Nestling gently in the cradle of the Bushveld, a mere 90 minutes from Johannesburg, in the malaria-free Limpopo Province, lies Sondela Nature Reserve.

This pristine resort offers a variety of accommodation options, such as a 5 Star butler-serviced Country House, rustic bush camps and an award-winning caravan park with lush green lawns and up-market ablutions.

A host of leisure facilities, outstanding cuisine and friendly service will complete your dream holiday. From quad biking, mountain biking, bush walks and game drives, to horse trails and 4x4 challenges, Sondela offers no shortage of thrills and spills.

The animal farm, with its generous variety of farm animals, authentic tree house and farm implements is a firm favourite with young children. Hot and cold water swimming pools offer endless hours of fun in any weather. The Sondela Wildlife Centre is a registered rehabilitation centre for the care of sick, injured or orphaned wild animals. Here guests can interact with the animals and learn more about the day-to-day care of the wild animals.

The butler-serviced Sondela Country House offers seven en-suite luxury rooms that is set against the gentle backdrop of grassy Bushveld savannahs, embraced by majestic trees, rolling green lawns and delightful glimpses of fertile farm fields and vineyards. Seven individually decorated bedrooms each feature luxuries such as carefully selected furnishings and fine linen. Some rooms entertain private outdoor showers or baths and our honeymoon suite boasts a secluded private garden and spa bath. A sparkling pool is reserved for the exclusive use of guests of the Sondela Country House.

Our wonderful Wildlife Centre is situated within walking distance of the Sondela reception area and will surely capture your imagination. Tour through the Sondela Wildlife Centre and let the team share their experiences, dedication and passion for hand-rearing wild animals.

At the Sondela Wildlife Centre, we care for wild animals in distress, rescue and rehabilitate sick or injured wild animals to ensure a safe future for our animals, hand rear orphaned wild animals, provide comfortable safe holding facilities for animals, create a better world by improving the welfare of wild animals and educating people in an entertaining manner to care for our natural heritage.

Please note, a minimum of two nights stay over weekends and full stay required for long weekends.
"Sondela with our grandsons"

By John, South Africa
"Our booking had been in the chalets, but a run-away fire had burnt them down over the week-end. So our booking had been transferred to a very comfortable Makhato House. The boys enjoyed the friendliness of the game, feeding Nyala by hand. The facilities of farmyard, swimming and booking arrangements for game drives etc. around the reception area were good with pub and pub food up to 16.30. Apart from the Monday when a good buffet dinner was served between 17.30 and 19.00, there were no restaurant facilities on offer. Enjoyable, but the weather let us down for half the period."
