From the moment we arrived, this was a memorable experience. We were asked our food preferences for the next day and my wife asked about a menu. Staff responded: "just tell us what you want". Wow. No: WOW! We went out for night rides to see animals and saw amazing herds of wildebeest. At dawn, we interrupted the search to...

A beautifull experience - from safari (including amazing bush walks) to eating experience. Staff were friendly and open to our requests. The only minus is the speed of WIFI - but one can survive without that. We saw all sort of animals passing by the window - and that was ..wow

We can't rave enough on how much we enjoyed our stay at Lukimbi - we stayed 5 nights and could have easily stayed longer. I know there are more expensive lodges in Kruger but I can't imagine what else you could get as Lukimbi provides everything - great African wildlife experience, superb food, great accommodation and fantastic service and people....

We had an amazing stay at the lodge. The staff were incredible from the crew at reception to the chefs and ranger/trackers. The lodge is kid friendly as well. Photos online do not do this lodge justice, the rooms were lovely and the lobby & eating areas were so inviting and relaxing to be at. The views from the rooms...

What an experience! The lodge is fabulous. It is the perfect blend of all the amenities that one could want with an African casual theme. The staff are so dedicated and helpful. Our tracker KK and guide Verner ensured that we saw all of the Big 5. We had to wait many times along the small bush roads for hypos,...

The team at Lukimbi are dedicated to making sure you have the best experience possible. Grounds, accommodation and food are first class and the tracker and ranger you are provided ensure the best possible chances of viewing the big five.
