Stayed for 2 nights and had the most amazing experiences. From the cheerful welcome at the entrance gate to the moment we left, the team were outstanding in their commitment to making our stay the best ever! I appreciated only having to drive a short distance to the reception and then being transported to the lodge by jeep. No scary rocky roads in our tiny rental car! We stayed at Lentaba Lodge and the room was gorgeous. Fabulous view over the countryside and the best bathroom ever with full wall window looking over the Reserve. The food was plentiful and delicious and with only 20 guests the staff were able to spend lots of time with us. Last but not least- The game drives- incredible! Techa was so knowledgable and informative. A careful and skilful driver with a natural affinity with the animals. He worked tirelessly to ensure we had the best experience of animals ever. Our fourth drive was hampered by the most torrential rain - but despite this he managed to find 7 lions for us to see as well as the other animals enjoying their morning downpour. A magical experience. We hope to return if we can. Highly recommended. Thank you Lalibela!

I took a group of 19 crew members from the Albatross Cruise ship to Lalibela this week. It was a most successful outing for them and everyone seemed to love being out in the African Sun.
After our Game Drive with Ruan we were treated to a lunch and then the highlight for us was being taught to play the African Drums. We were given lessons on the use of the drum and ended up having a great time making music with the group.

Room Tip: All rooms have amazing views

Each of the lodges here are so so beautiful and unique. The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Great game drive and layout of lodges. The Big 5 and animals in great condition! Some true African flavor with original lion paw prints in the cemented walkway area. Feels like you are lost at an oasis... it makes you want to loose your phone and just consume nature!

Staying at Tree Tops at Lalibela is fantastic. Luxury tents, great food and service. And most important .. the game drives are fantastic. Our ranger Craig was very experienced and had the most Beautiful stories about the wildlife.
As it was very fresh in the mornings, blankets and hotwater bottles were provided on the safari truck.
Tree Tops has only 5 tents , so this is a small camp with a very personal service...

We would like to say thank you to all Lalibela staff. In august, my wife, my daughter and me, we spent 4 days in the Reserve having great time. Warm welcome in any moment, fantastic food and wonderful accommodation.

During our Safari we shot more than 4.000 pictures ! The different areas of Lalibela gives the opportunity to have so many scenic view with different animals and different situations. See animals after sunset in the dark is something incredible. See my 10 yo daughter tasting termites is something that I will never forget.

The mist on the hills in the morning, African sunset in the evening and the Milky Way in the sky while you are sitting on a chair out of you room is something that few lines can’t explain.

Unforgettable experiences.

But, the most important thing is that we came home with more. Now we have new friends. Share these moments with Ticha, our ranger, who explained us so many things, showing details, stay together in silence looking animals so close, enriched us in an incredible way.

Then, when we were back to the lodge after the game drive….who can forget the warm cocktails that Nkosinathi prepares !

Thank you all, we look forward to come back one day !

Thank you so much for your kind comments - we really appreciate hearing about your experience.

We would love to see some of the photos that you took while on safari, so you are more than welcome to send them through to our reservations office. Maybe we could even share some of them on social media for the rest of our followers to see.

We hope to see you back at Lalibela real soon.

Warm Regards,
