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.

... His one redeeming quality was that he introduced us to Fred a 30-something fly fishing guide who offered to help us in the morning fix the spare. Next morning with our "repaired" tyre almost flat we headed around to Fred's house. Upon examination we decided that he could do no more to help us but loan us his small compressor that plugged into the cigarette lighter and might help us to get thru to the next town. We made it too Barkley East for fuel and a blow up of the tyre but also ...

Moving further north again we saw Black Vurrgauke Eagle, Dwarf Mongoose, Wahirergis Eagle, Wildebeest, Swainsons Spurfowl, Impala, Waterbucks, a massive Elephant, a White backed Vulture, Giraffes, Vervet Monkeys, Gabar Goshawk, Warthogs, Cape
Buffolos, Zebra, Steenbok, a Kori Bustard, Spotted Hyena and finally 13 Elephants around one waterhole.
... servant to open up the house for us. We would however have to go in to Rhodes village for supper as she was not available to provide the arranged meal we would have had at the farmhouse. Unfortunately the geyser had not yet been switched on and some of the guys opted for a cold shower. I decided to wait until I returned from supper and sat outside on the stoep overlooking the mountain, enjoying some coffee with Maree from our flasks. Along the mountain we saw a few ...
