“Winning a World Travel Award (WTA) is the highest commendation in the travel and tourism industry and this triumph serves as a testament to your hard work and commitment to excellence over the last 12 months,” said Graham E Cooke, chairman and founder of the World Travel Awards, to Mark Rutherford, owner of Gondwana Game Reserve.

Gondwana - a five-star game reserve on the Western Cape’s Garden Route and the only Fynbos nature reserve that also prides itself on being home to the free roaming Big Five - won the judges’ vote as South Africa's Leading Nature Experience for 2012. 

We have made a concerted effort to develop and promote Gondwana’s complete nature experience beyond the wildlife and game drive experience”, says Mark Rutherfoord.  “The reserve’s 1000 hectare protected area gives us a fantastic facility to get up close and personal with nature whether on horseback, on foot or on a bike.  We are continually developing our trails network with points of interest for the whole family.  We bring the Fynbos into all points of contact with the guest – through the housekeeping, the interior design, the cuisine, and the Junior Ranger Program.  We are truly fortunate the reserve is situated in a Fynbos biome and feel honoured we can help protect the critically endangered Cape Floral Kingdom.” 

The reserve is an easy four-hour drive from Cape Town and only 45 minutes from George Airport. This wealth of wildlife and diversity of colourful Fynbos vegetation makes Gondwana Game Reserve a nature lover’s paradise. Relaxation and luxury while enjoying all the wonders of South Africa’s wildlife and spectacular landscape is what the Gondwana experience is all about. Not to mention the numerous nature activities on offer including exhilarating game drives, horse safaris, mountain biking, birding endemic species such as the Cape Sugar bird and Orange breasted sunbird, and the fun Junior Ranger Program which sees kids learning and loving nature!

Once on the property, guests appreciate not just the gourmet meals, but the pristine natural setting. The Outeniqua and Langeberg mountain ranges to the north provide a spectacular backdrop for the colourful Fynbos-blanketed landscape. Guests often say you can hear the silence

Wide open spaces offer food for body, mind and soul.
