The lodge offered rustic comfort and luxury in accommodations, meals and common areas, and spellbinding safari experiences twice a day. Our tracker Thomas was expert at finding wildlife and our ranger Craig was expert in driving us to where ever it was and educating us regarding animal... More

Arrive either by self-drive or by flight into Nelspruit KMIA International Airport and a road transfer of about 11/2 hour to the Lukimbi Safari Lodge. Kruger is home to the Big Five... More

Our 5 nights stay at Lukimbi has been unique, everything was amazing, location is incredible with its lodges on a river. As soon as you get there you start to live & breathe silence and nature. Lodges are very spacious with a deck over viewing the river and a bath tube with a breathtaking view. Our mornings and afternoon safaris... More

Shane and Mike our guide and tracker saw to it that we enjoyed multiple safaris, each one unique and amazing. Learning, watching and discovering were all made fun and exciting by their knowledge and Shane's humor. The luxury suite was spacious. Our teen had her own bathroom. We were beyond amazed when elephants quietly sauntered over just beyond our private... More

We stayed at Lukimbi for 4 nights - the last stop on a 2 week honeymoon trip. It was just incredible! On arrival, you are greeted with moist towels and a beverage and escorted to the main lodge for check in on comfy sofas. The main lodge has to be seen - multi level with soaring ceilings and decorated in... More

Our stay at Lukimbi was the highlight of our trip. The place is awesome, you have buffaloes, hippos and elephants just a couple of meters away from the pool. The lodges are beautiful and well-equipped. The staff was excellent, especially our ranger (Kim) and Spotter (Strange) who showed us a lot of animals. The best experience was the 2 leopards... More

We stayed at Lukimbi for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon and loved it! The lodge is absolutely gorgeous - the rooms are huge with high ceilings and its own private deck. If you pay more for the premiere suites, you also get a private pool, more space and a 2nd bathroom but I personally didn't find that even... More

We spent 3 nights at Lukimbi lodge in our own private villa overlooking the river and wildlife. Zane guided us during 21! hours of exciting game driving where we spotted lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino, elephant, hyena, giraff, zebra and much more. We also did 2 very interesting bush walks where we saw hippo and rhino up close. Excellent breakfast, lunch... More
