We spent 2 nights at Lukimbi Lodge and our only regret was that we didn't plan to stay longer. Everyone who worked here could not do enough for us, from the group that met us upon arrival, to the servers, cleaning staff, guides and trackers. We were treated like royalty and it was obvious that all the staff there wanted...

Our driver/ranger Werner was excellent, his knowledge was astounding, also a very likeable young man. Our tracker KK was also brilliant. Lodge staff were welcoming, helpful and very friendly. Could not see the point of the plunge pool, for us totally...

A wonderful place. Game drives with very experienced knowledgable guides. We saw the big 5 and so much more ! Accommodation was great, with animals quite often visable from the balconies. The food was exceptional, with nothing too much trouble for the lovely staff. Highly recommend a massage at the spa.... very relaxing !

3 day safari Dec 16-18, 2015. 3 drives with outstanding driver and spotter, saw all Big 5 and found a leopard. Lodge was beautiful and our suite was magnificent. Hedge hogs in the front yard, hippo in the side yard stream, herd of elephants drinking from our private pool. Excellent food and gracious staff. Highly recommended.

This was the most amazing place with the most amazing people. The guides and staff are the best I have found. Zane and Absolom provided so much information. They joined us in the bar after the game drives and chatted about everything. We were made to feel special but also like one of the family. I can not say enough...
