Big 5 Safari at Lalibela

Malaria-free Safari in the Eastern Cape, South Africa

We pride ourselves on our ability to offer you the best in Big 5 game viewing. At Lalibela we are blessed to have phenomenal sightings of the Big 5 as well as the various other species that visitors so enjoy seeing.
In addition to the larger, more known wild animals, Lalibela has various lesser-known species and our rangers delight in exposing our guests to these - the curious spring hare is as fascinating as the mighty African elephant!

Apart from the wide variety of wildlife, there is a plethora of birdlife to be found on Lalibela - the keen birder can expect to spot birds on safari, at the lodge or even from the viewing deck of their room!
