Initially greeted by Sean and Danielle with a wet wash cloth...perfect after traveling. Staying at Lukimbi Lodge is an incredible experience. The staff is fantastic! Everyone is so helpful and kind. Ranger Zane and Tracker Dumi were a great team. They worked hard so that you could see as many animals/birds as possible (such as elephants, giraffes, lions with cubs,...

Love my luxury cabin. Staffs are friendly and helpful from manager to service staffs. Food is good and you are not 'pressurize' to order alcoholic liquor. Less then 20 cabins so its very safe as the ranger will escort you from room to dining area. You can watch hippo & buffalos at waterhole outside from your room or during breakfast/lunch...

super food, also for vegetarians, very nice people, beautiful accommodations, lot of animals to see, absolutely safe but still an adventure! So it is possible to hear lions during night. You sleep very well and absolutely safe, the houses are absolutely robust and close against mosquitos. The game drives are brilliant and include lots of facts to learn. Don't miss...

We have just had 3 wonderful days at Lukimbi. Didn't want to leave. The food was exceptional. Staff from the top to the bottom were helpful and happy. Nothing was to much for them. From our room we spent hours watching elephants and hippo in the waterhole outside. At times the herd were only 10 feet below us. We did...

My wife and I stayed for two days in September. Brilliant game drives and a game walk. Our Ranger Werner and Tracker KK couldn't do enough to make sure we had a great time. Elephants, giraffe, buffalo, lions (and cubs), rhino, hippo, crocodile, cheetah and even wild dogs - we had a fantastic time. Can't wait to go back. Facilities...

Lukimbi was delightful. We sat watching herds of Elephant drink water for hours, right from the plunge pool a couple of metres away. It was an absolute delight. You didn't need to go on a game drive as everything was at your finger tips. From Elephants to Hippo, antelope and of course the warthogs.

The place is very weoll rum, the food is good, drinks are not expensive and the Mangager Sean is amazingly attentive to every detail. Congratulations for giving us a fantastic bush experience!

Wonderful lodge with excellent accommodations. The lodge and rooms all overlook a watering hole so you can see most of the animals from your room! Very thoughtful in the way it is laid out.
