Our Name – Gondwana

Our name derives itself from Gondwana Land, the land mass that existed one hundred and twenty million years ago.  The Outinqua and Swatberg Mountains that the reserve looks upon are the last visible evidence of the former Gondwana Land after the continent split to how we know it today.

Gondwana Land


In paleogeography, Gondwana, originally Gondwanaland, is the name given to the more southerly of two supercontinents which were part of the Pangaea supercontinent that existed from approximately 510 to 180 million years ago . Wikipedia
