In the ecologically diverse 7,500ha Lalibela Game Reserve
expansive plains welcome an array of antelope and act as stages for dramas with Africa’s predators, while its woodlands are alive with birds and the park’s more secretive inhabitants. Just off the N2, about an hour from Port Elizabeth
on the way to Grahamstown
, the malaria-free Big 5 safari experience found here is well within reach.
At Mark’s Camp, the reserve’s largest safari lodge, charming stone and thatch chalets and laid-back Pan-African styling are the perfect accents to this beautiful location. The lodge is famous for its abundant birdlife while the large waterhole comfortably viewed from the bar is popular among giraffe, antelope, elephants and even predators. Twice-daily game drives complete with refreshments will ferry you further afield for the best of the reserve’s spectacular game-viewing.
Up to 20 guests are accommodated in the 8 comfortable chalets featuring en suite bathrooms and ceiling fans for warm summer nights. Memorable fireside dinners and sumptuous brunches are enjoyed in the boma. An indoor dining area, lounge and 2 swimming pools, one near the waterhole, round out the facilities.
