Gondwana Game Reserve on the Western Cape’s Garden Route will launch a three-day walking safari in November for groups of eight guests.
The Pioneer Trail will allow guests to explore the 11 000-hectare Big-Five game reserve on foot.
The route will cover 15 to 20 kilometres over two days, taking guests on exclusive, remote footpaths and game trails to three different remote tented camp locations.
Each night is spent in a different unfenced camp. Tents have en-suite bathrooms with claw-foot tubs, and meals are served around the campfire with G&T sundowners.
Mark Rutherfoord, Founder of Gondwana Game Reserve, said the Pioneer Trail was one of the most exciting guest experiences they had launched at Gondwana.
“Gondwana’s open grassland and fynbos landscape make it perfect for walking, and the climate suits summer activities when other parts of South Africa are too hot and humid. The trail will access areas of the game reserve that are inaccessible to vehicles, including the remote tented camp locations that are spectacular. Each occupies a different vegetation type on the game reserve,” he added.
