We had 2 nights at the Lentebe Lodge in Lalibela.
We had an amazing guide Rudi.
There are two game drives every au
First around 06:30 and second at around 16:00.
Schedule is :
Wake up at 05:30, light breakfast at 06:00
Game drive 06:30-09:30
Breakfast 10:15
Lunch 14:00
Game drive at 16:00
Return around 19:00
Dinner 19:30.
The food and drinks all included.
Team was very friendly .
The rooms are nice . Well decorated .
The main house has beautiful balconies.
It's a great place to make a Acari especially if you are starting the tour towards Cape Town through garden route.
Much better than Kruger.
Highly recommended !

Stayed: September 2017, travelled with family

had a wonderful stay at Lalibela. the most friendly staff and i cannot praise Rudy enough for finding us 4 of the big five and all his interesting information about the bush. We went on a South African special which was a great discount. New owners have just taken over and are making a lot of improvements to the place. For the full price I would have found the place a little tired. Food was average except for the chicken al a king we had at one meal. I am a non red meat eater and was told i would be catered for but on the second night the choice was beef or pork which was disappointing. On the special we received a glass of wine with lunch and wine at dinner which I felt was a nice touch. there is a waterhole on the property and a lion was seen drinking just before we arrived.

Room Tip: room 1 is nice and close to the main building

We had a fabulous time, the accommodation was perfect, no problems at all. Our ranger Sarah was extremely caring and her knowledge was exceptional. We had five game drives of over 3hrs each and saw all the game we could possibly have wished for. We have been raving about Lalibela to everyone we know and would love to return. We particularly liked the way Sarah allowed the animals to approach our vehicle, absolutely splendid. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the food was super.

This game reserve delivered on all accounts. The accommodation was perfect with clean, well designed lodges. The Staff were friendly and helpful and attended to all the visitors with warmth. The food was amazing and plentiful! Game drives were spectacular, with experienced and enthusiastic Rangers.

We (4 people) were there for 2 days = 4 game drives one was 3-4 hours. Please go to the toilet before! The weather was very cold (in August/wintertime) The drives were very shakey but funny. Our guide Ticha told us a lot about the animals and we enjoyed it very much. We saw the big 4. We didn't find the lepard. The bedrooms were so luxury and decored with love and very clean. The food was everytime very good and a big variety.

Room Tip: We had standard bedrooms and were very satisfied. Come hungry, there you will receive a lot of food!
