Lukimbi Safari Lodge | Southern Kruger National Park | Safari.com

Overview

Lukimbi Safari Lodge is situated in a private concession area of the southern Kruger National Park. Overlooking a dry riverbed and waterhole, this award-winning African-styled 5 star lodge offers outstanding game viewing in a spectacular wilderness setting. 

Spectacular sunsets rim the seemingly endless horizon before twinkling stars fill the black sky, and the stillness is broken only by the sounds of the wild. Unwind in this pristine setting, and experience the romance of the bushveld in sumptuous comfort.

Classic Suites feature high windows for fantastic game viewing, a well-appointed bathroom with a spacious bath, inside and outside shower that overlooks the trees and river, as well as a private deck extending from the lounge. All suites have air-conditioning, a fan, mosquito nets, tea and coffee making facilities, and a mini bar. Even with children sharing the room, you can luxuriate in the space and atmosphere.

Premier Suites are incredibly spacious, boasting a separate bedroom, dining area, large lounge, main bathroom with huge ‘shareable’ bath, an inside and outside shower, a second bathroom, and private pool with wooden deck, where elephants quite often stop by for a drink. 

The main Lukimbi Safari Lodge building welcomes you with its sweeping staircase and artistic fireplace with creatively engraved animals. The tasteful lounge overlooks the Lwakahle River where animals often come to drink, and the bar nearby has an award-winning wine list and cellar. No detail has been omitted in our unusual African boma, a favorite outside fire-lit venue. We also move our tables around in and outside our elegant restaurant and on our stunning deck, so you can enjoy different views on different days – a detail our guests often remark upon. Our library has a collection of both non-fiction and fiction available to guests as well as a computer station for their use. Other facilities include a business center, curio shop, outdoor swimming pool with connecting children's paddle pool, spa, gym, chapel, and Wi-Fi access in the main lounge area of the lodge. 

Lukimbi Safari Lodge is bounded by three major river systems, the extensive 15 000 hectare area offers a diverse array of habitats, from grasslands to wooded areas and lush riverine thickets. Enjoy morning and afternoon game drives in the impressive Big Five reserve, and appreciate the smaller creatures on exciting bush walks led by skilled rangers. The reserve is a paradise for bird watchers with 420 species to see.

A children's programme is offered to keep those young hands and minds busy and includes game drives, bushwalks, casting tracks, arts and crafts, treasure hunts, interactive sessions with rangers, special boma dinners, and kids’ dinners and picnics. Families are also welcome to utilize the Safari Play room and outdoor jungle gym.

Lukimbi Safari Lodge is ideal for solo explorers, couples and families looking for a luxurious safari experience.

Reviews


My experience at this safari lodge was above and beyond my expectations. The setting and accommodations (including food) are all excellent. I found the staff to be very attentive, highly knowledgeable and friendly. I highly recommended Lukimbi to anyone looking for a top-notch safari experience in Kruger NP.
