Travellers' Choice
Morukuru Beach Lodge is a luxury boutique style 5-suite lodge in the De Hoop Nature Reserve, offering endless ocean views. We are situated just a few 100 meters from the pristine beach, surrounded by fynbos. The reserve is perfect for land-based whale watching (July-October). We recommend to spend at least 2 nights to be able to enjoy the various activities on offer including tidal walks, mountain biking and dune boarding. For those that want to relax, we also offer a pool and a hottub at the lodge. Down at the beach protected rock pools offer great snorkelling and swimming opportunities as well. Morukuru Beach Lodge has been built with the greatest sensitivity to the environment. Due to our remote location we are fully off the grid. Our electricity is generated entirely by solar panels, for the odd longer cloudy periods we do have a backup generator however. Our hot water is produced by pellet burners and the whole lodge has water based underfloor heating.

Thank you for an unforgettable family experience Morokuru Family! We enjoyed every minute of our four days being part of the most beautiful scenic surroundings and breathtaking views from all the rooms in the house. We were treated like royalty, stayed in comfortable luxury and felt completely relaxed and at home. The food was superb and we enjoyed perfect planned fun activities together. We definitely recommend this gem by the sea to everybody who loves nature!

Staying at Morukuru Beach Lodge is like waking up in a dream. What an incredibly special experience! A gem of a place in South Africa. The most stunning location with by far the most attentive and caring hosts/team ever met. Spectacular views, food, design, space, luxury - just amazing! My husband and I will certainly be back in September for whale watching. Thanks Morukuru family . You spoiled us rotten.

We are beyond grateful to the Morukuru family. Their service, hospitality, and kindness is indescribable. We could not leave the reserve due to excessive floods, but they opened their arms to us and gave us the same standard of service we received during our stay. We were also selflessly escorted the next day to ensure that we were safe. To Trevor, Luis, Debbie, Elliot, Admire, Hilton, Blessing, and others - thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We had the best time and felt so cared for throughout! Jesal & Puneet

Dear Jesal and Puneet, thank you so much for your very kind words and beautiful review. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed the service, hospitality and kindness of our team at Morukuru Beach Lodge. So sorry that the rains threw a spanner in the wheel, but of course we gladly welcomed you back for an extra night when the roads outside the reserve were all flooded / blocked and you could not return home. We look forward to welcoming you back any time! Warmest regards from all of us at Morukuru Family!
