About Gondwana Pioneer Trail

Gondwana Pioneer Trail accommodation in Mossel Bay is offered for those keen on an exciting three night walking trail traversing through the private, Big five, 11 000 hectare, malaria free game reserve. The trail takes you to three remote tented fly camp locations with two full days of hiking. Your expert trail guides will intimately expose you to the Reserve’s unique biodiversity and eco systems while experiencing the Big Five and multiple species of antelope on foot.

Gondwana’s Pioneer Trail is the ultimate slack packing adventure where your belongings are moved daily between the three camps, allowing you to experience the dramatic Fynbos landscape with only a light day pack.

Each exclusive camp is comprised of four tents with en-suite bathrooms sleeping a maximum of eight guests. Homemade African inspired meals are catered for you with cold beverages on tap.
