We sent a good few days camping. This 4 star campsite is clean and well looked after. Pools all sparkling and staff really try hard to please. The Farmyard entertainment site is a nice place to spend a lazy day. However this is a learning facility and not all of the hospitality students have mastered the customer service module. Food is mediocre to poor at restaurants, toasted samies and wraps are about all that i would recommend. No body stopped smokers from smoking at the pools and coffee shop and then you feel like a grump because you need to say something a smoke comes your way towards your kids. Entertainment crew for the kids were great but students looked like they were there to play together and not with the kids. They just sat around in groups. Not enough chefs and too many students.

Room Tip: Private ablutions while camping does help. Pick shade it can get hot.

We had the best five days camping ever, I'm not big on camping but Sondela change my mind completely. Since the moment we enter the reserve, the guard
at the gate made us feel welcome and part of the family.

We stayed at the Caravan Park, the staff, students were very helpful, they attended to our needs assisted with all our queries and loads of questions from the kids as well. The park was kept clean all the time and the ablution facilities always clean anytime of the day or night. The welcome pancakes was a major hit. getting a bag of ice and fire wood was also a big plus for us. The game drive on the tractor was amazing, we saw quite a few animals with the sun setting in the background.

There are quite a few swimming pools and the Farmyard with all the big shady trees and the ice cold drinks just made it all the more special. they had a jampacked program for kids and adults which we've truly enjoyed, because we could sit back and relax and know that our kids were in good capable hands.

Yes, Sondela changed my camping and we're already think about going again December. Thank you Sondela, we had an awesome time and it was value for money.

Lovely campsite for the family, our kids made friends and did everything their little harts desire. We had a wonderful time and the free game drive voucher with the tractor and all the interesting facts about the animals that we saw was truly amazing!

we spent a wonderful week with the family, some camping and others in the chalets. there was more than enough for everybody to do . the bicycle trails were very pleasant and we enjoyed the pool at the entertainment area very much. we also loved the animals that came around to the chalet for daily visits. Everywhere we were impressed by the staff
