The highlight of our holiday was definitely a stay at Gondwana Game Reserve. This luxury game lodge is situated just outside Mossel Bay on the Garden Route and gives you a real taste of safari life. We were blown away by the friendly staff and service, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay despite the heat wave!
If you decide to visit, be sure to treat yourself to a spa treatment and and ask to have Christiaan as your field guide. His knowledge about wildlife and nature is incredible and his enthusiasm is simply contagious. We chose to spend our New Year’s Eve at Gondwana and Christiaan took our group out on an unforgettable night game drive. What a unique experience!
We stayed in one of the Kwena huts which are centred around the swimming pool with beautiful views of the valley.
The Kwena Huts each have a skylight, so be warned, during summer you will be woken up at the crack of dawn!
I really loved the decor and interiors at Gondwana. The look is relaxed and casual with plenty of textures and organic elements.
