The most perfect setting you could imagine for tons of sightings of the "Big 5". This lodge was a fantastic expierence from being greeted on our arrival with a cool cloth to refresh ourselves...things only got better from then on. The accommodation was stunning, looking out onto the plain and a close river. Couldn't fault anything of this place it... More

The staff a Lukimbi are like a big lovely family, and as soon as we arrived they made us part of their family. The scenery, accommodation, food,service is the best you could ask for. Each day at lunch time the local herd of elephants would come to the watering hole for a cool down and we could sit at the... More

What an amazing place - we couldn't fault it. Absolute luxury. Private concession with only 4 vehicles that can even go off-road. Very knowledgeable guides. Superb food. Rooms overlook river with elephants and hippos arriving each day. Staff were fantastic.

This trip was a dream come true for me and my biology teaching father. I was impressed that our field guide was willing to answer my dad's endless scientific questions. The field guide went above and beyond for us. We spotted the big 5 in one game drive and then proceeded to look for more diverse species. We spent the... More

Its the attention to detail that makes a lodge truly special. From the welcoming committee, the warm towels, the fact that Chef had extended lunch service in case we were hungry (we checked in at 3pm), the children's personalised activity packs and the stunning location; everything was just right. Our room (4E) had been fitted out with an elephant child's... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and we both agreed it is the best place we have ever stayed everything was superb. The food was exceptional and all the staff were friendly and welcoming. We saw the big 5 in one drive and we were very impressed with the knowledge of the guides and Sean (our guide) was friendly, hospitable and... More

We have traveled all over the world, stayed in fabulous hotels...but THIS is the nicest place we have ever stayed! The accommodations are absolutely glorious and the setting is resplendent with animal viewings...watching elephants play in the river during lunch, watching g porcupines stroll by before dinner. In between the game drives, we enjoyed the peace and serenity. And the... More

We recently visited Lukimbi for 3 nights. The rooms are large and spacious and all face onto the river ensuring privacy and great game viewing from your room and private deck. We virtually had elephants permanently outside our room. The lodge offers a bush walk after the morning drive which is a nice extra. The staff were friendly and attentive... More

We were a family of 7 and stayed at Lukimbi on the 9th July. Our big mistake was to only stay one night. Great facilities, fantastic service, unbelievable food, and mind boggling game viewing. Our guide Chris and tracker KK were faultless, friendly, extremely informative and adjusted the standard agenda to fit our specific requirements e.g. one of our party... More
