SAFARI - EASTERN CAPE      Safari Enquiry Form

For more details on each game reserve or place to stay, please select from the drop-down menus. The places listed are only a small selection of our favourites - please don't hesitate to contact us for other popular options in the area.


Lalibela Game Reserve is located in the Eastern Cape which means it is not only malaria-free, but spans 5 ecosystems, resulting in a breath-taking diversity of flora and fauna in true African safari style.

The location in the Eastern Cape region of South Africa makes us a perfect extension to the Garden Route and Cape Town.  Cape Town and Port Elizabeth airports allow visitors to South Africa to save precious holiday time - many of our guests fly into Cape Town, drive along the Garden Route and end with a safari at Lalibela Game Reserve.  Check out time at Lalibela allows for guests to fly out of Port Elizabeth and connect with international flights from either Cape Town or Johannesburg, which depart in the evenings.

The popularity of doing a safari in the Eastern Cape has grown and this is borne out by the fact that our region boasts a variety of safari products such as Addo Elephant National Park, Shamwari, Kwandwe, Gorah, Kariega and Amakhala.

The three main aspects of any 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 safari experience a memorable one.

Lalibela now 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 we have no public roads running through our property.  All of the animals, including the predators, are free-roaming throughout the entire reserve. 

At Lalibela, food is true safari cuisine with an emphasis on local specialties, ranging from centuries-old recipes to exciting contemporary African dishes.

Of the 6 vegetation types in South Africa, 5 occur naturally on Lalibela.  Of these, the Valley Bushveld biome, which only occurs in the Eastern Cape, has the highest carrying capacity of game in South Africa.  For this reason Lalibela is able to sustain a dense population of wildlife.  Big 5 sightings occur regularly and other game such as zebra, giraffe, antelope, hippo, cheetah etc is abundant and in order to get the most out of your safari experience, we recommend a 2 or 3-night stay.

We currently have 3 lodges at Lalibela.  Whilst the standard of accommodation at Lentaba Lodge, Mark's Camp and Tree Tops are the same, each has its own unique character.  At all three lodges, secluded thatched chalets are placed where magnificent indigenous gardens merge into the surrounding bush.  Each en-suite unit has a private observation deck to make the most of the views.  The lodges also boast a large lounge, viewing deck and a sunny swimming pool where you can spend a lazy afternoon.  They also have an outdoor dining 'boma' for fireside dinners and open-air brunches, as well as a stylish indoor dining area.
