We stayed one night at the lodge right after our landing in Johannesburg. The lodge was incredibly beautiful and the food was very good. We especially enjoyed sitting outside while having dinner! Breakfast was good too and the beds were really comfortable. Also the owners were more than polite to us. 10/10 would recommend!

We were looking for the perfect weekend away for the whole family close to some of the country's best park destinations. We heard about Luk Africa from a friend that absolutely loved staying there. We booked for a weekend, since then we made sure that we visit Luk Africa at least 4 times a year. The staff caters for all your needs with a smile. The chalets are clean and well maintained with a awesome view. The amenities are the best for the Bush backdrop. Luke and Anita are the perfect hosts and makes you feel like part of the family.

We arrived at Lukafrika the night of my Birthday and was astounded by a Burmese feast fit for a king and a sticky hot chocolate pudding for dessert. We have stayed at Luks over the past 5 years and have never found anything wanting. Its my 2 kids my husband and I. We have received phenomenal welcomes and meals. Anita and Luk are awesome entertainers and when it comes to delivering food, you cannot ask for better. Their ommellete breakfast will have you coming back for more . Luks steak, and chips is also great. I can write the entire day about the astounding meals, accomodation, entertainment but its the service that incredible.

To keep it short and sweet, because its practically unimaginable for me to say this since I am a well outspoken person but this hidden jewel is an describable place to venture too. Here you will find luxury accommodation with above and beyond service that meets all your needs to a high level of satisfactory. The main attraction is definitely the manage/owner himself, he is the real jewel of the place and makes you not only feel right at home but as if you are family. I am so honored to have met such an extraordinary and selfless person.

The place allows for peaceful and refreshing outing due to the leafy surroundings. The staff is so welcome you feel at home from the onset.The food keeps coming. I am not a formal breakfast person but on this trip my wife was jealous🍓🥝🍵.She even plans to bring our Nanny for a 2 week Kitchen course. This place is ideal for a full night rest in a natural simple Afro round hut with a clean interior. The location is quite central to other outdoor activities I enjoyed the Canopy tour which I only 45mins away. The tour was great with lots of adrenaline pumping as you hang over the beautiful river escapedes.
