New kid on the block
I like to consider myself a part of the Morukuru family, having worked with them so closely over the years. No words can describe how thrilled I am with the opening of their latest addition, Morukuru Beach Lodge on 07 July 2018. It’s the perfect complement to Ocean House, their private villa 'just down the road’. Beach Lodge will be available for couples and small families not necessarily looking for complete privacy of the villa, or the price tag that comes with it!
The De Hoop Nature Reserve holds a very special place in my heart. It’s an exceptionally beautiful region along the Cape Whale Coast, just a three hour drive from Cape Town near the southern most tip of Africa, Cape Agulhas. Set aside many years ago as an experimental wildlife protection area, the idea was to create a haven where vulnerable and endangered species could be nurtured and their numbers brought back from the brink of extinction, before repopulating surrounding areas.
This conservation initiative doesn’t end at the shoreline – the bay is internationally renowned for some iconic marine giants. Migrating Southern Right Whales, amongst other species, flock to these waters between July & November and can be viewed easily from land.
Pieter and I will be heading there in August, and I’ll be sure to keep you posted about our trip and my opinions of the whole experience.
