From the moment we arrived, till we left, the staff at Lukimbi treated us more like family than guests. They were warm and welcoming and attended to our requests with a smile and in an efficient manner. The rooms were spectacular, with the bath facing the river and the bush being the best feature for me. I was able to... More

From the very first moment you feel the great care of the whole team. Service is incredible, organization is superb, the whole lodge is amazing. Usually I'm able to find a flaw in anything but Lukimbi left me speechless. Everything was perfect to final detail.

This stunning and beautiful safari lodge is located in a large private concession within Kruger National Park. It's very exclusive and private with only 16 all suite lodges. The service is excellent and everyone's warm and friendly.

Well, It all began as Ken Graham greeted us at the airport and drove us to the Lodge. Charming and informative was the entire route. He also took us back as we left. The manager, Sean Smith and his wife greeted us as we arrived and introduced us to our Ranger, Werner and other people working at the Lodge. Without... More

I would give this lodge 6 stars if possible. Individual cabins were a real treat. Beds very comfortable and being able to view wild animals at any time of day was amazing. Our safari guide, Reinhardt, and tracker, Niko, were both excellent and made efforts to make sure we could see as much as possible. Food was excellent!!
