Had a pleasant midweek break at the end of July. Self catering is supplemented with a store to purchase provisions, a restaurant and a coffee bar, The dirt roads are in a reasonable condition. Staff are generally friendly with an active student training programme in place.

Chalet well designed and kitchen layout a pleasure for visitors that likes to cook there own meals. The Open Shower in the bathroom was very slippery. The rooms was spacious and we had a nice rest . We loved the game drive and the visits to the wildlifecentre. The spa and steam room was also very relaxing.

We always enjoy staying at Sondela. We are keen cyclists and enjoy the wildlife surroundings. The entertainment at the pools are good and there are many activities for the children. We however would like to see an indoor heated pool, especially for winter times.

Sondela is and will be our "Stress Breaker" and weekend get away place. It's just 180 km from home and easily assemble via the main N1 highway. The hiking/cycling and bird watching along the well marked paths are excellent and well maintained. The lack of an under cover heated pool during winter is the only negative point.
