The Kruger, especially in the South can get a little busy to say the least, so a view of the park off the usual beaten track and away from the main roads at this concession is a must in the South, and Lukimbi gives you that. A nice traditional lodge with roomy rooms and good view of the river below.... More

I wanted to take my wife away for a weekend and saw lukimbi on the sanparks website. It was a great experience. The ranger Craig had great knowledge of the animals on our drives. The siute we stayed in had a pool over looking the river and was awesome to cool down in. I recommend this lodge for a great... More

LUKIMBI LODGE Beautiful bush camp setting and friendly staff with very good game rangers. Food excellent and service good. Rooms are beautifully appointed with excellent views over riverbed. Only negative is distance from Kruger airport which is about 2 1/2 hours. Highly recommend this lodge.

The lodge was absolutely beautiful, wonderful decor, perfect setting on the water with an infinity pool, spacious, and luxurious. The food was plentiful and delicious and ever changing. Our hut was gorgeous. The staff surprised us with a romantic dinner for... More

Where to start....the setting is amazing, the accommodation is pure luxury and the food healthy and great. In general the attitude of the staff was second to none and their attitude to our ('energetic') kids was brilliant. We had the good fortune of having Ranger Chris and Tracker James assigned to us for the duration of our stay and our... More

I stayed in Lukimbi for 2 nights and regret we didn't stay there longer. The rooms were spacious, clean, and had amazing views!! The main lodge was impressive...wide open views to see elephants drinking in the river, giraffes snacking on leaves, and rhinos wondering around. No guest goes hungry...all our meals were delicious!! We had the best guide and tracker... More

Lukimba Safari Lodge is located along a ridge overlooking a small river, each lodge is spaced out along a raised walkway, so if you have the last one it's quite a walk (accompanied in the evenings!) We were there for only two nights but took part in 4 game drives and midday walk down to the large Crocidile River. We... More

What a beautiful base for our Kruger NP stay - spacious lodge with comfortable lounge area, bath with a picture window overlooking the river and bush, international cuisine, armed escorts to and from the restaurant after dark, attentive and friendly staff, informative guides during the morning and evening game safaris, and lots of animals! More than lived up to my... More
