This private game reserve's location in the Eastern Cape means it is not only malaria free, but spans 5 ecosystems, resulting in a breath-taking diversity of flora and fauna. Lalibela has 5 lodges, all offering decor that is infused with the essence of Africa, as well as warm and friendly service and unforgettable game viewing. The 3 main aspects of any African safari are the game-viewing, the accommodation and the food – at Lalibela we take special care to ensure that heartfelt service combines with these three “ingredients” to make your Big 5 African safari experience a memorable one.

Over this passed weekend. Myself and my husband (Mr. And Mrs. van Vuuren) had the pleasure to have stayed at Marks camp in Lalibela Private Game Reserve for 4 days and 3 nights for my 60th birthday. The whole park was breathtakingly beautiful as well as Marks Camp. The entire staff is extremely friendly giving off a visit to your closets family and friends atmosphere. The hostess Anri is worth her weight in gold to Marks Camp. She takes intrest in wether you enjoyed your game drive and what animals you saw. At one point we even told Anri they serve too much food. Four big meals a day as much as you can eat. The rooms have breathtaking views and is spotlessly cleaned. The entire camp is safe and they follow strict Covid 19 protocols.If you want to see a ton of animals and birds,

My wife and I decided to return to Lalibela and spend 3 nights at Lentaba Lodge to celebrate our anniversary. The room was extremely clean, spacious, and comfortable. Once again, the food was absolutely delicious, particularly the deserts including the lemon tart and the “eat a mess” pavlova. The staff were very efficient and friendly and the covid protocols were well managed. Our ranger Liezel was professional and knowledgeable, and we saw plenty of game including lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo, cheetah, giraffe, zebra, and lots of antelope. We were fortunate to witness the interaction between 2 lions feeding on a giraffe carcass and 2 lionesses close by, when suddenly one of the lions got extremely aggressive and ended up charging at us. We were also lucky to get up close to a

Being in hospitality myself, I always have high expectations and Lalibela staff delivered way beyond my expectations. From the check in to the check out was such a pleasure (not that we wanted to leave). It was truly an unforgettable experience. The service and effort of each staff member proved that they love what they do. We stayed at Lentaba lodge for 3 nights. Michelle & her team were very helpful, friendly and went above & beyond to make our stay memorable. The chalets are immaculately clean & perfect for a relaxing time away. Our ranger, Ruan, went out of his way to help us find the big 'four'! We had the most amazing sightings and can only thank Ruan for his knowledge and passion for his work. We will surely be back in the near future. Thank you to all at

First time visit to this game reserve with my family. Unforgettable experience. Incredibly well priced for lovely rooms( no TV’s - thank you), wonderful food( the smell of freshly baked bread lingers) and life memory Game Drives( the guide Ashleigh turning every drive into much more than the ticking off the Big Five). A perfect location for a tourist doing Cape Town, the Winelands, Garden Route and just continue past Port Elizabeth. Brilliant.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful Lalibela is. We stayed at Lentaba for two nights. Regard, our ranger, was informative, friendly and entertaining. He found 4 of the big 5 for us, and we had such fun on his vehicle. The staff at the lodge from arrival to departure were friendly, helpful and all around wonderful. The food is delicious and plentiful. The rooms are beautiful, luxurious and spacious. The bed is huge, the bath is spa-like., the view is perfect. I hated to leave and will be back in a heartbeat.
