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.

We visited Marks Camp at the end of october and once again the experience was amazing. Our guide, Carrie Ann, made the experience so interesting for all of us, from showing us various animal tracks to tasting termites, even stopping to show us an African Land snail ,she kept all of us, and especially our children engaged. We saw the big 4 and enjoyed 4 spectacular game drives. The highlight was definitely swimming in the pool while elephants drank at the watering hole below us. Bongi and Wendy kept us entertained and so well looked after in the dining room And hats off to the chef as the food was amazing My son is still talking about the kudu steak! Thank you Lalibela team for a fantastic 2 day stay. We will definitely be back. Dylan and Tamaryn Cox

This was our second visit and was as outstanding as our first. The accommodation was first class as was the dinning. From the moment we arrived the staff were so friendly and hospital. Nothing was too much trouble and every one went that extra mile. Our ranger for the four days was Darren who made sure that we saw all of the big five. Nothing was too much trouble and every day was a new adventure. I had damaged my hamstring before our visit and he made sure that I was really looked after. It is impossible to complain about anything as everything was perfect.

We had a great experience at Mark's Camp. The room was very tastefully decorated and spacious with high quality linen. The meals were very tasteful and special requests were handled with pleasure. The staff was very friendly and most helpful making our stay at the lodge very memorable. A definite highlight was the game viewing where we were able to get very close to the animals. There is an abundance of animals, birds and beautiful scenes. Our guide, Carrie-Ann, must receive a special mention with her vast knowledge making the viewing very informative. She went out of her way to accommodate our requests and we experienced great encounters with the animals thanks to her. Lalibela is a sure recommendation.

This is my third time at Lalibela Game Reserve. I can only sing high praises for this reserve. From the very helpful admin when making my booking to each staff member I cannot praise them highly enough. The rooms were large and the bed was the most comfortable bed ever. My daughter in law wanted to pack it up and take it home with her (LOL) Rooms were extremely well equipped with a real powerful hairdryer. Much attention to detail. Even a night treat on your bed. Food was excellent, Pre breakfast, breakfast, lunch, dinner. snacks and drinks on the game dives. So much to eat!! Two 3 hour Game drives everyday, nice warm blankets for the chilly mornings and evenings. A welcome warm drink on return from your evening game drive. While it is a small private game reserve it
