We spent 2 days at Idube and 2 days at Lukimbi. Both lodges are fantastic. Idube has the best game view and Lukimbi the best location for elephants and rhinos and because of the close river also for hippos and crocos!
In Idube we saw the big 5 during our first 2 drives. Ranger Andreis and tracker "Eagle-eye"-Titus didn't miss anything. From the leopard onto a tree, the lioness which had hunted an Impala for her two babies (Titus saw the las 10 cm of the lioness tail in the same colored high grass...thats why i call him Eagle-eye) and the 100 big buffel-herd....we did not miss anything!
Meals were in both lodges from a very high quality (my personal opinion as a chef myself). The teams were very kind and professional. We had the chance to meet the very charming owners of the lodges.
I suggest to stay first 2 nights at Lukimbi and then move to Idube!
Our stay at Idube (and after at Lukimbi) was definitively one of the most impressive we ever had! I only can reccomend these locations for everyone who wants an amazing experience!
