Tented Eco Camp
3 & 5 Night Conservation Experience
“A one of a kind conservation tourism experience for individuals, families or groups who want to get more involved in Africa on their safari“
This is your chance to get involved with the important conservation work of a Big Five game reserve and not only enjoy but contribute.
3 & 5 Day Conservation Experience
Gondwana’s Eco Camp offers guests a tangible and authentic wildlife conservation experience, making it a holiday with a difference! The itinerary sees guests participating in wildlife and veld management, learning important bush skills and interpretation, all while enjoying a Big 5 safari experience. This new offering has filled a gap in the safari market letting guests get a behind-the-scenes understanding of the conservation work that happens on a game reserve while still enjoying a relaxing and enriching holiday in nature.
Beyond the wildlife experiences, the tented camp itself is anything but average – the tents are modern, eco-friendly and very comfortable. Each of the five tents, set on elevated decks overlooking a grass-covered riverbed, provides single or double accommodation, with its own en-suite bathroom facility and covered deck. A wooden walkway over the riverbed links the accommodation to a main tent, which houses the lounge, dining spaces and kitchen area as well as a nearby relaxation area with a pool and hammocks. The entire camp runs on solar power and sources its water from a nearby perennial spring.
Eco Camp is a fantastic experience and a great opportunity to get to do Game Drive but also learn so much more about the conservation work that is being done and what all the factors are that make a Game Reserve self sustainable. I think we were a great group and we got to make a lot of new friends in the short time we spent together. Brendan is an amazing Guide and answered all our many many questions with a lot of patience and enthusiasm. Abo’s cooking is to die for! All the meals were absolutely delicious and I really do miss having someone who cooks me an amazingly delicious breakfast every morning. We just had a fantastic time and I will tell all my friends about how great a stay at Eco Camp and Gondwana in general is! A big THANK YOU to all the staff at Eco Camp, but also Kwena Lodge and Reception and everyone who is working through and with this pandemic and still doing everything possible to give the best experience to the guests.Nicole, Tented Eco Camp Guest
