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.

Safari booked. SA here I come.
I have never been to SA before, so naturally I was a bit apprehensive about booking a safari on my own. I turned to for help and I'm so glad I did. Keith was so helpful, patient and saved me money! That's a win, win, win. I would recommend to anyone planning their trip and their experiences in SA.

Keith was extremely helpful during the booking process. He is the only reason I continued the booking process with your firm. There were issues with your website among other things that had me feeling uncomfortable. Keith has great energy which eased my concerns. I feel the package Keith put together is great and I expect to have a wonderful trip.

Great, efficient, going above and beyond service by Nicole!
Nicole has been extremely helpful with my queries, and going above and beyond to help me understand the Sabi sands experience better. When one of the lodge I enquired was sold out, she also recommended various options I could explore, and offers her valuable point of view. Examples - she ensured to pass on my room requests successfully and liaised with the lodge efficiently, ensuring to make our anniversary experience at the safari a great one. She also proactively offered to help me to continue looking for alternatives when I told her the transport options were beyond my budget. Thank you so much Nicole! Because of this we look forward to our experience with and at Arathusa lodge.

Repeat customer
I used in 2022 when my husband and I went on our first safari to Kruger National Park. They were professional, quick and easy to work with. I was anxious to return again in 2024 and Mel didn't disappoint with her planning, quick response and attention to my requests. Unfortunately, I cannot complete my wish to return this year but when I do return...Mel is who I will reach out to.

Excellent safari company and agent
I have booked 2 safaris with and Anja in particular. We have yet to take the second one but the first was a safari in Botswana. Everything far exceeded expectations and every detail handled with top notch drivers, hotels, safari lodges and guides. Anja was very responsive and helped us plan our safari. We were so happy with it that we are doing another this year.
