Mark’s Camp is situated on a wide valley in Lalibela Game Reserve overlooking a waterhole. The lodge is built of stone and thatch and sleeps up to 20 guests in four individual chalets and four family chalets.
Each chalet is comfortably furnished and has an en suite bathroom and air conditioning for the warm summer nights. The chalets open up onto a private deck with views over the surrounding bush. Facilities include an en suite bathroom with shower (no bath), separate toilet, ceiling fan, panel heater, direct dial telephone, hairdryer, and tea/coffee making facilities.
Mark's Camp is perfect for families travelling with young children. The 3 family rooms and 1 family suite can sleep up to 10 adults and 8 children. Family Units are very much the same as the standard chalets and have all the same facilities. They also have a bath and shower, and the children’s sleeping area is separated from the main room by a lattice partition. The children’s beds double as a lounge area when not required. Camping cots are also available on request.
Between game drives, guests can relax in the large lounge, bird watch from the viewing decks or laze around the swimming pool. Mark’s Camp has an outdoor dining “boma” for fireside dinners and open-air brunches, as well as a gracious indoor dining area.
Game drives in an open vehicle with an experienced game ranger bring visitors face to face with a multitude of game species, ranging from elephant, lion, rhino and buffalo to tiny blue duiker and rock hyrax. Lalibela is also home to cheetah, hyena, hippo, giraffe, zebra, warthog and numerous species of antelope, such as eland, kudu, bushbuck and wildebeest. On exciting night drives, guests can search for the elusive bat-eared fox, aardvark, black-backed jackal, aardwolf and the curious spring hare. An exciting children's programme is offered at this lodge.
