Our guide, Werner, was really passionate about what he does, and worked hard to make the whole experience memorable. The lodge is beautiful, but it's really the safari portion that makes or breaks a stay. I've done safaris at several different places, and Lukimbi has been my favorite thus far. The rooms are all lovely, and elephants come up to...

We booked for a three night stay at Lukimbi Lodge. From a rocky start (ours, not theirs, as we missed our flight to Kruger and therefore the transfer), they were not phased by anything and managed to get us to the resort before the gates closed. We were welcomed, made to feel part of the safari family. Food and beverages...

My wife and i have just left Lukimbi yesterday after a fantastic stay as part of our 30th wedding anniversary holiday in the Kruger park area. Lukimbi has definitely been the highlight of the holiday with a wonderful experience with a Leopard in tree seemingly "posing" for photos at the end of our last evening Safari drive. Shane was our...

I'm no fan of zoos- they bore me- so I had a little trepidation when we decided to go on "safari". Who knew I would have so much fun and staying at the Lukimbi was a big part of it. First our guide, James, was beyond superb. I'm sure their other guides were good, but James consistently knew where to...

This Hotel as the charm of a 5 stars hotel. The rooms are simple superb. With the giant marble tub, the balcony and the outside shower. The staff is very professional and there is a warm feeling every time you arrive to the hotel. The guides are just the best and they mingle with the guest as if you were...

My family (6 people) went to Lukimbi for Christmas in 2016. I just can't even express how amazing the trip was! To start, for the safari, it was excellent we saw everything!!

16 individual chalets looking out onto watering holes with great vista of animals passing by. Chalets are spacious and beds extremely comfy. 2x 3 hour safaris each day: at 5.30am with breakfast after and at 4pm with dinner following. Lunch is at 2pm. We normally had 6 people in our Land Rover and were assigned Reinhardt as our ranger and...

All in all it's a ver nice place. Location is beautiful, view is perfect and rooms are lovely. Safaris and walks (the main reasons for the trip) could have been better. Especially when you compare it to other places in SA. Felt a bit rushed, too planned. E.g. sundowners must happen at a specific spot regardless of whether there's something...
