About Morukuru Ocean House

Cocooned in luxury, free in your own four-bedroom oceanfront home within one of Africa’s most beautiful coastal reserves.

Often cited as one of the most pristine coastal reserves in South Africa, De Hoop offers 51km of unspoiled white beaches and dunes lapped by a warm Indian ocean, as well as limestone cliffs, rock pools, wetlands, coastal fynbos and a home to more than 260 species of birds.

Ocean House also offers a bird’s eye view of the continent’s greatest whale nursery, as Southern Right whales migrate to the shallow coastal bays off the Overberg Coast for the calving and nursing season from July to November.

In short, Morukuru offers access to some of the continent’s most undiscovered gems, able to satisfy visitors’ craving exclusivity, yet providing some of the most productive wildlife interactions in Southern Africa.

Ocean House is completely off the grid, relieving the tension between tourism and sustainability with an innovative eco house offering guests the luxury of five star with limited damage to the environment.

Beach: Offering the best land based Whale watching experience. Sunny weather, endless white sand dunes & inviting rock pools, dolphins, porpoises & seals are all part of this oceanic experience whilst the greatest attraction remain the whales.

Family friendly: A Morukuru safari is family therapy. Regardless of age, the shared thrill of sighting animals in their natural habitat is bonding, as is learning more, together. You set the boundaries, and your staff will maintain them.
