Sondela is a beautiful part of the world and we love coming there. . Unfortunately the roads were in very poor condition and were blocked off in some areas whereas holiday makers could have been warned about this and advised to no take that specific road before embarking on it

Lovely short bush break for our extended family. Bush lodge was clean and spacious. All staff were very friendly. Horse game ride was excellent way of getting close to Sable and Golden Wildebeest. Will come again

We enjoyed our stay. Chalets were clean and well equipped.. perhaps 2 sofas would have been more comfortable. Enjoyed the spa. It was Winter but the pools looked inviting. Not a great abundance of game but very pleasant to walk and enjoy. Hosing down the car a special touch at the end of our stay

Good afternoon. We enjoyed our weekend thoroughly, but I was very disappointed to see only 4 Njalas at our chalet. I would have loved to see more animals on the game drive. Facilities & Chalet very neat and children loved the entertainment.

From dirty bathroom on arrival to worn toilet seats, soap dishes coming off the wall, and lights that didn't work, doors that got stuck, there is obviously no maintenance being done on these units. Bed was also broken, septic tank had been worked on and not covered properly. No instructions on arrival, couldn't work TV. Also being a game park, I saw less game than at any time in the past visits and possibly saw more game driving to and from the venue. A bitter disappointment, especially since I have been staying there each year for about 15 years now.

Just close enough to feel like you can attend for the weekend and just far enough out of the city to feel well rested. The amenities are well taken care of and there are activities for all ages during the weekends.

Only had 3 days to celebrate a 75th birthday. Chose Sondela Country Home. Excellent choice. Tyrone made sure that everything was perfect. Even baked a marvellous birthday cake. My second time at the Country Home and still happy with the service.

Roodepoort, Gauteng, South Africa5 contributions
It's a very nice farm with many activities for the family. We used the camping site with private ablutions. Unfortunately I chose a stand next to another stand that was busy being excavated so there was a lot of red soil and not much grass around our stand. The other stands however had grass so we just chose the wrong stand for the weekend. The kids loved the activities and there is so much for them to do so, we will be visiting again. Perhaps 1 downfall was the fact that I prefer to have a view of the bushveld instead of grass lands. The camping sites are surrounded by grass lands that were put there for the animals to graze. This is beautiful as you see many animals, but I still prefer the bushveld view. But that is not a deal breaker so we will be visiting again. A tip: Make the game drives more interesting. We attended both the normal game drive as well as the Rare game drive. We did not see much in the normal game drive since the tractor just drove around the wild camp. If there are a few roads into the bush we might be able to see more. The rare game drive is not "rare". It's just a drive where animals comes up to the tractor. This is awesome, but the word "rare" is misleading. I heard there are many night animals on the farm that one don't see often. I would suggest that a proper "rare" game drive is created at night where one can see these "rare" animals. That is something I would pay for. But all and all I give this farm a rating of 4 out of 5 since there are so much activities to do with the kids.

Beautiful, and peaceful resort, however, it is somewhat out of the way for visitors from other provinces. There is a lack of an information document/booklet of the resort which details the various contact numbers and details of the facilities within the chalets.
