At just under five hours from Cape Town (including a long and particularly bumpy stretch along a dirt road), Gondwana might just be pushing your limits for how far you'll want to drive—but as soon as you arrive and take in the views over the pool, you'll be glad you came. The scenery, made up of hills cloaked in vegetation unique to this part of South Africa, is breathtaking, and while the game viewing can feel a bit sparse at times in the sprawling 26,000-acre reserve, you can always count on a beautiful vista to keep your attention between lion and rhino sightings. Families should spring for the luxury bush villas, with two or three bedrooms and a massive dining and living area.
