We had a fabulous time, the accommodation was perfect, no problems at all. Our ranger Sarah was extremely caring and her knowledge was exceptional. We had five game drives of over 3hrs each and saw all the game we could possibly have wished for. We have been raving about Lalibela to everyone we know and would love to return. We particularly liked the way Sarah allowed the animals to approach our vehicle, absolutely splendid. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the food was super.

This game reserve delivered on all accounts. The accommodation was perfect with clean, well designed lodges. The Staff were friendly and helpful and attended to all the visitors with warmth. The food was amazing and plentiful! Game drives were spectacular, with experienced and enthusiastic Rangers.

We (4 people) were there for 2 days = 4 game drives one was 3-4 hours. Please go to the toilet before! The weather was very cold (in August/wintertime) The drives were very shakey but funny. Our guide Ticha told us a lot about the animals and we enjoyed it very much. We saw the big 4. We didn't find the lepard. The bedrooms were so luxury and decored with love and very clean. The food was everytime very good and a big variety.

Room Tip: We had standard bedrooms and were very satisfied. Come hungry, there you will receive a lot of food!

We stayed at Lalibela for 2 nights (which i recommend in stead of 1 night) and were really excited about this lodge. Stayed at Marks Camp, all inclusive and we have had some very nice game drives. Rooms are nice and the food is good as well.

We were treated like royalty. The staff could not have been kinder or more helpful. The rooms are lovely and the food was fantastic. Our ranger was wonderful and our drives were so interesting and fun. We were so lucky to get so close to quite a few of the majestic big 5!
