I was traveling to South Africa and came across the Gondwana reserve. I was so taken in by the advertising.... The experience from landing at the reserve to the exit was phenomenal :-). I was recieved at the entrance by friendly staff, and a welcome choco drink. A private tour of the property followed by a lovely 3 course lunch, amazing chef choices along with a great wine accompaniment. The property was awesome inviting you to just relax ...i was sorry that i was just spending one night. The Game drives conducted by "forget" were even more amazing... and met some great people... who made my solo trip most memorable. I think this place is total value for money in this part of South Africa. To top it all, i had a facial at the in house spa. It was splendid, never had such a nice treatment...The "Back to Nature" facial comes highly recommended.
