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.

What a treat! A group of old friends, who travel together once a year, and I have to say, this was our finest weekend yet. We arrived at Lalibela and after an efficient check in, we climbed on the game vehicle and headed to Mark's Camp, which is well positioned above a watering hole. En route we got a glimpse of some of the delights we would later see on our game drives. After a delicious lunch, we retired to our beautifully appointed rooms and relaxed before our late afternoon game drive. Our knowledgable and personable guide, Jonty, was lovely, making sure we saw lots of game, and that we all got just the right shot for our photographs. Dinner was a magnificent affair, looked after efficiently by Wendy and Dumisane, we ate well, before retiring for a good sleep in our

For our first trip to Lalibela Game Reserve we only had enough time to spend one spontaneous night, but we had an incredible time! It was mid winter so the weather was a bit temperamental, we got caught in the rain on our evening game drive, got soaked (we were provided with cozy ponchos and hot water bottles) and loved every minute of it! The lions were rather close to camp as we could hear them roar from inside our rooms! The following morning we were treated to a lion hunt talk about an experience! In the short time there we were able to witness a very diverse and lush landscape rich in plant and animal life! Our first guide Ticha was very knowledgeable. I can’t believe this gem is only 90km out of Gqeberha. We couldn’t resist returning to explore your beautiful reserve for

Dear Nicole Wow! Thank you for your amazing review of Lalibela! We are absolutely thrilled to hear that you enjoyed both your stays with us. We are so glad that you were able to visit us for a second time and stay a bit longer than your first visit. There is just so much to see and experience at Lalibela! It sounds like you were fortunate to see some very special wildlife sightings during your two visits. Brown hyenas are a rare sighting on their own, so to be able to see two pairs must have been incredibly exciting for you. We will pass on your kind words to both Ticha and Ruan. They will be so happy to hear that you enjoyed your game drives with them. We hope to welcome you back to Lalibela soon - We would love to have you stay with us again. Kind regards, The Lalibela Team

This is my 4th time at Lalibela and I cannot rate it highly enough. Every aspect of Lalibela is perfect. From the booking to every detail is highly efficient. Every single staff personal is helpful, competent, patient, friendly and kind. Lalibela gives you the feeling of a warm, happy, inviting family where they genuinely care about their guests and their passion in what they do is evident. The rooms are immaculate large, an extremely heavenly huge comfortable bed and even a chocolate at night as a final touch of pampering. The food was absolutely delicious and plentiful. Everything is home made, even the snacks on the game drive and they are scrumptious. On your return from your drive you are greeted with a hot towel and a welcome drink. On cold nights there is a crackling

We recently stayed at Lentaba Camp in Lalibela for 2 days and although the weather did play along, we had a wonderful experience. From the well-appointed rooms to the exciting and informative game drives with Craig to the wonderful warming fires and good food after each game drive. The staff were attentive and the location is superb. I could have stayed much longer!
