Family Rhino Conservation Safari

A conservation safari for the whole family

Morukuru Goodwill Foundation and Morukuru Family have created a 3-days ‘Safaris with a Purpose’ package exclusively for you and your party which includes at least the following three special elements:

  • Joining an Elephant collaring / Rhino notching / Lion (or other big cats) veterinarian procedure which includes the use of a helicopter and a large team of experts, including the vet.

  • Visit of the local school in Molatedi Villa and be informed by the local headmaster about the various projects supported by Morukuru Goodwill Foundation. If appreciated or initiated by the guests we will also gladly facilitate, manage and prepare your own personal interactive project with the school. (Half day)

  • Private talk by Rob Harrison White or one of the other local researchers in Madikwe Game Reserve, explaining about the very useful work they are doing. (Half day)

Day One (arrival)

Arrive in Madikwe Game Reserve by car or flight around 2 PM and transfer to your accommodation to get settled in. Depending on the number of guests and your personal preference this could be the 2- bedroom Morukuru Owner’s House (sleeps 4), our 3-bedroom Morukuru River House (sleeps 6 adults + 4 children under 16) or the 5-bedroom Morukuru Farm House (sleeps 10).

Lunch upon arrival, followed by an afternoon game-drive and dinner.

Day Two

Early morning wake-up and morning game-drive, followed by breakfast in the bush or at the house. Private talk by Rob Harrison White on his research and conservation project with Jackals. Lunch and afternoon game drive, followed by dinner.

Day Three

Wake-up and breakfast, followed by a 40-minute drive to Molatedi Village, just outside Madikwe Game Reserve, for a visit to Molatedi School, where the headmaster will explain more about the primary school and the various specific projects that Morukuru Goodwill Foundation supports. Afterwards, drive back to your house for lunch and some time to relax. Afternoon game drive, followed by dinner.

Day Four

Wake-up early and drive toward the meeting point with the team of experts for the conservation procedure that needs to happen. This could be the collaring of an Elephant, the nothing of a Rhino, the collaring of a Lion or Cheetah or similar. Witness the entire operation from start to finish and be part of it. See the helicopter take off to find the animal, the animal being darted from the helicopter and walk up to the animal once it has been fully anesthetized. You could very well be asked to assist in keeping the animal cool, or in taking some samples and measurements. After a successful operation, the animal will be woken up and you will watch it get back on its feet and walk off. This whole process might take a few hours.

Afterward, you will enjoy a nice breakfast (at the house or in the bush) and you will have time to relax and enjoy the pool. In the afternoon you will enjoy lunch and another afternoon game-drive, followed by dinner.

Day Five (departure)

Early morning wake-up and morning game-drive, followed by breakfast at the house and departure from the house around 10:30 AM.

Starting at $7560 per adult and $1980 per child based on a family of 2 adults and 2 children staying at Morukuru Owner's house
