Lukimbi offers high quality,exquisite meals, unique chalet accommodation, fantastic animal viewing and attentive, customized service. We spent our 10th anniversary at the lodge, whereby the we were treated to an extra special evening which will not be forgotten.
As well, I particularly enjoyed the optional walks to explore the area on foot but in the safety of the rangers accompanying us. Zane, Shaun and the team made our stay perfect.

were slinking off in disgust. Finally we saw a male Lion by the side
of the road that was definitly not well. He had damage to one rear
leg and was panting away like mad. We heard that they were waiting
for the vet to attend him. We then settled down for the night at ...
... to assist with traction for those coming up from Rhodes. Everyone took it easy and we were pleased to get down safely. At the bottom crossing we turned off to the left and rode a short distance to the farmhouse turnoff on the right where we were going to stay for the evening - Lovedale Self Catering farm Cottage. Wayne phoned the owner who informed us that she had had a kidney stone problem requiring an emergency procedure in Bloemfontein. She had however arranged for ...
... fall into the upper 30s F and would climb into the 80s F in the afternoon, so we had to dress in layers. We would split up into three vehicles and head out on safari at 6:30am while it was still dark. Our three amazing rangers, Craig, Mike and Byron, drove the Land Rovers. There was a seat mounted on the front of the vehicle where our African tracker would sit. Both the ranger and the tracker would carefully examine the dirt road for tracks left by animals ...
