Lukimbi Safari Lodge is one of only 7 private concessions in the Kruger National Park. Guests at ‘Lukimbi Safari Lodge will experience a unique private safari in this vastly protected reserve where the 'Big Five' and a wide variety of other animals and birds roam freely in their natural habitat.
The location of ‘Lukimbi Safari Lodge was carefully chosen. It was important that the extraordinary magic of the reserve was fully appreciated whether out in the bush on safari or whether you were back at the lodge itself. ‘Lukimbi Safari Lodge is located under a cluster of ancient trees in front of a natural fed spring. It offers the most beautiful views along the bank of the Lwakahle River.
The lodge took 2 years to build. It was constructed out of natural materials to blend subtly into its surrounding environment and so that it also leaves a very light footprint on the earth. In among the Marula trees, Sweetthorn acacias, Knobthorns and Bushwillows lining the water, it made sense to build the lodges on stilts with many carved concrete panels. These panels are a feature throughout the lodge.
Every room and living space was designed around the view, while latticed ceilings filter the sun’s light which casts ambient shifting shadows as the sun moves across the sky. The Lodge is one with the environment, and guest will be able to feel it.
‘Lukimbi has a character of its own – it is warm, inviting, charmingly imperfect and a little quirky too! Bright and richly textured natural fabrics, bold furniture was selected for comfort and artisanal crafted artworks. Guests will be able to relax and are invited to make themselves completely at home – be that in the lounge, the bar, the dining room or at one of the relaxation alcoves on the upper or lower deck, or even in the library.
There is a pool area which is a place of serenity, right on the bank of the Lwakahle River. There are multi-levelled relaxation decks, with a pool overlooking the river and for the kids there is paddle pool close by.
Luxury accommodation in a classic air-conditioned suite, 3 full meals daily, all teas and coffees, 2 game drives daily and a safari walk.
2 Nights self-drive from R7,900 pps
