Family school holiday safari special

September 7, 2012


Gondwana’s Fynbos Spring Special is Ideal for the Upcoming School Holidays!

Sunshine, fun and a blooming special is how Gondwana Game Reserve is celebrating Spring just in time for the school holidays.
With the winter quickly turning to spring, visitors to the Garden Route’s only Fynbos reserve that also boasts the Big Five will see the wonderful colours of a seasonal shift amidst a breath-taking landscape.
For only R1950 per person per night and R650 per child aged between 4 and 12), guests to the reserve will enjoy luxury accommodation, gourmet breakfast, high tea and dinner. They will also have two exhilarating game drives per day in the 11,000 hectare reserve with snacks and drinks included. If that is not enough, this special entitles each guest to a R100 Africology spa voucher to really get that pampered feeling going.
This Five Star reserve is big on kids as well and offers a fantastic Junior Ranger Program that keeps your little ones engaged in nature. Kids of all ages are welcome at Gondwana Game Reserve and families are booked into the reserve’s Private Bush Villas for their comfort and convenience with additional amenities like kitchen facilities, separate en-suite bedrooms, large outdoor decks, flat screen TVs and DVD players to assist with the little ones.

As part of the Junior Ranger program, Children will receive a fun Ranger’s backpack and cool safari booklet to fill in throughout their stay. During game drives and other  activities with their ranger, they will be taught how to identify mammals, birds, Fynbos species, and even stars, gaining a greater understanding of conservation and our precious eco systems. The participants will be quizzed on what they’ve learned by their ranger and receive a level 1 Junior Ranger Patch and completion certificate, as well as a picture with their ranger for their safari book.

A fun kid’s menu is always on offer and when Junior Rangers go to sleep, they’ll find a goodnight story and a yummy treat waiting for them.   Loads of other activities are available such as horse safaris, fishing, bush picnics, and more.
Gondwana is easily accessible and only a 4 hour drive from Cape Town or a 45 minutes from George Airport.   Yet once on the property, you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere as there is no light, noise, or visual pollution – just vast open spaces. The Outeniqua and Langeberg Mountain ranges surround the reserve to the North and provide a spectacular backdrop to top off the aesthetic delights of the colourful Fynbos landscape.
Gondwana is reaching out to all Cape Tonians to try us this winter and take advantage of our Blooming Spring Special valid until October 8th. Whether you are a couple or a family, you can count on a truly magical nature experience that is both luxurious and peaceful.
