Sondela offers comfortable accommodation in a game park surrounding... We had some great game viewing (obviously not the Big5), and stayed in a super luxury and comfortable Bush lodge. All in all a great weekend away... close to the city

Not only were we very impressed with the all round service delivery, but so were the friends we had with, well done to all the staff involved, professional from the minute we drove into the gate to the minute we left.

We have had bad feedback from the small stands at the normal caravan park, but we have no experience with that, so cannot comment, BUT have been to Tambuki a few times and we love it! Clean resort but pools are a bit crowded!

Excellent accomodation, Well worth the cost. I would reccomend this to any nature lover who needs a pampered break. Great, well laid out cycle routes. Although during the raining season the roads are very muddy.

Great camping venue not too far from JHB, with clean ablutions, friendly staff and great facilities. Could be overcrowded in busy periods but on quieter weekends this is an ideal camping venue. Pool area at the restaurant is wonderful, with great food. Well stocked shop at the main area that has everything you need. We will be back again outside...

I will go back and back again. It was my best camping weekend ever. My daughter had a ball. There is so many things to do for young and old. Staff is super friendly, and the car washers when you go home, I was amazed. We felt like royalty.

This is a lovely place to get away from it all and be at one with nature. The animals coming to the chalets are a real treat. I particularly recommend the spa when there. The chalets are clean, well looked after and it is lovely to braai in the evening and just listen to the sounds of the bush.
