Gondwana Game Reserve Gondwana Game Reserve

Gondwana Launched Hands-on Botanical Conservation Experience

With the richest temperate flora in the world and a myriad of rare, critically endangered species, Gondwana Game Reserve, on South Africa’s Garden Route is a bucket list destination not just for a Big Five safari, but also for anyone with an interest in botany and biodiversity.

This April, Gondwana will launched a Fynbos Conservation Experience which includes a guided nature walk lead by their resident botanist.

Among the 1000 plant, 118 bird, 29 mammal and 21 amphibian species coexisting in this 11,000 hectares of pristine wilderness, participants are bound to uncover fascinating stories as they help monitor and map the types found on the game reserve.

The new hands-on experience will give guests a chance to learn about the conservation of the rare and endangered Fynbos biome, affording them the opportunity to get a more up-close understanding of the stunning indigenous flora and fauna. The activity takes two to three hours and is offered daily in the downtime between morning and evening game drives.

Participants will assist experts in their research conducted in different monitoring zones throughout the reserve, learning identification, monitoring parameters and geo-mapping of the thousands of Fynbos plant species found on the reserve.
