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.

Fantastic travel agent for African safari family trip!
Wow! Shann was and is fantastic! She figured out a way to make our entire trip work. We are going on a 2 week trip to South Africa and Botswana. She really helped tie it all together as a wonderful, cohesive trip. She is super nice and super smart and very knowledgeable. She is also flexible and thoughtful, etc., etc. When the chips were down (and we literally were considering pulling the plug on the whole trip), she found a way to make the entire itinerary work and got us excited about our wonderful adventure! Highly recommend!
