This time we upgraded to the lodges with pools and enjoyed 4 amazing game drives ( Chris KK & Golden giving us 5 star game experiences ) and a relaxed time enjoying the facilities during the day . Empress Gloria & Brighton made all our meal times enjoyable and...

We recently spent 3 nights at Lukimbi Lodge and loved every minute of it. The rooms are extremely spacious and the outside shower was exactly what was needed after a long but exciting game drive. The rooms are immaculate and always beautifully turned down for you every night. The main reception area of the lodge is large enough to accommodate...

The Lodge facilities are excellent, very roomy, clean with fabulous views. The staff are outstanding in terms of their friendliness, support and overall willingness to make sure you have the best time. The food was excellent. The game drives were totally absorbing and thanks to the brilliant rangers and trackers, you don't just see animals, you experience them. We saw...

Beautiful setting, lovely rooms, helpful staff. Surprisingly good food, especially the buffet lunches. Dinner in the Boma was the highlight - brilliant. Ranger and tracker worked hard to find game - but I have marked it down as game was too sparse which was disappointing.We saw a lot of elephants, which came right down to the river in front of...

Spent only 2 nights, but saw many different species of mammals, birds, and plants. Our ranger, Zane, and tracker, Absalom, were fantastic. They showed us as a large variety of animals, were very informative, and made safety and comfort the #1 priority. Saw many of the 4 of the big 5 (didn't see leopards), and scouted out a site where...

This lodge is a little treat to yourself, I felt I was on a honeymoon :) The great thing of this place is the private area they have in Kruger, they leased a good amount of land in Kruger where only this lodge has access to, therefore the safari's are private and no other visitors may enter this area.

Our family group stayed at Lukimbi Safari Lodge for 3 nights in late June. We were two couples and one 6-year-old. We stayed in the the lodge's two Premier Suites. We enjoyed the lodge itself. I wouldn’t say it was 5-star (it’s not on par with the Four Seasons in Tanzania, for example), but it was attractive and comfortable. Solid...

The staff a Lukimbi are like a big lovely family, and as soon as we arrived they made us part of their family. The scenery, accommodation, food,service is the best you could ask for. Each day at lunch time the local herd of elephants would come to the watering hole for a cool down and we could sit at the...

What an amazing place - we couldn't fault it. Absolute luxury. Private concession with only 4 vehicles that can even go off-road. Very knowledgeable guides. Superb food. Rooms overlook river with elephants and hippos arriving each day. Staff were fantastic.
