Lalibela Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape is converting a 1902 historic farmhouse into a five-bedroom hillside private villa, scheduled to open on August 15. At the same time, Lalibela will reopen its completely refurbished Lentaba Lodge, which closed mid May. 

The Edwardian-style farmhouse is positioned on a hill overlooking a waterhole, and will suit families or friends looking to book out an entire safari lodge for exclusive use.

Facilities will include a bar, lounge and dining room, a swimming pool, sun deck, fire pit and barbecue area where alfresco dinners can be served. 

Accommodation comprises five double, or twin bedrooms, all en suite. The villa can accommodate a maximum of ten guests.

A private game ranger, vehicle, chef and housekeeper are all on the property to cater for guests’ needs.

The overnight rate is inclusive of two game drives, all meals and drinks.
