What a little piece of paradise. Run by the incredibly friendly Luk and Anita, the position on the Great Letaba River is incredible. We stayed in the last chalet, which has a huge deck overlooking the river and we fell asleep to the sound of the hippos grunting below. The room is big and airy and spotlessly clean, as was...

Lukafrika is a unique place with very friendly and helpful hosts and perfect food in a very nice and tasteful park-like surrounding. If you are in the neighborhood, go there and see yourself! Especially if you are a nature fan, Luke is able to tell you everything about South Africa's flora and fauna.

Our main viewing deck overlooking the Great Letaba river is a favourite amongst our guests and great sightings of hippo, crocodile, vervet monkey and a wide variety of birds can be seen. Listen to the call of the fisheagle whilst a full farmhouse breakfast is served on the deck daily. Special dinners on the deck can be booked. Our swimming pool area set amongst plush well manicured gardens surrounded by bushveld and large trees is exclusive to our guests ensuring total privacy.
