I've stayed in many hundreds of hotels, and this is probably the best one I've ever experienced. The rooms are clean, spacious, well designed and offer incredible views out over the park (wandering elephants etc). The game drives are fantastic, with very knowledgeable guides and trackers who entertain and inform in equal measure. The food was delicious. And the service...

It was really great to stay in this nice place for a couple of nights. We enjoyed the spectacular views from our lodge and the game drives. This was our first time in South Africa andand it felt like a treat.

This was our first experience with a safari lodge and the research suggested that all are pretty much rated 5 stars so in addition to the reviews we looked at what the lodge promoted on their website. Lukimbi delivered everything that they and the reviews promised. It was an outstanding experience from the rooms to the game drives to the...

Excellent accommodations nestled in the middle of the African bush. Great safari guides and trackers, great service and food all with a smile, and an experience I will never forget. Also offered were late morning walking safaris, fantastic massages and facials, and a bar that served whatever you heart desired.

Having had the benefit and pleasure of a South African safari holiday in the Eastern Cape last year, we couldn’t resist the idea of more game drives this year. But to ring the changes we chose Kruger, and thanks to our amazing Travel Counsellor, Lukimbi was the chosen game reserve. What a simply fabulous choice, because all we are thinking...

My husband and I spent five wonderful days at Lukimbi in early February. The staff was marvelous and incredibly attentive. We were privileged to have James and Matt as our guides and Golden as our tracker. We were out on safari every morning and afternoon and took advantage of the bush walks offered after breakfast. During one of our morning...

Visiting South Africa was definitely one of the best trips of my life and Lukimbi played a major part in making this vacation a lifetime experience. Matt, our ranger and guide, was knowledgeable and very funny. The food was AMAZING and the rooms were huge and beautifully decorated. We were greeted every morning with a pack of impalas walking by...

This lodge is simply wonderful. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff, great animal sitings, great accommodations and food. Best of all, wonderful place for kids. Our 9 and 11 year olds had the time of their lives. The lodge had special kids program and they saw and learned a lot and will never forget it.
