Lodge extremely comfortable and staff superb! Food is something really special and the guides are deep knowledge about that place and animals that live there! I strongly recommend this place in South Africa.

Staying at Lalibela was a once in a lifetime experience. From the moment we set foot in the reserve until the time we left we were being taken care of. The Lodge (Mark’s Camp) was perfect and has a beautiful view over a watering hole. We only stayed 1 night but saw so many different animals including lions, rhinos, giraffe,...

We had the most amazing experience at Lalibela. The staff is so friendly and helpful, the food was Masterchef standard, the game drives got the adrenaline pumping! They cater for kiddies too. I hope we can make it a yearly visit! :)

Our stay lasted approximately 24hours and included 2 three hour drives, one evening 4-7pm and one the following morning 7-10am. The letdown has to be...

Very good value for money,especially the reduced rates in winter.Excellent staff and guides. The only critics we can state: Some of the animal-sightings are to closed to the N2 with all the traffic noise.

I travelled here in Sept of 2014 and I cannot possibly convey into words how amazing this reserve was. While traveling through Africa, and during this leg of my journey by myself, I had the privilege of staying at this reserve, Treetops camp specifically. The food and the staff were 100% on point... from our primary hostess, to my game...

We stayed for three nights with our 12 month old baby. The catering, drives, child facilities and all staff were wonderful. The only downside was the need to go on a diet afterwards! Derrick was incredibly knowledgeable and patient in finding the game. A return visit is a certainty.
