Staying at Ulubisi House at Gondwana Game Reserve


I first stayed at Gondwana Game Reserve in 2017, in one of their Kwena Huts, when I moved to South Africa. It was my first African Safari and has held a special place in my heart ever since.

So much so, that we bring all of our guests on my all-female tours in South Africa here!

For anyone traveling to Cape Town or planning to drive the Garden Route who wants to experience a safari, Gondwana Game Reserve is the perfect destination. Located about a 5-hour drive from Cape Town, guests can experience the thrill of a Big 5 safari without having to travel far.

Though I no longer live in South Africa, we return every year. Most recently, we brought our 8-month-old son “home” with us and we couldn’t wait to take him on his first safari.

So, we stayed at Ulubisi House, Gondwana’s luxurious private villa—complete with your own personal Butler, Chef, and Field Guide!
