Lalibela Game Reserve is located in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, only an hour away from Port Elizabeth and Addo Elephant Park, which means it is not only malaria free, but spans 5 ecosystems, resulting in a breath-taking diversity of flora and fauna.
Since the new owners took over in July 2016, so much has been done on the conservation side to extend the reserve, restock it with game, eradicate areas where there was alien invasive vegetation and return the endemic bushveld to its original pristine state. With the extension, Lalibela now boasts 10,500 hectares (approximately 26,000 acres) and is home to the Big 5 (lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo & leopard) as well as other predators like cheetah, hyena, jackal & lynx. The reserve is blessed with vast African plains with multitudes of zebra, giraffe, warthog, impala, wildebeest, blesbuck and various other antelope species.
