Wildlife, laziness and lots of eating at Gondwana Private Game Reserve in the Western Cape

Gondwana Game Reserve

A sunrise and a game drive – the life

While Europe is real pretty and I loved exploring the side streets and spending hours in cozy coffee shops reading, I can’t help but favour my beautiful home country of South Africa. I recently got sent on assignment to Gondwana Game Reserve, just outside Mosselbay in the Western Cape. It’s about four hours’ drive from Cape Town and so completely worth the drive to visit for a weekend.

We ate, we relaxed and we went on game drives to see four of the Big Five (the leopard stayed true to its illusive nature). Life really couldn’t get any better. I usually like my holidays rustic, especially the ones in summer, but I couldn’t help but indulge in the luxury treatment and beautiful little hut that we received during that weekend.
