This lodge makes an exceptional base for game viewing. Over 3 nights and 6 game drives we saw plenty of Rhino, Elephant, Buffalo, Lion and 3 separate leopard sightings. The ability of these guys to go off-road in the private game reserve is essential for close up viewing of the cats. Our guide and tracker, Garth and Stranger were really... More

Our stay at Lukimbi was an absolute pleasure! The lodge is very well situated, reasonably close to the Malelane Gate into the Kruger National Park, on a large private concession. There is a large drinking hole just below the main viewing deck which drew a wide range of animals, including large herds of buffalo, elephants, and hippos fantastically close to... More

Superb setting by a river which animals visit during the day, allowing you to watch the wildlife from the comfort of your room/the common areas. Complemented by excellent rangers and trackers (Werner and KK were allocated to us, and they were amazing, making the experience what it was), rooms that are spacious and very clean (also with superb views of...

We spent five days at Lukimbi and the experience was wonderful, start to finish. We were greeted by the manager as we stepped out of our car and our bags were immediately taken to our lodge as we sat in the comfortable lounge area going over all Lukimbi had to offer while we drank a refreshing drink.

We saw so many wonderful animals up close. Each time we went out, we saw something special we hadn't seen before, like 3 tiny baby lion cubs frolicking, or a male lion eating a buffalo the female lioness had just killed. The guides were so knowledgeable and were excellent company. The kitchen staff went out of their way to please... More

Lumbiki met our every expectation and made us feel like pampered quests from the first greeting as we stepped out of our vehicle to the last goodbye.

This was our second visit and it was just as wonderful as the previous time. The Lodge is really great, the staff are excellent and the game drives are an absolute highlight. You can watch the animals from the deck or from your private patio. It's always a memorable experience and returning home feels a bit surreal. A wonderful experience!
