Day 1 : Kruger National Park

Your safari begins with a flight from Johannesburg. Upon arrival at Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport, you'll be transferred to Lukimbi where you will check-in and freshen up. (This safari may also begin/end in Cape town with direct flights from Cape Town available.)

Enjoy a delicious lunch at the lodge. In the afternoon, proceed for a thrilling sunset game drive. You'll be in an open safari vehicle with a professional guide to maximize the chances of encountering the Big Five. Enjoy a sundowner in between.

A Lukimbi safari is a unique take on a traditional Kruger National Park safari in that vehicles are permitted to traverse off-road under strictly controlled conditions. This, coupled with the fact that no more than 32 people to enjoy 15 000 hectares of pristine protected wilderness, makes for an exclusive and highly personalised close contact safari experience.

Later, you'll return to the lodge to enjoy delicious dinner options, specially prepared by experienced Chefs.

Day 2: The Animals Are Never Far

Safaris go out in the morning (just before sunrise to return in time for breakfast) and are an incomparable way to properly connect with Africa.

Hopefully, there will be a matriarchal herd of mother elephants and babies. Perhaps you'll see a savage lion kill, a majestic bull elephant, or a herd of stern-looking African buffalos. There are thrilling encounters around every corner!

Arrive back at the lodge and have breakfast. Freshen up and meet at the lodge reception for your morning bushwalk with an armed guide.

In the afternoon, have lunch at the lodge and later proceed for your safari. Late afternoon is a good time for game viewing, and guests are able to experience at first hand the amazing colours of an African sunset. Return to the lodge for dinner as an exciting day comes to an end.
