Lukimbi Safari Lodge is one of only 7 private concessions in the Kruger National Park, South Africa. Experience a unique private safari in this vast protected reserve where the Big Five and a wide variety of other animals and birds roam free in their natural habitat.
We chose the location of Lukimbi Safari Lodge very carefully, for it was critical that the extraordinary magic of the reserve was fully appreciated whether out in the bush on safari or from the sanctuary of the lodge itself. When we came upon a clearing under a cluster of ancient trees in front of a naturally fed spring, with the most beautiful view along the bank of the Lwakahle River, we knew we had found home. Whether on your own private deck, at the pool, at the bar or in the dining room, the animals are never far…
Big Five Private Safari
Your own private safari experience within one of the planet’s most renowned protected areas – The Kruger National Park. 15000 hectares is a significant space for the enjoyment of just 32 people, and this is ultimately what makes the Lukimbi experience unique. This, along with the fact that your safari is as exciting from the lodge as it is out on game drive. There is something for everybody, including the prized Big Five, and countless other wild bird, reptile and mammal species.
