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.

Reading the other 2 reviews on the site about Lalibela, we entirely agree with most of the comments already made. We also stayed at the Tree Tops lodge in room 2. The setting, food and decor were all excellent. We stayed for 1 night only before our flight back to London. Unfortunately we were disturbed in the night (3.30am) by 2 bats which had found their way into the room. This was very disconcerting. We are perfectly used to camping and had stayed at hostels during our trip to SA and are quite prepared to rough it, but to find that the room wasn't properly screened for the amount of money that it costs to stay there, was disappointing. Not to mention that we didn't get any more sleep that night! We had a wake-up call at 5am in any case, for the morning game drive,

I can only echo the sentiments and high praise of the last review/s. My wife and I returned from South Africa this morning and ended our trip with three days at the Treetops lodge at Lalibela. Mark & Cornelia are excellent hosts and the game of the best quality. The level of service and the extra distance they went when they knew it was my wifes 40th Birthday meant a lot to us and the extra touches that they put into our stay made it truly memorable. If you go to the Eastern Cape Addo area - GO HERE you will NOT regret it.

My husband and I were fortunate to be able to spend December 30 to January 1st at what was the most amazing adventure of our lives. From the moment you are greeted at the gate, to the warm reception upon arrival, the great BBQ (braai)and African performers for your welcome lunch to meeting staff and relaxing over a beautiful vista of Africa, it is wonderful. And you haven't yet meet you guide nor arrived at your camp. Lalibela has 3 camps on a huge property. Marks' Camp caters to families and has a nanny on site, another camp whose name I cannot remember, has room for 16 or 18 people (so a larger group), and the amazing Tree Tops which has only 4 rooms. If you want romantic, stress free and personal, this is the place. We had Tree Tops number one which is the only unit to have
