Gourikwa Reserve Gourikwa Reserve – Naturally Unique



Gourikwa Reserve is one of the most unique private reserves along the South African coastline. With 5km of pristine coastline, a rich variety of indigenous fauna and flora and facilities ranging from top class accommodation to a beachfront chapel and a state of the art wedding facility. Previously known as Reins Reserve, we have reverted to the original “Gourikwa” and have made major upgrades to the reserve. Located in the heart of the scenic Garden Route, the 2000ha reserve is nestled between Mosselbay and Stillbay and is only a 30min drive away from the George Airport. This is truly a gem in the Garden Route crown.



All our recently refurbished Cottages are all less than 100m from the shore break, making your stay a unique experience. There are a total of 6 Deluxe Cottages all with fully equipped kitchens a built-in braai and spacious rooms.

Gourikwa is perfect for groups of scholars to learn from our greatest teacher: Mother Nature.

We can cater for any type of group and the Reserve is the ideal venue for learning and teambuilding. Groups can be accommodated dormitory style or in individual units.

Protecting and passing on the heritage of the Gourikwa reserve to the next generation is one of the core visions of the reserve.
