Our visit to Lukimbi was the highlight of a trip of a lifetime! We were dazzled at every turn-- and everyone on the staff treated us like royalty. Lukimbi for us was paradise found!Dylan and Stranger were the safari dream team! Dylan's scientific background and communication skills added true depth of knowledge to the amazing bush experience. And Stranger's boots-on-the-ground expertise-- finding every animal imaginable-- made it all real. Not only is each one exceptional, but their team dynamic-- how they work together-- created a positive atmosphere that maximized our learning and our fun! Yes, we saw four of the "big five", but so much more-- giraffes, zebras, owls, chameleons, kudu, gorgeous migratory birds, we even came face-to-face with nursing lion cubs. The warm smiles of the staff made us feel more like family than hotel guests, and when we think of Lukimbi, we will always be reminded of their extraordinary kindness. The accommodations were beautiful and comfortable-- love that oval granite bathtub and the outdoor shower! Felt like a queen in the canopy bed with mosquito netting! When our 10-year old saw monkeys from the bathroom window, he really thought he had died and gone to heaven! And the food...I don't think we've ever eaten so well, and certainly not in such a fabulous setting! The staff created a special setting for us at each meal, including dinner on the terrace over the game reserve, surrounded by oil lamps and the roar of lions!!! We loved the local menu-- exotic fruits, just-picked veggies, and especially the game and fish. Who knew that we would be eating eland, and that it would immediately become our favorite meat (more tender than fillet mignon)! We are all so eager to return!
