A luxury tented camp raised on solid wooden decks to look out above the trees over a secluded wooded valley, Treetops Safari Lodge offers an intimate safari experience within Lalibela Game Reserve. Conveniently located in South Africa’s malaria-free Eastern Cape at the end of the Garden Route, it combines the close to nature romance of an African safari with easy access and all the comforts in an idyllic setting. Lalibela focuses on conservation and has a wide variety of habitats that support all the Big 5 and much more, with prolific birdlife to view from your private deck.
The five luxury tents are more like chalets with their thatched roofs, canvas sides, huge windows, air-conditioning, wifi and spacious wooden decks. There are spectacular unspoilt views over the treetops from the en-suite rooms and each is joined to the main lodge by raised wooden walkways, so you really do feel on top of the world. Here there is a spacious lounge and dining room, also thatched and open to the views and the waterhole below where elephant may come to drink. There is a further deck with the small swimming pool where guests can relax between game drives and continue to gaze at the views, perhaps even spotting the beautiful Knysna Lourie flitting between trees.
Plentiful, thoughtfully- prepared meals are served on the open deck in summer, or around the fire in winter, at one long table, so guests have plenty of opportunity to socialise and enjoy the company of the guides in a relaxed informal setting.
Two game drives a day explore the reserve and its different eco-systems with sightings of all the big cats, elephant and giraffe, zebra and antelope, hippos, rhinos and too many more to list. The 7,500ha (18,500 acre) reserve is large enough to support a wide variety of wildlife, but not so large that you need to drive all day to find them and the experienced guides safely bring guests close enough for the best game-viewing. Altogether Lailibela Treetops offers value-for money luxury and is all about a truly memorable safari experience.
