Malaria and Animals
  • The magnificent Lukimbi Safari Lodge lies in the game rich, the southern region of South Africa's Kruger National Park. Bordered by three major river systems, the huge 15 100 hectare area at Lukimbi offers a great variety of habitats. The vast African grasslands dominate the northern area, whereas the central and southern regions are wooded and characterised with lush riverine thickets.

    The habitat surrounding the Lukimbi Safari Lodge is home to large herds of wildebeest, zebra as well as other plains animals.  The white rhino can also be found here while the more elusive black rhino has made its home in the more wooded areas.  Magnificent herds of buffalo roam through the vast grasslands of the national park seeking the fresh grass, before moving to rivers.

    In the concession, elephants can frequently be observed and in the river in front of the Lukimbi Safari Lodge is a favourite place for them.  Guests relaxing at the swimming pools are excited watching elephant families equally enjoying their pools.

    Predators such as tracking lions in the open safari vehicles are one of the most thrilling things to do when in the bushveld.  Leopards can also found at the Lukimbi Safari Lodge, which is harder to spot.
