Gondwana Game Reserve near Mossel Bay

African Hotels and Adventures (AHA), the tourism property management business of Tourvest’s Accommodation and Activities division has secured the full management contract for the properties on the award-winning Gondwana Game Reserve near Mossel Bay.

The 11 000-hectare reserve is the only fynbos reserve with free-roaming Big Five game.  In addition to the Big Five, the reserve is also home to many endangered species including the Cape mountain zebra, black rhino and black harrier.

The reserve’s flagship Kwena Lodge comprises 14 suites modelled after traditional Khoi-San dwellings but with a modern twist.   Each suite has views of the surrounding Outeniqua and Swartberg mountain ranges.  The suites are equipped with clay pot fireplaces, deep baths, walk-in showers and internet access. The lodge itself features a large infinity pool, open-plan lounge and bar, a dining room set around two open fireplaces and an outdoor boma.  
The property is the company’s second along the Garden Route – it manages the popular The Rex boutique hotel in Knysna.

The reserve also has several large bush villas.  These privately situated two, three and four-bedroom bush villas are ideal for families or groups looking for more space and exclusivity.  The villas can be staffed with a personal field guide, chef and butler or rented on a luxury self-catering basis.

 “This is welcome addition to our growing portfolio of boutique hotels, lifestyle retreats and game lodges and we look forward to adding considerable value to the daily operational management and marketing efforts of this reserve,” said AHA managing director Neil Bald.
