Lalibela Game Reserve


Face-to-face with Lalibela’s wildlife


7,500ha of riverine forest, acacia woodland, fynbos and valley merge together to form the exquisite Lalibela Game Reserve. With five of The Eastern Cape’s seven biomes, Lalibela is able to sustain a wide variety of plant, animal and bird life. Predator and prey roam freely proffering thrilling game-viewing opportunities when the two collide.

Day and night game drives offer a glimpse into the habits of these animals as they emerge from their slumber. Guests will be treated to sightings of the Big 5, giraffe, cheetah, hippo and antelope as they roam across the plains. With nightfall, lynx, hyena and jackal ready themselves for the hunt. Animals flock to the waterhole in the afternoons to quench their thirst and visitors will be thrilled to watch elephants drink and play in the shallow waters along the river bank. Zebra drink cautiously, aware that danger lurks in the shadows while the giraffe performs an awkward bow in order to reach the water. 

Secluded thatched chalets overlook the valley where nature’s indigenous gardens merge. The private observation deck offers a perfect vantage point from which to spot wandering game as they make their way slowly across the plains, stopping briefly to nibble on lush greens. The area is malaria free, making it a popular stop on the scenic Garden Route.
