About Tented Eco Camp
The Tented Eco Camp is located centrally in Gondwana Game Reserve in a beautiful valley blanketed in Fynbos. The Tented Eco Camp offers a six day / five night conservation experience which allows guests to participate in wildlife and veld management, learn important bush skills and interpretation, as well as volunteer with the local community.
The tents are modern, eco-friendly and very comfortable. The five tents provide single or double accommodation, each with their own en-suite bathroom facilities, set on elevated decks overlooking a grass covered riverbed. A wooden walkway over the riverbed links the accommodation to a central tent, which houses the lounge, dining space and kitchen area.
The camp is remotely located in the reserve and all power is supplied by solar energy or gas. Each tent has an indoor shower and sink with hot water, as well as ablution facilities. There is also a shaded relaxation area with hammocks and outdoor lounge seating, as well as a reservoir pool to jump into after a hard day in the bush.
As the lighting is limited around the camp, it is fenced off to prevent dangerous game from moving through, so there should be no concern about danger.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included. All beverages are excluded.
A typical day at the Gondwana Eco Camp would start with a 06h00 wake up, followed by breakfast, a morning activity like cheetah tracking and then a conservation project, like surveying vegetation. This would be followed by lunch, before heading out on another eco excursion.
At around 16h00 guests would set off on an evening game monitoring drive for about two hours, then return to camp to freshen up before a hearty fireside dinner. The day would conclude with an evening talk and some prep for the next day’s activities. All this is included in the rate. Family specific weeks are also catered for.
