What a fabulous experience - everything about Lukimbi was awesome - the rooms, the food, the hospitality, the location, and most of all, the game drives. Our ranger Werner and tracker KK are so knowledgeable, and clearly wanted to give us an unforgettable experience. We saw the Big 5, plus lots of zebras, giraffes, and more. We loved the morning...

A wonderful lodge with stunning luxury rooms overlooking the bush. Everything about it is excellent - the food, the environment, the service and, of course, the game drives. Top class ranger and tracker able to locate the Big 5 during our one night stay. Limited vehicles means that you are never part of a convoy pursuing the wildlife.

Lukimbi exceeded our every expectation in every way. From the enchanting facility to the impeccable service, the dining to the game drives, every detail is attended to in an effort to ensure guest comfort. It truly was a slice of heaven in the bush.

During our stay we had the most amazing views just looking down from the pool. The river was still very dry when we visited in October which atracted lots of game. We absolutely loved the deck and boma, the beautifully carved fireplace, breakfast and lunch buffets and of course the excellent diners. Chalets are very well layed out, with bath,...

Reinhardt was our safari guide and he extremely knowledgeable and took the time to answer our questions and tell us all about the wildlife, plants, and insects. No need fit binoculars as the wildlife was just a few...

Cannot recommend Lukimbi enough! We booked them thru Rhino Africa, and it was truly the most wonderful experience! The staff were incredibly sweet, accommodating, and professional. From the front desk staff like Danielle to the friendly bartenders like Appollo, we were taken care of from start to finish. Our tracker, Themba, and guide, Sheldon, were experienced guides that made the...

My friend and I stayed at Lukimbi Lodge in January 2017, from the moment we arrived until the time we left, we had the most incredible stay and felt so taken care of, to the point where we hugged all of the staff goodbye. We were greeted with a warm smile and a cold cloth after our journey from the...

Very nice room with a view, excellent game drives and meals very good. We had room E 7 and we saw the animals from our verandah first. Even the bath tub offers a view. The food could not be better. We recommend, best place for Krueger.
