I am a regular customer of Lukimbi and there has not been one time that I have not enjoyed by stay. The lodge is beautiful located and very comfortable rooms and great service from the staff. The game drives are always special and the fact that you drive in the lodge concession makes it even more special as you are driving alone in the Kruger Park with professional ranger and tracker who are brilliant at their job. It is an experience you should not miss.

Lukimbi in their own concession in the southern part of Kruger Park is a perfect place to stay to stay if you for instance want to stay in a luxury lodge inside Kruger. The rooms are very big with beautiful view, the service is in top and the food is first class. We were here during Covid 19 and liked the way management took all precautions.

Could not have asked for a better safari experience - the game drives, meals and rooms at Lukimbi were excellent and far exceeded expectations. The rangers and trackers were very knowledgeable and their love and enthusiasm for the bush was infectious. The meals - in both taste and presentation- were of top quality and like fine dining in Johannesburg. The staff were warm and friendly, and their level of professionalism and service orientation was exceptional. It was clear that everything had been well thought out and organized, as there was no unnecessary waiting for any service. All Covid related safety protocols were carefully followed which also helped to put guests at ease and enjoy.

Excellent bush guides and trackers with exemplary knowledge on flora and fauna. Service staff were also very attentive. But there was a sense of boredom and carelessness from management since the advent of Covid. Food was (perhaps to some degree because of Covid) not of the usual high standard so we felt a little cheated of what we felt would be value for money.

This was our second visit to the Lukimbi Safari Lodge and again it was just perfect. Sean and Shelley gave us a warm welcome, Phillip was an excellent ranger, Thomas was a tracker with wondereyes and the staff took fantastic care of us (“the queen and the grandfather” as they called us jokingly), in particular paid attention to my wife (77 years of age) who had been injured after an accident at home. And I should specifically also mention the cook who prepared excellent meals. It is a pity that due to the Covid situation the oocupancy had been low, although it appeared to be picking up again. Of course, apart from all the hospitality, the main reason to visit the lodge are the animals and we got a fair share of special encounters. I mention two: a group of five southern ground hornbills which we got to observe from very nearby and an unique fight between the wild dogs and the hyenas which were trailing them. Lot of action and noise. We only missed the lions but I found the wild dog- hyena encounter much more interesting than a sleepy lion. In summary, a perfect stay with an excellent price/quality relationship.
