Gondwana Pioneer Trail walking tour

General information

Gondwana Game Reserve has put together a beautiful 4-day walking tour for you! The route goes straight through the ‘Big Five’, malaria-free private reserve. You spend three nights in ‘tented fly camps’ at various places in the reserve. The tents are set up for you and your luggage is transported between the camps for you. You only carry your own daypack.

Each camp consists of four set up tents with fixed beds, ensuite bathrooms and a covered seating area outside the tent. The camps also have a lounge tent, a boma and a campfire in the evening. Maximum 8 people.

Day 1: -

Today you will arrive at the Gondwana Game Reserve, check in and enjoy lunch. You meet your ‘trail team’ and you can ask your questions. The team consists of a camp assistant and two guides and will be at your disposal throughout the trip. After you have enjoyed your lunch and you have checked in, you will receive a bag from your guide. Here you can put things you need in the coming days. You can leave your other luggage at the lodge. You will also receive a daypack, water bottles, possible walking sticks etc.

It’s time to go! The adventure is about to begin. You will be taken in an open 4×4 safari vehicle to the first tented fly camp where you will arrive in the afternoon. Perhaps you spot all your first animals along the way!

First enjoy an afternoon tea in the camp before you set off for a sundowner game drive. You drive to a beautiful place in the reserve and while enjoying a drink and a snack you can see the beautiful sunset. You drive back to the camp in the dark. This is a very special experience, because in the dark you find yourself in a completely different world. You hear all kinds of sounds that you do not hear during the day and see (hopefully) many animals that you do not see during the day! Once back at the camp you dine around the campfire and receive a briefing about the next day.
