We were at the lodge in the middle of April and enjoyed a wonderful stay. Having been at various other private lodges within Kruger Park we are able to compare and are of the opinion that Lukimbi is highly recommendable. The quality/price ratio puts this place amongst the top ones of Krugers luxury lodges. Spacious rooms, excellent service, firendly and... More

We stayed here in late January and were hooked. The staff were fantastic, the rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. The food was delicious - we liked the buffet lunch concept as it perfectly suited our eating style (don't overdo it at lunch because supper is a big meal!). We were very fortunate on our game drives. The wildlife cooperated... More

This private game lodge in Kruger National Park has it all: Spacious and first class accommodations, good quality food and libations and the reason to be here in the first place: wild life from dung beetle to lion. Sean and Shelley and their team strive to make your safari a memorable experience. Despite the rainy season and the bush lusciously... More

As a travel agent I can only give the highest rating to this property, after researching 45 game lodges this one came up trumps! Departing Johannesburg to Nelspruit Airport for a 2 hour transfer journey I am bound for Lukimbi Safari Lodge. The Kruger National Park is South Africa’s premier wildlife destination, covering 19,485 square kilometres. It is one of... More

We were 3 couples visiting SA from the US. We stayed at Lukimbi as part of our trip. We were thrilled with the experience. Driving up to the entrance we encountered a herd of Elephants on the road. As soon as we arrived and looked out beyond the open deck, there was a single elephant. Amazing way to start. The... More

Most exquisite lodging and staff you can dream of. The game watching was natural - phenomenal and naturally intimate. Sean and his staff's respect for nature made this the highlight of our 20 days in Africa. Nothing could be better.

We had three fantastic nights at Lukimbi Safari Lodge. We have seen a lot of good places around the world and it's always the same difference that makes the difference - The people. Excellent service, very knowledgeable rangers and trackers, great private lodges and excellent food. Our ranger Andrew and the tracker James gave us some great and wild experiences.... More

I cannot in good faith call our space anything but a suite...room does not do it justice. It was spacious, clean with huge windows that game us views of the wildlife. Definite WOW factor there. The meals were good with good options. I especially loved a lunch they did with all sorts of vegetables, calamari and salads. After being at... More

I stayed at Lukimbi in November 2013 for 4 nights and was impressed with every aspect of the experience. Lukimbi offers it's guests 2 games drives each day. One at 5:30am and the other in the late afternoon. On top of this they also offer a mid morning game walk. The game drives were superb and provided me with an... More

I had a delightful stay at Lukimbi earlier this month. The setting of the lodge in the hilly southern part of Kruger is absolutely stunning. My guide Steff was really informative and has a very nice way abiut himself, and our tracker Stranger had great senses for find the animals. The service was always very friendly and personal and I...
