I accompanied a group of 34 here as part of a world cruise land program and I have to say, it was such an incredible experience from start to finish. There was not one thing of which I could fault, except maybe more time is needed here! All of the staff from management to the guides and trackers, wait staff... More

We stayed at Lukimbi for 2 nights and it was stunning! We really enjoyed it. The rooms were clean, the food was excellent and the staff was friendly. I was surprised about the food as I wasn't expecting to have such delicious meals. The staff were so friendly and helpful, they made us feel at home. Our ranger Craig and... More

Let me start by saying, we don't usually stay in all inclusive, high end accommodations. For our final 2 days (of a total of 9 days) in Kruger National Park we decided to try this and experience totality. It is not what I would want for a steady diet but it was quite nice. From the time we pulled up... More

What a holiday we had at Lukimbi Safari Lodge. If you want to see the BIG 5 and more close- up this is the lodge to chose. We couldn't fault it if we tried. Our game driver "Sheane" and "Tom" our lookout were the best. we saw everything you could wish to see really close up but Sheane our driver... More

A fantastic safari lodge. The lodge is great, with friendly staff and good food and wine. We had a comfartable suite with private swimming pool so we could relax between the drives in the bush. One drive in the morning, and one in the evening. We had a great experience and saw a lot of animals, including elephants, black and... More

Lukimbi is the place to be if you plan a trip to the Kruger. We were provided the service beyond what we expected. Have visited quite a few private camps in the Kruger and Lukimbi is absolutely the best. The staff, Sean, Shelley, Jaco, Kim, Stranger, Gloria & Lybon went out of their way in treating us to the best.... More

Staff superb. Food magnificent. To top it off - the last night of our stay we watched a lion pride take a gazelle. I... More

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner! I needed to go somewhere and do something extraordinary. Lukimbi provided that experience. Sean, our guide, is the best! He is educated and dedicated. The trackers are first rate, the staff is fantastic, the food is tremendous, the place is very clean. The owners are accommodating, flexible and generous. While very expensive, it... More
