Morukuru Ocean Lodge
This exclusive-use villa is in a sublime location inside De Hoop Nature Reserve, in between Hermanus and Mossel Bay. There are four rooms, all with ocean views, plus large dining, indoor and outdoor areas – you are made to feel completely at home by the considerate, attentive and discrete hosts.
This is an amazing space for a family or extended family, with a pool, kids’ play area, mountain bikes and excursions to encounter the wildlife, both on land (zebra, antelope, baboon, ostrich) and at sea (whales from July to September), as well as sand dunes and fynbos.
This eco-luxury villa is sustainably designed, generates its own electricity, and blends beautifully with the landscape.
The woodlands, rocky hills and waterways of this region make it a must-do drive for visitors. There are any number of charming villages to stop off at and sample the local produce. See especially the Wilderness National Parks Lake District and the lagoons around Knysna.
