Timeless hills covered in magnificent fynbos undulate across this beautiful Big 5 reserve. The first of its kind in the Western Cape, Gondwana Game Reserve lies only 30km from the charming coastal town of Mossel Bay and yet is a world of its own once you are within its boundaries. What makes this reserve even more unique and exciting is the fact that it offers you the chance to own a stylish bush home amongst the herds of animal roaming this 11 000 hectare reserve.  

Started in 2005, Gondwana boasts the Big 5 as well as numerous other wildlife species such as Wildebeest, Kudu, Eland, Zebra and more as well as a luscious clubhouse for home owners / guests and a Five Star Hotel – the ”Kwena Huts” for those wanting a well deserved rest in an unspoilt environment. Game Rangers are on hand for a game drive experience amidst the indigenous fynbos and grassland where various bird and animal species are common sight.

Homesites are situated across the reserve on plateaus offering breathtaking views and exclusivity. Each homesite is surrounded by ample undeveloped land allowing for spectacular views of wildlife, nature and the majestic Outeniqua & Langeberg Mountain Ranges that stretch like an enormous canvas beyond the borders of the reserve.
