunes. Morukuru Beach Lodge is a sanctuary of refined comfort and luxury with each suite 90 sqm in size and fitted with King size beds and separate en-suite which includes an outdoor bath.

Morokuru Beach Lodge can also be booked out exclusively or alternatively Morukuru Ocean House which is a 4-bedroom oceanfront home. Morukuru Ocean House can accommodate 8 adults and 4 children. The 4 suites all have their own en-suite bathrooms and glass doors overlooking the ocean.

The lodge facilities include a sparkling swimming pool, roof-top terrace, a restaurant offering indoor and outdoor dining, hotel bar, complimentary Wi-Fi, Lounge facilities, nanny services (at a nominal fee), library, and room service.

At Morukuru Beach Lodge guests can enjoy a wide range of activities. Two guided activities daily are included in the rate. Depending on the tide and the weather, the guide will decide which activities to offer. Guests at Morukuru Beach Lodge can enjoy complimentary use of outdoor equipment (like snorkels, masks, water shoes, wetsuits, mountain bikes, sand boards, ponchos, gumboots, beach umbrella, towels).

De Hoop Nature Reserve is flanked by the De Hoop Marine Protected Area, one of the best land-based whale watching areas in Africa, or anywhere in the world really. During the winter months (June – October) Southern Right Whales migrate to the shores of De Hoop from Antarctica to mate and calve. The less common Bryde’s whale and the rare humpback have also been seen here, although they are much harder to spot. Pods of dolphins are also seen frequently. From the beaches and sand dunes, the Southern Right Whales can easily be seen and it is not necessary to go out by boat, which is actually not allowed in the Marine Protected Area.

Besides the whales, De Hoop Nature Reserve is also home to 86 other mammal species. These include the rare bontebok and Cape mountain zebra, eland, grey rhebok, chacma baboon, yellow mongoose, and caracal. The illusive Cape Leopard, although rare, is also found in the reserve. Birdwatchers will find the reserve particularly rewarding as well, as it is home to 260 bird species including the endangered Black Oystercatcher and the only remaining colony of Cape Vultures.

De Hoop Nature Reserve is also part of the Cape Floral Kingdom, which forms part of one of six Floral Kingdoms of the World. The Cape Floral Kingdom occupies only 0.04% of the world’s landmass and was classified as a World Heritage Site in December 2004. Situated at the southern tip of Africa, this majestic floral kingdom is the only one to be fully contained within a single country. Incredibly it has the highest known concentration of plant species in the world, its nearest rival, the South American rainforest, has only one third the number of species. Even more remarkable is that 70 percent of the Cape’s impressive 9,600 plant species grow nowhere else on Earth.

Morukuru Beach Lodge and Ocean House are ideal for solo travelers, couples and families looking for a combined beach and adventure getaway.

Fantastic travel agent for African safari family trip!
Wow! Shann was and is fantastic! She figured out a way to make our entire trip work. We are going on a 2 week trip to South Africa and Botswana. She really helped tie it all together as a wonderful, cohesive trip. She is super nice and super smart and very knowledgeable. She is also flexible and thoughtful, etc., etc. When the chips were down (and we literally were considering pulling the plug on the whole trip), she found a way to make the entire itinerary work and got us excited about our wonderful adventure! Highly recommend!
