About Gondwana Private Game Reserve

Along the Garden Route of South Africa just 4 hours from Cape Town you will find 11 000 hectares of indigenous fynbos and free roaming big 5 game, home to the lion, black rhinoceros, eland, red hartebeest, endangered Cape Mountain Zebra, springbok, kudu, as well as elephant, among others.

Did you know? The Gondwana reserve gets its name from the original land mass that existed one hundred and twenty million years ago called “Gondwanaland”.

The unique vegetation on the Gondwana Private Game reserve consists of both Fynbos and grass plains which is arguably the most beautiful in the world. The Fynbos resembles wild flowers and is endemic to the Western Cape which is found nowhere else in the world. Here you will find plant species such as Proteas, Erica’s, and Restios which provide much colour and beauty to the reserve.

The Gondwana reserve gets its name from the original land mass that existed one hundred and twenty million years ago called “Gondwanaland”. Africa was formed after this Land mass broke up into different continents. The last bit of visible evidence of the 100 million year old land mass is the Outeniqua and Swartberg mountain ranges which surround the reserve.

When the Gondwana Game reserve was developed, much care and consideration was taken in reducing the impact on the environment and kept areas of indigenous vegetation protected and untouched. Processes are in place to remove all alien invasive plants that may harm this natural vegetation. The water system and supply at Gondwana is completely self-sufficient as it uses its own streams and has water restrictions in place.

Before the development of the reserve, it was home to three sheep and cattle farms and was chosen for its conservation value and viability to support wildlife. By developing the reserve, Gondwana contributes to the conservation of the critically endangered fynbos species such as Renoster thicket and Blanco Fynbos Renosterveld.
