Gondwana Game Reserve is about to open its new tented eco camp, promising a close and rewarding connection with the free-roaming wildlife and the beautiful fynbos of the Garden Route – just 4-5 hours out of Cape Town. The new eco-safari experience at Gondwana will have its emphasis is on active participation in conservation.
The Gondwana Eco Camp Experience
A six-day / five-night conservation experience includes participation in wildlife and veld management, mastery of some bush skills and interpretation, as well as volunteer-experiences in the local community. There will also be programmes suitable for families travelling with children.
A typical day at the Eco Camp will start with a 6am wake-up, followed by breakfast, and then a morning activity like cheetah tracking. This will be followed by a conservation project such as surveying vegetation. After lunch there will be another eco excursion, and at around 4pm guests will depart on an evening game-monitoring drive for about two hours, returning to camp for a hearty fireside dinner. The day will end with an evening talk and some preparation for the next day’s activities.
Eco Camp Tented Accommodation
Five tents provide single or double accommodation in a remote part of the Gondwana Reserve. The tents are set on raised decks overlooking a grass-covered riverbed, and each has an en-suite bathroom. A wooden walkway over the riverbed links the accommodation to a central tent housing the lounge and dining area. There is also a shaded relaxation area with hammocks and outdoor lounge seating, as well as a reservoir pool. The camp is fenced to deter dangerous animals from entering.
Replenish energies on hearty, home-style food, and participate in barbeques and potjie-cooking.
