Lalibela Game Reserve


Lalibela Game Reserve is located in the Eastern Cape, which means it is not only malaria free, but spans 5 ecosystems, resulting in a diversity of flora and fauna. The three main aspects of any safari are the game-viewing, the accommodation and the food. At Lalibela special care is taken to ensure that personal service combines with these three "ingredients" to make guests’ African safari experience a memorable one.

Lalibela Game Reserve consists of 7,500 hectares (approximately 18,500 acres) and is home to the Big 5 (lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard). Lalibela is unique in the Eastern Cape in that there are no public roads running through the property. All of the animals, including the predators, are free-roaming throughout the entire reserve.

There are three game lodges in the reserve, all offering decor that is infused with the essence of Africa, as well as warm and friendly service, and unforgettable game viewing.
