Lalibela Game Reserve, Frontier Country, Eastern Cape
Lalibela Game Reserve an excellent choice for a Big 5 game experience in a malaria free environment for anyone travelling the famous Garden Route. Only 90km and 1 hours drive on the N2 between Port Elizabeth and Grahamstown, the 7,500ha reserve is made up of valley bushveld, savannah grassland, fynbos, riverine forest and acacia woodland, all coming together to make Lalibela the ideal home for the Big 5 in Southern Africa. All the animals, including the predators, roam freely throughout the entire reserve.
Game drives in an open vehicle with an experienced game ranger bring you face to face with a multitude of game species, from our two lion prides, the mighty elephant, rhino and buffalo to tiny blue duiker and rock hyrax. Lalibela is also home to cheetah, hyena, hippo, giraffe, zebra, warthog and numerous species of antelope, such as eland, kudu, bushbuck and wildebeest. On thrilling night drives under the vast African sky, we search for the elusive bat-eared fox, aardvark, black-backed jackal, aardwolf and the curious spring hare.
We pride ourselves on our ability to offer you the best in Big 5 game viewing.
