DESCRIPTION:
Lukimbi Safari Lodge is situated in a private concession area of the southern Kruger National Park. Overlooking a dry riverbed and waterhole, this sophisticated African-styled 5 star lodge offers outstanding game viewing in a spectacular wilderness setting. Lukimbi’s 15 000 hectares borders three river systems, ensuring a huge diversity of wildlife, including the Big Five.

Lukimbi’s one great advantage over most of the other private lodges in the greater Kruger area – its quick and simple accessibility from Johannesburg. The lodge utilise both informative rangers and Shangaan trackers who use their legendary bush skills to bring you an unforgettable wildlife experience when you go out on drives. Sightings at Lukimbi are consistently excellent.

The concession is home to a diverse array of vegetation which in turn results in an excellent concentration and variety of game - vast grasslands dominate the northern portion of the concession, whereas the southern and central areas are more heavily wooded and interspersed with lush riverine thickets. This provides ideal habitat for large herds of zebra, wildebeest and other plains animals. White rhino enjoy the numerous pans and wallows, whilst the shyer and more elusive black rhino can be found in the more thickly wooded areas. Herds of buffalo roam through grasslands seeking the succulent grasses, before moving down to the rivers to amble slowly through the reeds. Elephants can frequently be seen all over the concession and the river in front of the lodge is a favourite place for them to spend hours at a time.

Lukimbi offers 16 spacious air- conditioned suites (14 Classic Suites and 2 larger and more luxurious Premier Suites). Wooden walkways lead to the standalone rooms which are lovely thatched chalets with ample space and gorgeous river and bush views – they’re spacious enough even to sleep a couple of children with their parents (just one of the reasons why Lukimbi is great for families) The lounge drops down from the level of the bedroom area and this space then flows out to a covered wooden deck – the perfect spot to sip a drink whilst sprawled in a lounger watching the passing animals and listening to the birds in the surrounding trees!

Lukimbi enjoys one of the largest private concession areas in the Kruger and has exclusive use of over 120 kilometres of road network – this means you get fantastic access to the fantastic game for which Kruger is so famous without having to brave the traffic jams that mar the park’s public roads at just about every major Big Five sighting. Of course, you also have the advantage of being able to go off-road at confirmed Big Five sightings to get really up close and personal.
Lukimbi Safari Lodge offers full day walking trails which are unique to the lodge and the perfect way to go "bushwacking" through the veld on foot!

HIGHLIGHTS:

Lukimbi has one great advantage over most of the other private lodges in the greater Kruger area – its quick and simple accessibility from Gauteng. An easy five hour drive along the N4 from Gauteng past Nelspruit brings you to the Malelane gate into the Kruger, and from there it’s a short hop to the lodge itself. Lukimbi is blessed in having one of the prime locations in the Kruger, an extensive 15 000 hectare exclusive use concession area bounded by three major river systems including the Crocodile River which serves as the southern border of the park.

OUR TIPS:
One of the more family friendly of the top lodges – rooms easily house 2 kids plus parents whilst there are plenty of fun supervised activities including making moulds of animal’s footprints
