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 we took their picture, and we all knew that they could easily jump into the Land Rover if they wanted to.
We would regroup with the other two vehicles around 8:30am for a welcome coffee break before heading back out on safari. At 10am, we would return to the camp for brunch, followed by some sort of mid-day group activity. On two occasions, a smaller group of 6-8 adults headed out with two rangers on a "bush walk," or safari on foot. Kids under the ...
