Lalibela Mark's Camp | Lalibela Game Reserve

Lalibela private game reserve comprises three lodges within 7,500ha of Big Five malaria-free bushveld. Game drives in an open vehicle with an experienced game ranger bring you face to face with a range of game, from mighty elephant, lion, rhino and buffalo to tiny blue duiker and rock hyrax. Night drives focus on the elusive bat-eared fox, aardvark, black-backed jackal and aardwolf. All of the animals, including the predators, are free-roaming throughout the entire reserve which spans five eco-systems, (valley bushveld, savannah grassland, fynbos, riverine forest and acacia woodland), resulting in a huge diversity of fauna and flora. African wild dogs, spotted hyena and more lion have also been reintroduced to Lalibela.

Between game drives, you can relax in the large lounge, bird watch from the viewing decks or laze around one of the two swimming pools, one for all ages and one more secluded pool which is reserved for adults. Mark's Camp also has an outdoor dining boma for fireside dinners and open-air brunches, as well as a rather festive dining area. At Lalibela, food is true safari cuisine with an emphasis on local specialties, ranging from centuries-old recipes to exciting contemporary African dishes.

Mark's Camp is all about family safaris. It lies approx 30 mins drive into the reserve from the reception lodge. The main lodge is decorated in a relaxed Pan-African style. The lodge sleeps up to 20 guests in 8 chalets, four of which are family chalets. Each comfortably furnished chalet has an en suite bathroom with a ceiling fan for those warm summer nights. Each opens up onto a private deck with views over the waterhole. They have a choice of three family rooms and a two bedroom family chalet. The family rooms have a small children's area with two built in beds separated with a reed partition from the parent's bedroom. There is also a larger two bedroom family chalet with has a small sitting area which can also accommodate extra children so this is ideal for a family with 3 or more kids or a family party.


Children under the age of 8 are not allowed on adult game drives, but are fully supervised and entertained with their own special 'kiddies drives' and various other games and activities. The kiddies drive generally departs one hour after the adult game drive in the morning with baby sitters getting the kids ready in the morning (once the kids get to know the Lalibela staff). Similarly it returns one hour earlier at night allowing the children to have supper at a reasonable time. During the day, activities for children are filled with creative African arts and crafts and bush skills : candle making and beading to tracking spoor around the lodge, making plaster cast moulds of the spoor and painting them. Younger children eat earlier, whilst parents are out on a game drive and then when parents return from their game drive, the younger children can enjoy roasting marshmallows over the fire and listen to exciting stories of Africa. There is also a specially designated play area, with paddling pool and jungle gym.listen to exciting stories of Africa, its people and the wildlife whilst parents enjoy dinner.
