WITH THE KIDS TO SOUTH AFRICA
A Family Bush safari or Coastal safari Experience
A Morukuru Bush safari or Coastal safari is family therapy. Regardless of age, the shared thrill of sighting wild animals in their natural habitat is bonding, as is learning more, together. This is why Morukuru welcomes children of all ages on most activities– a privilege most accommodations don’t offer.
That said we realize that different families have different needs – some parents want to be with their kids 24/7; others crave time out. You set the boundaries, and your staff will maintain them. We know that parents only truly relax when they know their kids’ are having a great time, so we offer not only responsible care with an experienced nanny, but plenty of exciting things for kids to do.
Of course we set up the best ‘kiddies programme’; but at Morukuru we believe children should be given the same individual care we provide our adult guests, with each child’s particular food requirements, bedding preferences, interests, age and life experiences taken in to account.
From the minute they arrive and are presented with their very own Morukuru Kidz backpack, we want them to feel special. As such we offer a host of child-specific activities, from spoor tracking lessons to baking biscuits, beading to mini bush or ocean walks, scrap book making to board games. And for those kids who simply can’t live without technology, there is always access to wi-fi, computer stations, DVDs and Playstation.
Morukuru was created by a family, for families. Operationally it is also run like a large extended family, with a real focus on the importance of bringing generations together – grandparents, parents, siblings and children, creating an album of memories to last a lifetime.
Indoors – A home from home for children
Sometimes our junior guests tire of the great outdoors and just want to chill out inside. They will find a host of goodies in their Morukuru backpacks to entertain and educate them simultaneously, about the African bush and ocean habitat (depending in which house you are staying). These include educational wildlife cards, beads, activity books, epitomizing a fun, interactive learning experience about wildlife, game, birdlife and Africa in general. We also have an extensive selection of children’s movies on DVD and other (board)games to keep them playing happily for hours!
Nanny – Your African Mary Poppins!
At Morukuru Family we know that our adult guests come to rest, relax and unwind. Sometimes, that can best be achieved knowing that one’s children are in the responsible care of an experienced nanny. Our staff will gladly tailor their nanny duties to your daily requirements, and are available at any time to ensure that your children are well taken care of and admirably entertained. While you go on a bush walk or enjoy a romantic sunset dinner on top of our nearby mountain or overlooking the ocean (depending in which house you are staying), ….. or just relax with a good book as the peace of Morukuru wraps itself around you, you can unwind while knowing your little ones are happy with their very own “Mary Poppins”.
