We've recently returned from 2 nights at this amazing and special game lodge. Our experience overall was absolutely wonderful. From the welcome at the gate, throughout our stay, the Lalibela team were exceptionally warm, friendly, courteous and extremely helpful. The lodge is beautiful, right in the heart of nature, with an abundance of magnificent wildlife. Our guide, Ticha, was exceptionally knowledgeable, friendly and had a great sense of humour too. The meals were delicious and plentiful, and our food allergies were catered for seemingly effortlessly. Our rooms were very comfortable and luxurious, with quality linen and fittings - all beautifully co-ordinated. A huge thank you to ALL for making our stay truly magical. We will be sure to be back.
It was such a pleasure to travel to the beautiful countryside that was only an hour from home (Port Elizabeth/Gqeberha). Our room was great, with every amenity one could need. Our ranger, Woody, was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic. One could absolutely see that he loves his job, and his environment, and cares for it deeply. We have been to a number of game reserves over the years, but I can truly say I have never experienced the "vibe" of Lalibela before - not to sound silly, but it was almost as if all the animals were happy and relaxed :) . There was an overwhelming feeling of peace and contentment, and this surely must be as a result of the passionate conservation practised. Well done and thank you!
We were in the Kichaka lodge for 3 days. This was the most beautifull experience of our life. Perfect Guide Andrew and a wonderfull hospitality in the Lodge by Chistina. Also the hotel is quietly, very beautifull and clean. The staff does everything for the guests. Also the food was very good!
We recently stayed at Lalibela and had the best time. All the safaris we went on were interesting thanks to our entertaining and thoughtful guides. They answered all our questions and helped us see so many animals, including lions and rhinos and cape buffalo and zebra and so many beautiful antelope and birds. We were housed in Kichaka Lodge which was beautiful and so comfortable. The staff was excellent and made sure we were well cared for. We highly recommend the experience!
Fabulous trip to Lalibela with the family. The kids had a brilliant time and huge thanks to the staff and especially Jonty. The game drives were very relaxed and perfect for our young kids. The food was great and the staff were very friendly. Can't wait to be back again next year.
