Cots are provided for littler bodies, while single beds accommodate children between the ages of 4 and 12. Families are allocated to the units closer to the lodge facilities.

The main area of the lodge is a welcoming space with its sweeping staircase and artistic fireplace with creatively engraved animals. The comfortable lounge area overlooks the Lwakahle River where animals often come to drink, and the bar nearby has an award-winning wine list and cellar.

Meals are served in different dining areas around the lodge to allow for various views across the African bush. Other facilities include a library, business center, curio shop, outdoor swimming pool with connecting children's paddle pool, spa, gym, chapel, and Wi-Fi access in the main lounge area of the lodge.

Lukimbi Safari Lodge is bounded by three major river systems, the extensive 15 000 hectare area offers a diverse array of habitats, from grasslands to wooded areas and lush riverine thickets.

Guided Bushwalks include birdwatching, trackking animals  and learning about the medicinal value of plants, or of the geology of rock formations and characteristic landscapes. Walks are between 2 and 5 kilometres in distance, and are dependent on the fitness level and specific interests of the guest.
