    We are always excited to visit Sondela, chalets are comfortable and practical -facilities clean and good. The overall efficiency of the staff is very good. Students could do with a bit more coaching with guest interaction.

    Great for family. Relaxing. Very helpful staff. Casual staff available, friendly and knowledgable to assist with setting up and breaking down of camp. Lots to do for the little ones. Camping sites are quite close together, but somehow it doesn't really bother.

    Loved spending time in the tented camp at Sondela. Our group of four families were well looked after in tented chalets which brings the outdoor experience to those of us who are not real campers!! Wonderful weekend away family experience.
