Gondwana Game Reserve

About Gondwana Game Reserve

Set amidst rolling hills and indigenous fynbos, Gondwana started six years ago with Mark and Wendy Rutherfoord's dream of transforming cattle and sheep farms into an 11 000-hectare eco-safari destination. Only 4 hours from Cape Town along the Garden Route, and now restored to its natural beauty of open grasslands, undulating valleys and fynbos.

Herds of eland, gemsbok, red hartebeest, bontebok and springbok have been re-introduced as well as the endangered Cape Mountain Zebra and rare black rhino. More recently hippo and cheetah have joined the lion, elephant and buffalo populations.

The unique and eye-catching Xhosa-styled Kwena Lodge is the highlight of your stay. Thatched beehive huts with chic and spacious interiors dotted on the hillside, each open-plan suite has clay pot fire places, deep baths, sky lights for star gazing and a patio to enjoy the panoramic view. After a day's safari in a Landrover, on foot or on horseback return to a boma barbeque or elegant lodge dinner.

Fynbos Camp Villas offer a luxury self-catering or catered option ideal for families or groups with en-suite bedrooms, spacious lounge and expansive viewing deck. With sweeping views and organic style, the nearby Lehele Lodge is a separate venue for weddings and conferences.
