The service is really good, staff and rangers are super friendly and attentive. The facility needs attention though. The rooms could be cleaner. Unfortunately, there absolutely no possibility to exercise or even walk a few steps during your stay. Thus, your stay is mainly about eating and safaris. Nothing more. A gym would be great.

The 3 days at Lalibela were awesome. would certainly return. The staff cetainly make you feel welcome and look after you like a king. The game drives were great and we saw most of the big 5 which was very nice. The food is some of the best i have ever had on my travels.

Great food,accomadation and game drives...highly recommended although, unfortunately out of the price range for the average South African ....what a pity.!! If you've got the Bucks probably the best private game reserve in the eastern cape.

Wonderful staff (Greg was our ranger, he was great), very nice accommodation, good food and drinks! We stayed at the Lentaba Lodge and it was awesome.

We had a wonderful two full days and three nights. We would be scratching to find any negative. The staff and facilities were top class as expected. Ranger was most knowledgable and had a great sense of humour. The food was excellent with a great choice.

We had a great time at Lalibela Game Reserve. The wildlife is impressive, the rangers have a great knowledge and are eager to share it with you and thus the game drives are particularly interesting. The whole staff is extremely friendly! We stayed at Mark's Camp: the lodge is beautifully integrated in the nature, the rooms are clean and luxurious....

Ad the Lalibela Game Reserve and in its lodges you really feel like being in Africa. Everything was almost perfect. The room, the restaurant, the food, the staff, the game drives, the animals,... everything. Thumbs up and we can warmly recommend it!
