This game reserve has got very skilled guides, they will take you close to the animals without disturbing them. The guides also show great knowledge about the wildlife. It is at very large reserve and the only disturbing this is the N2 one the entrance side of the park. We stayed at "The Tree tops" which is deeper into the...

Very good overall. Unfortunately we ran into short band of poor weather which spoilt things somewhat. Knowledgeable guide, great accommodation and food. Especially liked the intimate atmosphere with Well spaced cabins.

Returning to Mark's Camp soon showed us that it was even better than the first time! Our previous visit was fun and this was no different, except better. Personal attention, friendly staff and plenty of game viewing (including 7 lion cubs) were the cherries on this cake. You will get it all and local sentiment is that this is the...

This was the best two days spent at a resort ever. The staff was over the top fantastic. We arrived late, they had dinner waiting. In the morning they had coffee and toast ready when we arrived for the game drive. When we returned from the game drive they were waiting with hot towels... I could go on and on,...

I stayed at Lalibela in Tree Tops for 4 nights and enjoyed every minute - the attention to detail was outstanding, the food, the service, the friendliness and of course the Big Five - the game drives were a fantastic experience

This was the first game reserve we have visited so we are not making any comparisons, simply commenting on what we found. We decided on a 2 night stay, perhaps not quite enough but we felt 3 might have been a little too long, the itinerary does follow a pattern and would soon get repetitious. The accommodation we chose was...

Stunning resort -we saw lions, elephants, serval, warthog, monkeys, giraffe, rhino, hyena, zebra, hippo, eland, springbok, kudu, hartebeast, secretary birds and more than I can remember. The food is good, and all dinks included, though the wine was basic but not unpleasant. The staff were very helpful; though the pillows were soft and useless but these were replaced when I...

This was our third visit to Lalibela and hopefully it won't be our last. We had a very enjoyable stay, good accommodation, good company, great food and great game drives. Our ranger was very knowledgeable and tried to show us as many animals as possible, Lions,elephant, rhino, giraffe, cheetah, zebra and lots of antelope.

We had a great 3 days stay at Lalibela and we have no hesitation in recommending it to our friends. Service, accommodation, food, game drives, all excellent. Lots of animals to see on every drive and the Ranger was knowledgeable and wonderful company.

we loved staying at Treetops. what a great room and so peaceful. the food was amazing, great local dishes freshly prepared and so much of it. Brunch was so welcome after the morning drive and sitting around the fire pit at night after dinner was a great opportunity to chat about the day's viewings. Craig was a wonderful guy, so...
