We booked a stand with own bathroom. I had to clean the bathroom before we could use it, the basin and toilet was not clean. The wooden bathmat in front of the shower was "broken", my grandchild(3 years old) fell down when she got out of the shower. She step on the side of the mat and the whole wooden... More

We had a lovely, quiet experience with a bush atmosphere. The stars at night were amazing and nice to wake up with the animals around. The chalets are far enough away from each other to give one privacy.

Sondela is within easy reach of Pretoria and was pleasant to visit. However, be aware that you have to pay for every activity (except the pools) in contrast to a place like Sun City, where most on-site activities and facilities are included in the price of accommodation.

Great place for a bush getaway and kids love it there. Pricing of food and events is expensive and dont feel like we get value for money in that aspect. We will however defnitely go back again.........

Staff village noise (although never after 22:00), highway noise at night, and sheep and goats inside caravan area not condusive to a real nature reserve/bush breakaway. Service road next to caravan park very busy and needs more than once a day watering. Selfdrive game roads too few and not well marked.

We stayed at Sondela Nature Reserve on 21-23/08/2015. The resort is 156km from O R Tampo Airport, which was close enough for weekend. The service and amenities is top class. On arrival you get greeted by young rangers that assist you, give you a info pack and free pancake and juice. The chalets are well equipped and spacious. Lovely bicycle... More
