We stayed at Lukimbi in November and had booked for 2 nights. We enjoyed it so much we arranged another night with my brother and his wife as we wanted to share this special place with them. 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. The standard of the suites is excellent with the bath having an open view of the river below. Food was well presented and tasty with a boma braai... More

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

I wanted to take my wife away for a weekend and saw lukimbi on the sanparks website. It was a great experience. The ranger Craig had great knowledge of the animals on our drives. The siute we stayed in had a pool over looking the river and was awesome to cool down in. I recommend this lodge for a great... More

LUKIMBI LODGE Beautiful bush camp setting and friendly staff with very good game rangers. Food excellent and service good. Rooms are beautifully appointed with excellent views over riverbed. Only negative is distance from Kruger airport which is about 2 1/2 hours. Highly recommend this lodge.

My husband and I finished our South African honeymoon at Lukimbi and we definitely saved the best for last. The lodge was absolutely beautiful, wonderful decor, perfect setting on the water with an infinity pool, spacious, and luxurious. The food was plentiful and delicious and ever changing. Our hut was gorgeous. The staff surprised us with a romantic dinner for... More

Where to start....the setting is amazing, the accommodation is pure luxury and the food healthy and great. In general the attitude of the staff was second to none and their attitude to our ('energetic') kids was brilliant. We had the good fortune of having Ranger Chris and Tracker James assigned to us for the duration of our stay and our... More
