Just returned from another spectacular weekend at Sondela. We stayed in the acacia chalets and found them incredibly well equipped and comfortable and reasonably priced too. Except no hairdryer in either of 3 bedrooms. A big win with two busy and nature loving boys - feeding nyala, warthog from your patio! Excellent service from all the staff and really good...

Went there for the weekend, upgraded from camping to chalets because of the weather. Was impressed by how efficiently the place is run. The welcome is well worked out, pancakes upon arrival, together with very efficient check-in. Departure equally good, while staff throughout (looks mostly like young students) are well trained and attentive. Stayed in the Acacia chalets. Swimming area...

This was not at all what we expected! We arrived in the rain at Number 3. The bathroom was flooded (the roof leaked and if you look at the floor, when dry, it has been leaking for quite some time). Our door could not close properly and we could not lock it at all. We reported the leak as well...

Nice place for families with activities for children. We went to camp for a weekend and unfortunately it rained most of the time. So the place can get very messy with the rain..We booked a stand that had private ablution facilities which was neat and clean. Friendly staff and efficient check in processes. Only thing I didn't like was the...

The service and hospitality received at the Country House was first class. Impressive accommodation, yet with a homely feel. We had a few special requests during our visit, including dietary needs and nothing was too much trouble. A truly wonderful experience.

My daughter loved this place. It is perfect for a weekend getaway from the City (Johannesburg or Pretoria). Children will love this place as there is so much to do. Remember to take their bicycles! A lot of trees in the Caravan Park so there is enough shade for everyone.

average, the rides and entertainment is very expensive with the coffee shop and restaurants not really catering with a VERY limited menu that was poor. the times it is open was very unclear and creates inconvenience
