This facility was the end, and high point, of a tour of Southern Africa. It consists of several small "tents", which are really very luxurious cabins, centered around a river watering hole. There are 3 safaris a day-two by vehicle and one walking. The animal watching was awesome-saw everything on the list, as though it was produced on command-the drivers... More

Lukimbi Lodge was the perfect resting place in Kruger National Park. The guides and trackers were top notch and the entire staff made us feel like special "guests", not just tourists. I had no expectations going into this trip, but left with an incredible sense of connection to the land and to the people who help to run this fantastic... More

We love Africa and visit often, on this trip we decided to 'DO' the whole Kruger National Park so entering at Crocodile Bridge we spent two weeks zig zaging our way all the way to the top. A fantastic journey of contrasts. So to finish the trip we took three nights here and were indulged with the finest accommodations, fabulous... More

Located in the heart of Kruger National Park, this is a spectacular property: the rooms are very generously designed, with plenty of (useable) space, comfortable beds, and an overall first-rate lay-out. The food is excellent, and the staff extraordinarily friendly and anxious to please. The ranger and driver who took our small group (7 people) on daily safaris were fabulous;... More

I'm so glad we went back!! We spent 3 nights at Lukimbi exactly a year ago and were extremely impressed with everything. Sometimes, when you return to a place of happy experiences, it isn't quite as memorable the second time around but Lukimbi has thrilled us once again in September. Sean and Shelley are such friendly managers. From the minute... More

But the highlight for us all were the staff at this fantastic lodge.... More
