Standard Big 5 Walking Safari
In addition to game drives, guests have the option of booking a Big 5 Walking Safari during their stay at Lalibela. A walking safari, led by our qualified rangers, offers a unique and rewarding authentic experience of the African bush. While searching for wildlife, your guide will also point out animal tracks, dung and birds which will give you a unique understanding of the fauna and flora indigenous to the region.
* No children under the age of 18 years are allowed to participate in a Big 5 Walk. 16 & 17 year old’s are at the discretion of the Head Ranger.
Soft Walking Safaris
Not only did the “Big 5 area” of Lalibela increase in size, but the acquisition of an additional 2,000 hectares adjacent to the existing Big 5 area, means that Lalibela now has a pristine wilderness range that will be used as a breeding area, and to reintroduce endemic game species to the Eastern Cape.
In this new predator-free area, “soft” walking safaris have been introduced. This breeding area offers a more relaxed “on foot” safari experience for the whole family where you can get up close and personal with game such as zebra, giraffe, warthog and various antelope in a safe environment.
*Big 5 Walking Safaris & The Soft Walking Safaris need to be booked on arrival or during your stay at Lalibela as they are weather dependent.
* Guests need to be staying overnight for a minimum of a 2 night stay.
*Guests to settle the cost directly with the lodge.
