Gondwana Game Reserve is the only free ranging Big 5 private wildlife reserve in the Southern Cape – home to the lion, black rhinoceros, eland, red hartebeest, endangered Cape Mountain Zebra, springbok, kudu, as well as the elephant, among others.
Our expert field guides will reveal African wildlife to Gondwana’s guests on game drives set in a Cape fynbos environment. This is a truly unique safari experience which includes exhilarating encounters with endangered species such as the cheetah, cape mountain zebra and black rhinoceros.
More than 10 species of antelope can be found in the wildlife game reserve including kudu, eland, gemsbok, bontebok, Grey Reebok and many more. The free roaming Big Five also keep things interesting, with regular visits from elephants and lions that casually stroll by the wildlife game lodge. The reserve has introduced new key species such as hippo and cheetah while 2012 saw the first giraffes finally taking their first steps on Gondwana soil. We anticipate brown hyena to be happily hunting in the reserve before the year is out.
The vastness of the wildlife game reserve, coupled with the area’s excellent climate and terrain, make the land well suited to multiple species of game which are frequently seen by the wildlife game lodge guests. The reserve also accommodates the rare and endangered black rhinoceros – a first in the Western Cape.
Gondwana’s wildlife population is thriving, with numerous offspring from zebra, eland, wildebeest and gemsbok, in particular. Book your stay with Gondwana today and experience the joys of our breathtaking wildlife game reserve firsthand.
