Lentaba Lodge is located in the 10,500 Lalibela Game Reserve. Lalibela's location in the Eastern Cape is not only malaria-free, but spans 5 ecosystems, resulting in a wide diversity of flora and fauna.
Known as the 'Lodge on the Hillside', Lentaba boasts a large lounge, viewing deck and a sunny swimming pool where you can spend a lazy afternoon in-between game drives.
There is also a waterhole, which is spotlit after dark for night game viewing.
Early morning and sunset game drives in an open game viewing vehicle with an experienced game ranger bring you face to face with a multitude of game species including the Big 5, as well as hippo, giraffe, zebra, warthog and numerous species of antelope such as eland, kudu, bushbuck and wildebeest.
All of the animals, including the predators, are free-roaming throughout the entire reserve.
The lodge offers 8 secluded thatched chalets, each with air conditioning and a private observation deck to make the most of the views over the valley bushveld.
There is an outdoor dining 'boma' for fireside dinners and open-air brunches in the summer months, as well as a gracious indoor dining area.
In the evenings, guests are entertained by the resident African Dance Group before enjoying their evening meal.
Special offers for longer stays or when booked as part of a longer itinerary may apply - details on request.
