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

On our first safari drive, only 500 meters from the lodge, our excellent tracker "KK" spottet three leopards in a tree - on the same branch, the mother with two youngsters, one female one male, 8 months old. Our fenomenal and knowledgeable ranger Chris managed to move the vehicle into a perfect position. We studied them for at least one... More

Came here for our honeymoon in December 2014. This is a fantastic property. The rooms are beautiful and the food is excellent. Rangers and trackers were friendly and knowledgeable and we saw plenty of animals including the Big Five. You are definitely not "roughing it" at Lukimbi but we really enjoyed having the excellent amenities to come back to at... More

My husband and I arrived at Lukimbi just before Christmas - we had no idea what to expect as we had never been on safari before. I was a bit concerned it might be a bit rustic - I was wrong! It is wonderful. Our lodge was at the end of the walkway and it was amazing. We had an... More

Brighton was fantastic and really went out of his way to make this a special surprise for my sister-in-law. Shelley organised everything for... More

A trip was arranged by friends for us to stay in a lodge in the Kruger National Park. I really didn't quite know what to expect and was absolutely amazed by the Lukimbi Safari Lodge. The whole setting was unique to me and nothing like I had ever experienced previously. Our accommodation was excellent and very spacious with a beautiful... More

My partner and I stayed at this lodge for 2 nights as part of a special birthday trip to Kruger. The staff were outstanding and made my birthday a very special treat.

This was the most amazing experience. Lukimbi was beautiful and the staff were fantastic. We had Craig and Thomas as our guide and tracker. They were both so hospitable, funny, knowledgable and accommodating. We really did have the best time. The rooms are beautiful, the grounds are devine. The food was fantastic. I would go back in a heart beat,... More

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
