Game Drives go out in the early morning and late
afternoons in open Landrovers. Our Guides love to share
their extensive knowledge, and work closely with our
Shangaan trackers to get the best sightings. There is great
communication between the two and our Trackers are
encouraged to share their knowledge of local uses of herbs
and trees, animals and birds.
We can follow the Big 5 off road in careful, controlled
circumstances, this is an experience few guests would like
to miss. Guests are able to get really close to the animals
and experience truly fantastic photographic opportunities.
Early mornings start off a little cold, but a stop is made
later for warming drinks, or cold ones, if preferred. A
highlight of late afternoon drives is the time spent at
sundowner time. This is the moment to appreciate the

All children love to swim: for the younger ones there is
a special shallow kids pool. The older ones will enjoy the
water flowing across the rocks, until it drops into a
waterfall. There they can enjoy the adventure of sitting
behind the cascading water.
Then there is the main area and if they are lucky, they
will be able to watch elephants drinking from the pools in
the river bed nearby. Families with children under 8 years
must reserve their own private vehicle.
Rates for child minding and private Landrover are
available on request. Unfortunately, no children under 2 are
Lukimbi is the place to enjoy wonderful walks, because it
is so large and unspoiled. It is quite a different
experience to see animals on foot and always very exciting.
The walks offer the opportunity to look at and learn about
the smaller things and just to appreciate the special smell
of the African bush, listening to the calls of the many
species of birds. Walks are generally taken after breakfast
and guests are always accompanied by an armed Ranger.
Full Day Walking Safaris
We are proud to introduce Full Day Walking Trails at
Lukimbi Safari Lodge during our cooler winter months.
Anybody who is reasonably fit and healthy, and is looking
for something adventurous will certainly enjoy "bushwhacking"
on foot. There are emergency evacuation points along the
route if there is any kind of problem. The Wagon Trail, the
Lwakahle Trail and the Gabro Trail depart at approx. 07h00
and guests will return back to camp around 17h00.
Lukimbi can take a maximum of 8 guests, from 16+ years on
a walk. Guests do need to request the full day walk at time
of reservation, as it is subject to availability and there
is a huge amount of logistics involved. There is an
additional charge per person per walk. If you love to walk,
but not too keen on roughing it, our walks provide the best
combination of exercise, fresh air, fabulous game viewing,
all done in complete comfort, with rangers who clearly love
the whole experience.
Accommodation Rates:- From
$400 per person per night. Please contact us
