Greeting us with cool damp wash cloths and lemonade. Although we were late to arrive, lunch was still waiting for us and after lunch we set off for the evening... More

Lukimbi staff made our first safari experience outstanding. It was also our birthday and anniversary during the stay and it was made so memorable with a romantic meal, special touches in our chalet etc. Meals were excellent and adapted to my dietary requirements. Nothing was trouble from the barman, rangers / trackers and front of house staff everyone was attentive.... More

We spent three nights at Lukimbi in April 2013 (apologies for the late review). This lodge is pure luxury bang in the middle of the jungle. It was about an hour and a half drive from the airport - the last half hour of which was spent after entering the national reserve watching wild animals all around us. The rooms... More

We spent our initial week in Cape Town and then the last week in Kruger with 4 days split between Idube and Lukimbi. First off, I think the... More

It was a real treat to stay at the Lukimbi safari lodge. The lodge is set in its own private area of the Kruger where we saw a fantastic variety of animals. The rangers and trackers are very knowledgeable and very friendly as are all the staff at the lodge who go out of their way to make your stay... More

We stayed at Likimbi lodge for 4 nights for our honeymoon. On arrival we were greeted by Sean who informed us of Likmbi's facilities and offered us a much needed drink. Then we were shown to our Premier suite, which was pure luxury and over looked the river. It had a huge living area, bedroom, bathroom, including outdoor shower, and... More
