Be blessed by the legend of Lukimbi in the Kruger National Park

In the southern Kruger National Park, on a 15,000ha private concession bounded by three major river systems, Lukimbi Safari Lodge is found on the banks of the Lwakahle River. This Big 5 reserve is home to two diverse habitats: grasslands attract herds of plains game, while the heavily wooded and lush riverine thickets provide seclusion for the more elusive wildlife. 

Let Lukimbi’s experienced rangers and Shangaan trackers enlighten you through early-morning and late-afternoon game drives and guided bush walks. Full-day walking safaris are also available on request. Elephants regularly make their way down to the river, and watching them as they cavort in the water is a soulful experience and a photographer’s dream. 

Lukimbi has 16 Luxury Suites with majestic views across the river to the bushveld and beyond. Two Suites boast their own private plunge pools and the main lodge hosts a pool, gym, spa treatment facility, wine cellar, library and bar. Stylish lounges invite you to relax in comfort while you enjoy an evening sundowner. As the lodge tells the legend of Lukimbi, so you will come to know that you are visiting a truly magical place.
