We spent 3 nights here with a group of 22 people and had the best time. The staff were all a pleasure to deal with and went out of their way to make sure our experience was as good as possible. They were brilliant with the kids and so accommodating. The food was fabulous, the accommodation beautiful, the sightings fantastic... More

Started my South Africa vacay with a bang! What a place! Its an absolute beauty and the sights are just breathtaking. I loved my 4 days there. They made us feel extremely comfortable and we got to see the most amazing animals. Our guides were terrific. The food was insanely delicious. Nothing to compare to the hospitality we received.

Great lodge in southern Kruger with its own koncesion. Overall high quality and solid - no real weaknesses. Rangers and trackers of high quality and working together very well as a team (app 5 vehicles in the lodge and therby in the koncession). Food of high standard and a nice wine cellar.

My wife, daughter and future son-in-law spent three days, six game rides here from June 15-18, 2016. This is our second safari having stayed at Singita Boulders in September 2015. Our four star rating is based on that comparison. Singita is analogous to staying at the Ritz Carlton and Lukimbi to a well appointed Marriott/Doubletree. But you pay a lot... More

Everything was perfect! We enjoyed everything: from staff, to the daily schedule, the meals as well, the wild animals coming to get water in front of the lodge and the spa! Cherry on the cake was the two daily safaris where we could see all animals we were looking for.

WOW.. This was one of the most memorable experience of my trip. The stay at Lukimbi surpassed all my expectations of hospitality. The reception staff (particularly Megan) greeted us in an extremely friendly manner, walking us through all the details of the stay & location. The rooms were extremely comfortable & very well maintained/cleaned. Being vegetarians we did not face... More

We had many food restrictions as we had members of all age , they made sure everyone was served what they liked. Special mention... More
