Overview

  • Exclusive-use Private Villa
  • Lalibela Game Reserve
  • Exceptional Big Five viewing
  • Award winning & excellent rated

Mills Manor is an exclusive-use home style villa offering an idyllic and private safari getaway. The villa has a relaxed home-away-from-home ambiance and comes with a private game ranger and vehicle, chef and housekeeper. The gables, high ceilings, large rooms and wide wrap-around veranda are typical of the Edwardian farmhouses of the region, built at a time when high wool prices and the ostrich feather boom allowed farmers to build stately family homes. The villa is set on a hill overlooking a waterhole, which means that game viewing continues even after game drives.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Exclusive-use home style villa;
  • Private safari getaway;
  • Home to the Big Five;
  • Set in malaria-free area;
  • Ideal for a small group seeking exclusivity;
  • Professional and friendly staff.

INCLUDED IN THE RATES

We pride ourselves on our ability to offer the best in Big 5 game viewing. At Mills Manor, we are blessed to have phenomenal sightings of the Big 5 as well as the various other species that visitors so enjoy seeing. In addition to the larger, more known wild animals, this lodge has various lesser-known species and our rangers delight in exposing our guests to these – the curious spring hare is as fascinating as the mighty African elephant! Apart from the wide variety of wildlife, there is a plethora of birdlife to be found on Lalibela – the keen birder can expect to spot birds on safari, at the lodge or even from the viewing deck of their room! Also, we offer “soft” walking safaris for the whole family where you can get up close and personal with zebra, giraffe, warthog and various antelope in a safe environment.

“Outstanding”

Well, what can I say, what a place? From the accommodation to the food to the staff to the game drives, everything was brilliant. We were in a rented room and was a little worried it might be cold, but how wrong could I have been. When you went to your room at night there was a heater on and a lovely electric blanket already turned on so your bed was nice and cozy. Our ranger Sarah had a wealth of knowledge and made the game drives very exciting, thanks.The food on offer was fantastic, and sitting around the fire in the evening chatting with the other guests at the treetop camp was just so nice. I would recommend this place to anyone. Well worth a visit.

“Wonderful place with great staff”

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. The staff takes very good care, you don’t miss anything.

You get asked before the game drives what you would like to drink and overall you can feel that it is very important to the people that you have a great time.

Very good value for money, we were absolutely happy!

“Incredible experience”

2 brilliant days at Lalibela – just wonderful. Great service, nice meals and 4 incredible game drives were we saw, close up – Lions, cheetah, a herd of elephants, buffaloes, rhino’s, hippo’s, hyena, giraffes and much more. Our guide Andrew was brilliant – good fun & very knowledgeable – not just with the big animals, but also the plants & birds. He even managed to stop & show us millipedes & snails.

The highlight was definitely a remarkable final evening safari game drive – long story but a hilarious lesson in basic natural instinct.

745pm, we were viewing 2 male & 2 female lions just after sunset. The 2 females suddenly rose & approached our jeep menacingly – we hurriedly moved & then noted their interest not in us, but in two Impala’s feedings around 100m away through a clearing. We settled in to view their approach, as they crawled slowly along the clearing in the fading light.

A funny thing happened though – after around 25 minutes, almost dark now, and with the lead lioness now around halfway, one of the males got up from their base camp and strolled nonchalantly into the clearing, obviously sick of waiting for dinner & indeed had other priorities – he demanded to mate immediately!!

The Impala, upwind & now in the dark did not notice a thing as after 2 minutes the lioness basically rejected the males advance and continued on her stalking approach – obviously hungry. The male lion then just sat in the middle of the clearing to view the advance from close up.

At this point, the other lioness took a left and began circling the area to trap the Impala from behind.

Unfortunately, by 840pm, after almost an hour of experiencing real nature – and animals expressing their basic instincts for food & mateship and differing priorities of males & females – it was now pitch black & we needed to return to our camp, so we did not see whether the kill was successful.

Incredible experience to conclude a fantastic couple of days.

“Incredible”

We stayed 4 nights as a family with 2 youngish boys (11 & 8) and worried that the safari drives would be too long for them, but they absolutely loved it. We all found the drives absolutely fantastic, and all the rangers seemed good, but ours, Andrew, in particular, went out of his way to relate to the boys.

Additionally, the food and general service were excellent, rooms were nice and the waterhole glorious to watch the animals come and go as they pleased.

Only slight negative, to be picky, was that there is not a huge amount to do in between the game drives, and although we loved reading in the sun, the boys had little else to do but splash about in the small pools. Maybe some conservation & wildlife lectures/talks etc could have broken up the day for them?
