Thanks again for a wonderful weekend of the 30th October. We visit Lukafrica for our 40th wedding anniversary and it was super nice. Luke and Anita are the most hospitable people and made our stay very special. Thanks again for a lovely weekend, we'll never forget it.

We stayed in the last chalet, which has a huge deck overlooking the river and we fell asleep to the sound of the hippos grunting below. The room is big and airy and spotlessly clean, as was...

Lukafrika is a unique place with very friendly and helpful hosts and perfect food in a very nice and tasteful park-like surrounding. If you are in the neighborhood, go there and see yourself! Especially if you are a nature fan, Luke is able to tell you everything about South Africa's flora and fauna.

We traveled to South Africa from the USA in January and spent two nights at Lukafrica between our time in Pretoria and heading into Kruger Park. Our only regret is that we stayed just 2 nights here and weren't ready to leave. The location itself is spectacular and very well maintained. The views of the river are amazing, the pool...

Lukafrica is situated about 60 km from Tzaneen in Giyani and i have made this my accommodation of choice as it offers breath taking "bush" Lodge experience with a variety of chalets along the river bank that has the occasional croc or hippo traveling along the river.

Luke and Anita are wonderful hosts. All our needs were taken care of. Even cold beers delivered to the shady and tranquil pool. Meals were excellent. Dinner was a 3 course meal served in the boma. Breakfast was served on the verandah overlooking the river which also included fresh fruit and juice.
