Our stay at Lukimbi was the highlight of our trip. The place is awesome, you have buffaloes, hippos and elephants just a couple of meters away from the pool. The lodges are beautiful and well-equipped. The staff was excellent, especially our ranger (Kim) and Spotter (Strange) who showed us a lot of animals. The best experience was the 2 leopards...

We stayed at Lukimbi for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon and loved it! The lodge is absolutely gorgeous - the rooms are huge with high ceilings and its own private deck. If you pay more for the premiere suites, you also get a private pool, more space and a 2nd bathroom but I personally didn't find that even...

We spent 3 nights at Lukimbi lodge in our own private villa overlooking the river and wildlife. Zane guided us during 21! hours of exciting game driving where we spotted lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino, elephant, hyena, giraff, zebra and much more. We also did 2 very interesting bush walks where we saw hippo and rhino up close. Excellent breakfast, lunch...

Great experience at Kruger Park. Lukimbi Safari Lodge as a great location and the service is awesome. The rooms are huge, great for rest and huge privacy whenever you do not intend to be among other guests. Employees are always present and available, they are very discrete so they will not bother you. I got the impression that Rangers avoid...

Much have already been said. I will not review the Krüger and all the fantastic nature and animals there, even that's a huge part of staying at Lukimbi. It is however important to understand that Lukimbi have a private concession which is a big difference to lodges that don't. We met all the rangers and some of the trackers that...

I would highly recommend the Lukimbi Safari Lodge. The rooms very spacious, clean and well equipped. The Lodge had an amazing restaurant and the eggs benedict is clearly the piece de-resistance and look out for Gloria from the restaurant, great service. We had two game drives each day and we had Thomas as our trekker and Craig as our guide....

This was our second visit (with friends - see George J review for more detail). The lodge is great in every way - staff, service, accommodation, food - and, of course, the game drives. Guide (Craig) and tracker (Thomas) were superb, and with their help and skill we had the best game drives we've ever experienced. It was especially exciting...

This lodge is absolutely superb, it is built around a waterhole which attracts a fair amount of game and the rooms look out over the waterhole and the bush, all are large and very private. The service and cuisine are absolutely excellent, we stayed for three nights and had some of the best meals on our holiday. There is also...
