          Sondela is our favourite family bush resort. My kids love it so much, they do not want to go anywhere else. Staff are friendly and the facilities is great. We will go back again and again, in fact next visit is July and then December.

          Always a fantastic stay - more than enough to do for parent and kids and great facilities to rest. The time is never enough and before we know it we are busy planning our next time to Sondela. Highly recommended.

          Unit was dirty. Light where not working. Mice droppings in bed. Oven broken. Windows full of dust and spiders. Towels had holes in. Not the best unit compared to others we visited. TV remotes were broken. Braai has no light.
