It’s one thing to enjoy a safari while on holiday, but it’s quite another to live the lifestyle every day.

With Gondwana Game Reserve’s private residences, game reserve living can easily become a reality. With one hectare private home sites available from R800 000 and fully furnished deluxe bush villas from R4 000 000, there are numerous investment opportunities.

Only a few residences remain within the 5-star game reserve, located just a few hours away from Cape Town, on 11 000 hectares of pristine land. Gondwana is the only fynbos reserve in the world that is home to the free roaming big five, as well as many other wild species and an abundance of birdlife – not to mention the world’s richest floral kingdom, too. The reserve is home to fifteen antelope species including eland, red hartebeest, kudu, Gemsbok, Sable and seventeen carnivore species ranging from the Small Spotted Genet, Caracal to the very large and powerful Lion. The residences offer endless views of the spectacular landscape surrounded by the Outeniqua Mountains and passing wildlife. There are five residence camps within the reserve, each located several kilometres apart. Each camp is at least 300 hectares in size and is fenced for safety and freedom of movement, with plains game able to roam freely. The undulating landscape is lush and green all year round and home to over 2000 floral species; natural beauty is everywhere you turn.

All houses have been developed to seamlessly fit in to the surrounding natural environment, with thatched roofs and earth-toned paint exteriors. Interiors have been designed with safari living in mind – easy open plan, double volume living areas, folding windowed doors that open onto large decks to easily merge the indoors with the outdoors. Gondwana offers turnkey plot and plan designs or you may design your own dream bush home within the architectural guidelines of nature.

The first of its kind in the Western Cape, Gondwana Game Reserve offers the chance to own a bush home in a private, Big Five game reserve with 5 star amenities and the ultimate luxury . . . space to enjoy your natural surroundings. The reserve is ideally and accessibly located in the world famous Garden Route just 4 hours’ drive from Cape Town and 45 minutes from George Airport with nearby charming coastal towns of Mossel Bay and Knysna, pristine beaches and top golf courses such as Pinnacle Point and Fancourt to explore. The Mediterranean climate affords prime year round game viewing and is recorded as the second most moderate climate in the World next to Hawaii. Despite the reserve’s proximity to Mossel Bay, it is secluded and remote giving a feeling of being in the middle of nowhere with no light or noise pollution.Property owners have direct access to Lehele Lodge, a luxurious Afro-chic Clubhouse; the perfect spot to enjoy sundowners after a game drive, enjoy a rugby game or have a dip in the infinity pool. The reserve offers a complete nature experience with outdoor activities including game drives with expert field guides in open game viewing vehicles, bird watching, bush picnics, fishing, hiking, and mountain biking in the reserve’s 1000 hectare protected walking area which is home to the endangered Cape Mountain Zebra and Bontebok as well as giraffe and many other non-dangerous game species.
