Gondwana Game Reserve’s Eco Camp

Gondwana Game Reserve’s Eco Camp offers close encounters of the wildlife kind, just a few hours out of Cape Town. Gondwana is an 11 000 hectare private game reserve on the Garden Route, and it is the only fynbos reserve in the world where the Big Five roam freely.

The three or five day conservation experience allows guests to participate in wildlife and veld management, learn valuable bush skills and interpretation, as well as volunteer with the local community. The Eco Camp itinerary is based on creating a meaningful conservation experience for individuals of any age. From the tented camp itself through to participatory meals and activities, everyone has a chance to get their hands dirty while learning new skills, and hopefully, having a lot of fun as well”.

A typical day at the Gondwana Eco Camp would start with a 6 am wake-up, followed by breakfast, a morning activity like cheetah tracking and then a conservation project, like surveying vegetation. This would be followed by lunch, before heading out on another eco-excursion. At around 4 pm guests would set off on an evening game monitoring drive for about two hours, then return to camp to freshen up before a hearty fireside dinner. The day would conclude with an evening talk and some prep for the next day’s activities, then some well-deserved rest in the cosy tents.

The Eco Camp’s tents are modern, eco-friendly and very comfortable. The five tents provide single or double accommodation, each with their own en-suite bathroom facilities, set on elevated decks overlooking a grass-covered riverbed. A wooden walkway over the riverbed links the accommodation to a central tent, which houses the lounge, dining space and kitchen area.
