My wife and I had a thoroughly enjoyable 3-hour game drive, excellent lunch, and entertaining show at this Game Reserve. We observed lots of wildlife such as elephants, zebras, lions, cheetahs, impalas, kudos, hippos, etc. Lunch was buffet style. Chicken, kebabs, venison stew, rice, fresh garden vegetables, rolls, salad items, soup, cheeses, fresh fruit, etc, was provided. Everything was tasty...

The lodge has five rooms nestled among trees and bushes and perched on the side of a valley. Each room is sited off the main walkways of the camp and is very private. The rooms are...

My wife and I hadn't done a game safari before so when Lalibela had a special for locals we took the chance and booked 3 nights. We came away delighted at the experience.

We (5 of us) were supposed to stay one night at Lalibela and were really looking forward to it. Unfortunate circumstances happened and we weren't able to go. After getting in contact with the manageress we were told we would get no refund at all. Definately would advise people against paying full price

Lodged here for one night and we enjoyed this place very much. Individual villa is provided to each party and the rooms were very spacious. Each stay includes two rides and we saw so many wild animals including Elephant and giraffe. Service is great and thanks to the staff.
