June 6, 2014

South African Safari Living at its Best!

Gondwana Game Reserve offers Holiday Homes for Nature Lovers, Beach Goers and Golfers alike

Mossel Bay, Garden Route: Holiday homes that perform double duties are growing in popularity.

Gondwana Game Reserve  is a luxury bush resort in the heart of the Garden Route where owners can not only seek out the ‘Big Five’ amid 27,000 acres of spectacular South African wilderness, but can easily complement their safari holiday with year-round swimming, surfing or golf. What’s more, thanks to favourable exchange rates – currently with a keen 15-plus rand to the pound – Gondwana is currently a British bargain-hunter’s dream.

Located only 30 minutes inland from the coastal town of Mossel Bay, Gondwana is the only game reserve in the Southern Cape with property for sale. Its accessible location in the Garden Route renowned for its beautiful coastline offers multiple lifestyles in one place so that people can maximise the use of their holiday home and make their investment go that bit further. Freehold title plots with 2.5 acres from only ZAR 1 million / £65,000 whilst stylish turnkey thatched lodges – with three bedrooms and a wrap-around verandah for enjoying barbecues and sundowners – are available at only ZAR 3.5 million / £228,000. Gondwana offers its Private Residence owners the ultimate luxury… space to enjoy their natural surroundings with no neighbours in sight from your home.

Gondwana is a place where the Big 5 game (lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard) roam free but where you can go surfing or golfing a few miles down the road. Gondwana has 27,000 acres of beautiful and what feels like remote African bush, with views that stretch across untouched valleys to the majestic Swartberg, Langeberg, and Outeniqua Mountain Ranges. The beach, however, is less than 30 minutes away. Mossel Bay is a charming town with a number of huge unspoilt beaches, as well as a good range of restaurants and shops for picking up groceries and top private hospitals if needed. Numerous championship seaside golf courses such as Pinnacle Point, Pezula, Oubaai and Fancourt are also within easy reach for a game of golf.  Another big draw of this location is the proximity to cosmopolitan Cape Town and the Cape Winelands which makes for a vibrant city break or wine country weekend.
