Easy to reach and family-friendly, Lalibela Game Reserve is one of the Eastern Cape’s best-kept secrets. The malaria-free sanctuary promises guests an authentic African Big 5 experience.

While safaris are their speciality, Lalibela is just as committed to hospitality. Guests can look forward to an enchanting menu, ranging from local classics to more modern African-inspired nourishment.


Because there are no public roads running through the property, all animals, including predators, can be seen roaming freely. Lalibela’s experienced rangers are just as passionate about introducing guests to the timid blue duiker and South African springhare as they are to the magnificent leopard and African elephant.Catch a glimpse of them all, big and small, on an early morning or sunset game drive.
