Lalibela Game Reserve is a haven for South Africa’s most iconic animals, as you will see by riding a 4x4 safari vehicle through this sprawling natural habitat.

Depart from the pier by coach and make the 90-minute drive to the Lalibela Game Reserve, a beautiful expanse of approximately 18,500 acres. Being the only private game reserve in the Eastern Cape without public roads running through it, Lalibela offers the animals a completely natural environment. With six different types of vegetation regions, the reserve supports an abundance of wildlife, including the Big Five: the lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, leopard and rhinoceros. But that only touches upon the animals happily roaming about. Sightings of zebra, giraffe, antelope, and hippopotamus are also common.

You will spend a full three hours riding through the terrain in a 4x4 vehicle, which is uncovered for ideal game viewing and picture taking. The game ranger knows where the animals are most prevalent and will bring you face to face with many of the most popular beasts in all of South Africa. You may even see some of the lesser-known species that live in the reserve, such as the highly social, black-faced vervet monkey and the serval, a medium-size cat related to the lion. After this breathtaking, once-in-a-lifetime experience, you will relax over a lovely buffet luncheon at the Lalibela Restaurant. Afterward, you will re-board your coach and travel back to the ship.

Please note: This tour is primarily panoramic in nature with very limited optional walking at the stops. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns. Guests must be able to enter and exit the 4x4 with limited assistance. The roads in the game reserve are gravel and there are inclines that will be traversed and certain parts of the game-drive can be bumpy; therefore, the tour is not recommended for guests with back and neck problems. Weather appropriate clothing; sunglasses; binoculars; and flat, comfortable shoes are recommended. Only local currency (South African Rand) is accepted in the curio shop. For safety reasons, no children under the age of 6 years are allowed on the open vehicles. No food may be taken into the reserve on the open vehicles. Guests are not permitted to use cellular phones during the game drives. They are also not permitted to speak loudly or stand up on the game drive vehicles, as this will disturb the animals. Smoking is not permitted during the game-drives. There will be a comfort stop upon entering the park and at the restaurant. There are no restrooms on the coach. Wildlife sightings are not guaranteed.
