The Lalibela Reserve comprises of 75 square kilometres of pretty undulating grasslands, punctuated by steep wooded valleys, well stocked with all the major wildlife species.
The camp is tucked away in one of these valleys and consists of five thatch and canvas rooms raised high on stilts and connected by elevated walkways. Central areas include a cosy lounge and outside dining area, as well as a pool. It's a really decent lodge with an unusually authentic safari atmosphere.
Activities are centred around vehicle safaris.
- safari here is relatively tame
- fenced reserve
- reclaimed farmland
- proximity of the main N2 highway
- proximity of human habitation
- relatively expensive
Guests do need to appreciate that this is not truly wild country, but an ongoing project of land rehabilitation.
