I had the delight of staying at Lalibela Game Reserve for just one night. From check-in to check-out, the experience was amazing. Food, locally sourced, all homemade (they bake all their own breads!) was fabulous. My guest suite was large yet still cozy, immaculately clean, with a private balcony. And the service. Wow, Unati, Renee and Peter were fabulous. Peter...

We had the fortunate experience of visiting Lalibela Game Reserve in May 2015. The safari experience is amazing.

Always feels like home. Staff friendly and helpful. Rangers go out there way to find game. Rooms are very nice and food to die for. Will always go back. If you looking for a game Lodge don't look any further.

We arrived at specified time, and taken with another family to our lodges. The greeting at our lodges made me want to turn around & immediately leave. The Manager was drunk beyond comprehension - dropped our drinks .... We got taken to the wrong room. We were not shown around or told the format of our stay. I wanted to...

We were a party of 5 adults who had booked 3 rooms at Tree Tops for 1 night only. We paid approx £480.00 per room which you may think expensive. However we had 2 game drives each of 3 hr. duration, plus superb accommodation, superb food and any amount of alcohol! The staff could not have been more helpful seeing...
