Lukimbi Safari Lodge
If you are looking to relax and enjoy one of South Africa’s luxurious Big Five locations then Lukimbi Safari Lodge is the place to go!
Located 6 hours drive from Johannesburg or 50 minute flight from O.R. Tambo International airport to Nelspruit and about 1 hours drive transfer to the Kruger National Park.
Lukimbi Safari Lodge is a stunning luxury safari lodge situated in the easily accessible southern portion of the Kruger National Park. Kruger is home to the Big Five and a wide variety of other animals and birds, which roam freely in their natural habitat.
Game drives with informative Rangers who work closely with their Shangaan trackers, are done on their private roads in open Landrovers. You can follow the Big 5 off road in careful, controlled circumstances, an experience you don’t want to miss.
Alternatively, you can take guided walks with Rangers who clearly love the whole experience or relax in the magnificent lodge, it all happens on 15,000 hectares of exclusive use prime game and wilderness area.
The lodge features carved plaster panels showing intricate mystical creatures and African patterns, in a subtle yet extremely decorative way. The main buildings are linked together with open wooden decks, making the most of the view, as the lodge meanders along the banks of the river Lwakahle.
The designer interior combines colours and specially created pieces artistically and imaginatively. There is something different and interesting to look at round every corner. Lukimbi is a photographers’ delight, both inside the surrounds of the lodge and out in the beckoning bush.
The height of the lodge above the river provides viewing points with a feeling of safety. The raised walkways provide guests with clear and easy access to their suites.
16 spacious suites combine luxury and modern African decor with private decks and river views.
Walking into their classic suites you are struck immediately by the sense of space. The room seems to stretch into the bush beyond, and the high windows bring the sky and the trees right into the room.
The lounge drops down from the level of the bedroom area and the space flows out to the covered deck, a comfortable area to sip a drink, watch the passing animals and birds and just relax.
The bathroom is large and also looks directly onto the bush. Each suite has a spacious bath, inside and outside shower and separate toilet. All have air-conditioning, fan, safe, gauzy, romantic mosquito nets, tea and coffee facilities and a mini bar. These rooms are large enough to share with young children and still enjoy the space.
