Corporate Events

Situated in the heart of the Garden Route, Gondwana Game Reserve offers 11,000 hectares of dramatic terrain with free roaming Big 5 and awe-inspiring scenery that will stir your senses. It is the perfect venue for a range of events including executive getaways, corporate functions, conferences and team building.

The reserve is about four hours drive from Cape Town or 45 minutes from George airport, making it an accessible choice for corporate functions. Despite being only 15 minutes off the N2, once you reach the reserve it will feel as if you are in the middle of nowhere – endless mountain views and green rolling hills abound, all blanketed in colourful fynbos offering well over 1000 varieties.


The reserve boasts two luxury lodges – Kwena Lodge is a five star bush lodge with 14 stand-alone suites and Lehele Lodge is a thatched, boutique conference centre. There are 10 private bush villas on the reserve with three and four en-suite bedrooms. They can be utilised for smaller, strategic sessions or accommodate corporate team building. We can tailor make overnight, full day and half day conferencing packages to suit the needs of various kinds of corporate retreats.

Gondwana Game Reserve’s Lehele Lodge is the ideal venue for you, whether you are holding a large corporate function, a small conference, or an executive breakaway.  Lehele boasts experienced staff who will not only tailor-make your function but will also handle all the logistics from the décor, media needs, office support, catering and guest entertainment to all the little extras that will make the event unforgettable such as game drives in the Big 5 reserve, wine tastings, 4×4 driving course, or a bush picnic or braai.
