About Reflections Eco-Reserve

Reflections Eco-Reserve offers a luxurious, self-catering experience in a private, eco-friendly setting, tucked away within the 29-hectare natural expanse bordering Rondevlei Lake in the heart of the Garden Route. Surrounded by pristine nature, sweeping landscapes and indigenous fynbos, the reserve is the perfect location for families, friends or couples seeking a tranquil escape.

There are a number of eco-conscious and off-grid accommodation options at Reflections Eco Reserve, including view-drenched timber eco-chalets and deluxe glamping tents.

Reflections Eco-Reserve Setting

Located in the quaint seaside town of Wilderness in South Africa, just a 4.5-hour drive from Cape Town, Reflections Eco-Reserve is positioned along the shores of Rondevlei and is enveloped by the Garden Route National Park. The unique location offers easy access to a diverse range of natural attractions, including pristine beaches, lush forests, majestic mountains, exceptional birdwatching opportunities, and picturesque hiking trails — all within reach from the reserve.

Rondevlei is a vital component of a network of estuarine lakes that contribute significantly to the Garden Route's reputation as South Africa's premier holiday destination. As a designated Ramsar site, there are restrictions on boating and fishing, ensuring a serene and undisturbed environment teeming with incredible birdlife. In addition to the nesting resident Fish Eagles, our reserve proudly hosts around 140 bird species, as well as indigenous wildlife such as Cape clawless otters, water mongooses, caracals, bushpigs, grysboks, and grey duikers.

Reflections Eco-Reserve impact highlights

Reflections Eco-Reserve began its journey on 27 hectares of deteriorated pine plantation land in the Garden Route. The area was densely overgrown with invasive alien species, making it nearly impenetrable. Without delay, the owners initiated an aggressive clearing program and launched an ambitious replanting initiative to accelerate the recovery of the native vegetation.

Through extensive efforts in land restoration and rehabilitation, they have successfully planted more than 3,500 trees. The property has since expanded to cover 42 hectares within the Wilderness Lakes District of the Garden Route National Park. With the eco-chalets and luxury glamping tents, they've created an environmentally friendly, sustainable, and comfortable holiday experience just 4.5 hours away from Cape Town.
