Lukimbi is a beautiful lodge with all the facilities of a luxury hotel, run efficiently and with warm service. I came back to this lodge having visited 2 years ago. The private concession in which Lukimbi is located is a rich area, with amazing sightings - made all the more

"unser" kleines Häuschen ;)
An beiden Tagen kam am frühen Nachmittag eine Gruppe Elefanten am Zimmer vorbei zur Wasserstelle vor dem Haupthaus.
The guides are able to drive off road when on their private concession. When they cross over into the public part of Kruger National park no off road is allowed.

The hotel has adapters you can use I believe (just email and confirm) The majority of outlets in room are compatible with M-Type adapters. For whatever reason I didn't have luck with those adapters and the transformers I brought (this was all over SA not just Lukimbi). I had success using one of those "all in one adapters" you get from a retail store. Also there is a shaving outlet in bathroom that I utilized. Not sure why the large prong m-type adapters on 110/230V transformers. But I would ask hotel prior to going.

That has always been a difficult question. As much as you feel you would like too I would say. There are other replys with amounts for guides and trackers but each I believe somehow are all worth the same. Tips usually get shared but lodges differ and by month end often tips are shared equal. Hence guide and tracker get tipped separately and the top box is shared equally. It's a tip not a salary but well worth a contribution. Best way is to consult the manager of the lodge .

What view do the rooms have?
I wish I could post pics in the comments. Unbelievable views! You are literally planted in the middle of the bush! Floor-to-ceiling windows looking out over the vast expanse! It was funny because when I was getting a tour of my place, The guide noted the floor-to-ceiling windows… And the fact that you even have them if you’re sitting on the toilet! Ha ha ha! There is even an indoor and outdoor shower option! You‘ll never miss a beat if an animal goes by! I’m sure if you go to their website you will see photos of how it’s laid out and what the views look like. It’s amazing!
