The free roaming Big 5 species also keep things interesting with many visits to the lodge from the elephants and lions! Gondwana is home to 17 carnivore species ranging from the small grey mongoose and small-spotted genet to medium-sized species such as the caracal and bat-eared fox, to the very large and powerful lion.

Gondwana’s Endangered and Protected Species Area is 1000 ha and home to the endangered Bontebok, Cape Mountain Zebra and sable. Guests can also enjoy informative Fynbos walks with their field guide and explore the diversity of our fynbos plants, as well as endemic birdlife that occurs nowhere else in the world, such as the Black Harrier and Orange Breasted Sunbird.

The vastness of Gondwana, coupled with the area’s excellent climate and terrain, make the reserve well suited to multiple species of game which are frequently seen by guests.
