Travellers' Choice
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.

Most things about this game lodge are great, especially the rooms, food, friendly, efficient and staff. Game drives are great. Animal diversity is good, especially for this area. Safari guide Ticha is excellent. All staff go out of their way to ensure a luxurious stay. Tipping policy is confusing and a little off-putting. Clearer guidelines would be helpful. They all say tipping is optional but it isn't really - hence the request for guidelines. Mobile data signal is weak but good wi-fi in main lounge only.

Our stay at Lentaba Lodge on Lalibela Game Reserve was everything we had hoped for and more. The service was the best we’ve received from any establishment in SA - we felt like everyone genuinely wanted us to be looked after and have the best possible experience. The food was plentiful and delicious all the time, and the service in the dining room and bar area was quick and friendly. Drinks prices are really good here too! Our cottage was spotlessly clean, well equipped and comfortable with lots of space to really relax and enjoy the views. Absolutely loved the spacious bathroom with sliding door that opens up giving you a view from your bathtub. The game drives were each unique and informative. We managed to see most of the animals and experience these magnificent creatures

My wife and I visited Lalibela to celebrate our anniversary. We were treated as well as any top paying international guest. The lodge , guide and lodge staff were exceptional, nothing was too much trouble. Their attention to detail, from interesting warm drinks at the end of a cold game drive , to a complimentary bottle of bubbly to celebrate our anniversary, all made the Lalibela experience that much more special. The food was exceptional, great choice and impeccable quality and creativity (lucky we only stayed 2 days 😉). Our guide Ruan was outstanding from putting us onto Lion sighting, Cheetahs with Cubs , we even got to experience a Cheetah hunting and then feeding her Cubs. All in all an outstanding experience, we will be back.

We had a wonderful weekend spent at Lentaba Lodge recently. The accommodation, service and catering were all world class. We also enjoyed very special game drives and were rewarded for getting up early by beautiful sightings of cheetah, lion, rhino, ellies and buffalo, as well as a fleeting glimpse of a brown hyena and a report of aardwolf which was sighted by another game car.

Dear Guest Thank you for your wonderful review of Lentaba Lodge on Lalibela Game Reserve. We are pleased to hear that you had a wonderful stay with us. The early mornings can be a bit of a challenge however when you are rewarded with sightings like that, it is all worth the early start! You are very lucky to have seen the brown hyena, even though it was a quick glimpse as these animals are very rare to see. We hope that you will visit us again in the future. Kind regards, The Lalibela Team
