This was our 3rd visit to Lukimbi, it is an amazing place with such friendly and knowledgeable staff. This is a place you really need to experience, it hard to tell you how amazing they are. You turn up and have a lovely greeting, shown the water hole, next to the bar where animals visit regularly all through the day. Elephants drink from the pool while you relax in it. The resident hippo is almost always on view. The safari drives are guided by such knowledgeable trackers and guides. I do have to add Stranger is the best tracker they have, he has such a sharpe eye and a ability to find the animals that like to hide. The resident leopard over the years has become relaxed around the safari jeeps meaning you get fantastic viewing and photo opportunities of such an amazing and stunning animal. The food and service here is amazing, they treat you like you are part of the family and make you so welcome. Lyborn the bar manager is such a cheeky friendly gentleman you have to love him. He will teach you a few things about unusual drinks, lol. Trying the outside shower is a must and the toilet with a view can be amusing when you have the monkeys watching why you visit. You have to love this place. It is so peaceful, romantic, exciting and enjoyable.

Notre 1 er Lodge en arrivant au Park Kruger, nous y sommes restés 2 nuits ! Les animaux et Safari étaient top . Un point d’eau devant le lodge permet de voir des animaux la journée quand on est pas en safari. c’est Magique de déjeuner avec vu sur les éléphants, Impalas ... Le personnel est exceptionnel, notre lodge sublime avec douche extérieur et Piscine vu sur la Savane très calme. La cuisine super bonne .

lukimbi lodge.. first time in a game lodge for us..we flew into skukuza air port then a 2 hour drive to the lodge..driver was very good..we saw animals all the way in..then the lodge..the welcome was wonderfull,staff out to great us with cool towel and a drink, then a breifing on the lodge and the rules will staying there..they are very safety concouise ,, we were escorted from our room after dark by staff and on return.. our ranger and tracker were sheldon and michael,both terrific at their jobs,full of knowledge and good humor.. they work very hard to make sure you see the animals you are looking for.. now to the dining..we were served a continental breakfast at the start of a drive.. when we returned there was a full breakfast to warm us up.. lunch was then on at 1.30pm.after this we were free to enjoy the bar or wander around.. .3.30 we left for the evening drive, including a sun downer at sunset...then back to the lodge,7.30pm dinner and drinks..drinks included.. the overall feeling about this lodge was relaxing and then full on, we would recommend this lodge to people who want to relax with good people..

My Husband I stayed at Lukimbi Lodge March 5-8 2018 and had an incredible experience. Our Ranger Malcolm and the our tracker Golden were fantastic . They did everything possible to make our safari drives exciting . Their knowledge of the animals and the area was impressive . The rooms and lodge were great, the food was good but not really up to the standard of the overall lodge. We would recommend Lukimbi if you want a great Safari experience.

It was a long journey to Lukimbi, from UK to Johannesburg and then fly to Nelspruit then self drive to Lukimbi, as soon as I arrived I was treated to refreshing towels and a complimentary drink. Paying around £700 a night I was expecting to enjoy an experience and a half. The safari and lodge are simply mindblowing, amazing food and very attentive staff. The safari in south Kruger is exceptional we saw the big 5 in 2 days and our Ranger James was very good. Bad things are the management of the lodge, upon checking out I was expecting a small bill for the alcohol consumed at the bar. But NOOOO they charge you for EVERY DRINK yes even a bottle of WATER!! This is blatantly ripping off all the tourists for extra cash, very poor idea to do this and no one even mentions the pricing off anything. So MANAGEMENT who are reading this should make this very fair on tourists and provide a menu with the costs so we know what we are paying for, otherwise impossible to budget.\ Apart from this a solid 4 stars!
