This was our second visit here, the first being over nine years ago, but just as fantastic! We stayed four nights, so had 8 drives. Mike was our ranger for every drive. The trackers were changed three times, so we didn't really get to know...More

I cannot express how great my experience was at Idube, I have a lifetime of memories from the 4 nights we stayed there. Highly recommended.

Idube was amazing. Enjoyed getting into the bush, no matter what the terrain is liked to see all the animals. The lodge/room was beautiful, food exceptional and the staff wonderful. A must visit!!

If you can go to both Idube and Lukimbi, they are a perfect match! It is not a luxury lodge but it is well run, has excellent rangers, a homely atmosphere and has amazing amount of Big 5.
