  A Sound Investment

  • The Development is over 90% sold with only 15 Home Site left from the Developer.
  • Gondwana is one of its kind as the only bush estate in the Southern Cape.
  • One hectare spacing of homes and distances between housing areas is unprecedented in lifestyle development and gives you the freedom to truly enjoy your natural surroundings
  • Gondwana Game Reserve is the last rural development of its kind in the Western Cape. New
    Provincial laws have been passed making residential development (freehold title) outside the urban
    edge virtually impossible.
