Where to begin with what makes the multiple-award winning Lukimbi Safari Lodge such a stand out destination? Its situation, for starters, located on a concession in the southern region of the Kruger National Park.
Not only is this one of the park’s more easily accessible areas at a mere five-hour drive from the city of Johannesburg, but it is also one of its most game-rich thanks to a breathtaking landscape encompassing three major river systems, vast grasslands, wooded habitats and lush riverine thickets.
Lukimbi is ideal with a plethora of wildlife: from white and black rhino to herds of buffalo, wildebeest and zebra to the predators that hunt them.
In fact, the not-so-distant sound of a lion’s roar is likely to be the only thing on the evening’s playlist as you drift off to sleep. Birding enthusiasts will also be a-twitter with the variety of species (over 420) that make the area their home.
At Lukimbi early morning and late afternoon game drives in open Landrovers are all part of the spectacular package.
When you’re not busy immersing yourself in nature, the welcoming communal lodge will enchant you with its contemporary African decor. It is here that you will enjoy Lukimbi’s outstanding cuisine – taken either by the pool, on one of several wooden decks, or in the boma under the stars. A bar, wine cellar, library and spa also form part of the lodge facilities.
Sixteen luxurious private suites are connected to the Lukimbi main lodge by raised wooden walkways – all are kitted out with the modern conveniences and feature their own private wooden decks taking in river views.
Whatever your reason for choosing a South African safari, you can be assured that all the elements at Lukimbi Safari Lodge have been tailored to guarantee you a five-star holiday experience.
