Our 5 nights at Lukimbi Safari Lodge in January, 2016 was beyond wonderful. The lodge offered rustic comfort and luxury in accommodations, meals and common areas, and spellbinding safari experiences twice a day.

Shane and Mike our guide and tracker saw to it that we enjoyed multiple safaris, each one unique and amazing. Learning, watching and discovering were all made fun and exciting by their knowledge and Shane's humor. The luxury suite was spacious. Our teen had her own bathroom. We were beyond amazed when elephants quietly sauntered over just beyond our private...

We stayed at Lukimbi for 4 nights - the last stop on a 2 week honeymoon trip. It was just incredible! On arrival, you are greeted with moist towels and a beverage and escorted to the main lodge for check in on comfy sofas.

Our stay at Lukimbi was the highlight of our trip. The place is awesome, you have buffaloes, hippos and elephants just a couple of meters away from the pool. The lodges are beautiful and well-equipped. The staff was excellent, especially our ranger (Kim) and Spotter (Strange) who showed us a lot of animals. The best experience was the 2 leopards...
