Premier Suites at Lukimbi

Though the service throughout Lukimbi Safari Lodge is unrivaled, for that extra privacy, and additional space, we recommend our ultra-luxurious King Cheetah and Giant Eagle Owl suites. They have: a separate bedroom; dining area; larger lounge; main bathroom with huge ‘shareable’ bath; an inside and outside shower; a second bathroom; and private pool with wooden deck, where elephants quite often stop by for a drink. A must for any special celebration or spoiling!

Classic Suites at Lukimbi

Enter our classic suits and enjoy your proximity to nature with high windows, a well-appointed bathroom overlooking the trees and river, and your own private deck extending from your lounge. You can’t feel closer to the bush without actually being in it.

Feel spoilt with a spacious bath, inside and outside shower and separate toilet. All suites have air-conditioning; a fan; safe, gauzy, romantic mosquito nets; tea and coffee facilities; and a mini bar. Even with children sharing the room, you can luxuriate in the space and atmosphere.

Where is Lukimbi Safari Lodge

Lukimbi Safari Lodge is situated within the Kruger National Park on the Lwakahle River. The closest gate to the Lodge is Malelane. The drive from the Malelane gate to Lukimbi is 27.5 kilometres and takes approximately 45 minutes. The concession is one of the biggest in the southern section of the Park and is over 15 000 hectares (37 100 Acres).  This is for our exclusive use and no other vehicles are permitted to drive here. We do not drive on the public roads in the Kruger unless there are unusual game sightings in the vicinity.

How To Get There

Lukimbi can be reached by road. It is 440 km from Johannesburg on the N4. Or guests can fly to KMIA/Nelspruit airport and transfers can be arranged from there.

Charters can fly into Malelane airstrip and transfers can be arranged to the lodge. Ask one of our friendly consultants to advise the applicable Kruger Park entrance fee at the time of booking.

Being in the Kruger National Park, the game viewing is excellent. Lukimbi is particularly lucky to be home to both white and black rhino as well as the rest of the Big Five and a wide variety of general game.

GAME DRIVES: (Safaris)

Game drives are in open vehicles with an experienced ranger and tracker.  There are 2 game drives daily lasting about three hours each. Limited off road driving is permitted, offering exceptionally close viewing.

Private vehicles are available to guests subject to availability. Rates for these are on request.  Private vehicles must be booked for families with children 4 years and under.  Please ask about our annual “Landrover Waiver Charge” as this may be applicable to your stay.


Walks are catered to suit guests.  For the fit and energetic, long walks can be arranged, or shorter strolls for guests wanting to take things more gently.

FULL DAYS WALKS are offered during the winter months.  These must be booked in advance and there is an extra charge applicable, per person per walk – subject to availability – and a minimum of 4 guests doing a walk


Guests should arrive from 12h00 but preferably not later than 15h00.  This allows guests to relax before the evening game drive. Please remember lunch is served between 14h00 and 15h30.

Sufficient time must be allowed for the transfer operator to get into and back out of the Park before gate closing times.  PLEASE DO NOT BOOK ON THE 16H15 FLIGHT.

Departures are at 10h30am giving guests time for both a morning game drive and breakfast.
