Exclusive private villa situated within the malaria-free Lalibela Game Reserve

Mills Manor offers a completely private safari getaway for the whole family. Thoroughly relax as everything gets taken care of by a private game ranger, chef, and housekeeper. This historic farmhouse can take up to 10 guests, and everyone can spend their time around the pool and sundeck, or large fire pit and barbeque area at night.

The larger Lalibela Game Reserve area has a primary focus on conserving indigenous flora and fauna whilst taking into account the local community.

Stay Location


Best time to go to Eastern Cape Game Reserves

The Eastern Cape has a Goldilocks climate – not too hot, not too cold – with plenty of sunshine, making it a prime year-round destination. The best time to visit for wildlife viewing is in the dry winter season from May to September as the foliage is sparse and animals flock to water sources. The winter nights can be very cold, so you will need your fleece and beanie. Between October and April, reserves are busier owing to the warm weather. You can also enjoy an abundance of baby animals, spring flowers and migratory birds during this period.
