Our stay at Lukimbi was an absolute pleasure! The lodge is very well situated, reasonably close to the Malelane Gate into the Kruger National Park, on a large private concession. There is a large drinking hole just below the main viewing deck which drew a wide range of animals, including large herds of buffalo, elephants, and hippos fantastically close to...

Superb setting by a river which animals visit during the day, allowing you to watch the wildlife from the comfort of your room/the common areas. Complemented by excellent rangers and trackers (Werner and KK were allocated to us, and they were amazing, making the experience what it was), rooms that are spacious and very clean (also with superb views of...

We spent five days at Lukimbi and the experience was wonderful, start to finish. We were greeted by the manager as we stepped out of our car and our bags were immediately taken to our lodge as we sat in the comfortable lounge area going over all Lukimbi had to offer while we drank a refreshing drink. We were greeted...

We saw so many wonderful animals up close. Each time we went out, we saw something special we hadn't seen before, like 3 tiny baby lion cubs frolicking, or a male lion eating a buffalo the female lioness had just killed. The guides were so knowledgeable and were excellent company. The kitchen staff went out of their way to please...

Lumbiki met our every expectation and made us feel like pampered quests from the first greeting as we stepped out of our vehicle to the last goodbye. The staff makes the experience seamless in every respect. Our luggage was quietly whisked away to our lodge while we enjoyed a welcoming and refreshing fruit drink as we sat in the lovely...

This was our second visit and it was just as wonderful as the previous time. The Lodge is really great, the staff are excellent and the game drives are an absolute highlight. You can watch the animals from the deck or from your private patio. It's always a memorable experience and returning home feels a bit surreal. A wonderful experience!

We were lucky enough to have 2 nights at Lukimbi recently and were blown away with the level of service from all staff. Garth is a great game driver who found a lion kill on our first game drive. One lion and two lionesses feeding on a buffalo under a tree full of 40-50 vultures and a jackal lurking nearby....
