It’s hard to imagine that a place where so much relaxation can happen can be located so close to one of the busiest cities on the continent. And yet, Sondela Nature Reserve is just a 90 minute drive from Johannesburg and one of the most beautiful vacation clubs the country has to offer.
Resort setting The resort touts the unusual combination of farmyard and bushveld, with accommodation set in the backyard of a private game farm and the surrounding areas forming the edge of Limpopo’s Waterberg Region - the perfect place for any holidayer.
The reserve offers a host of on-site facilities, including quad biking, mountain biking, bush walks and game drives, with horse riding and 4x4 challenges leaving no shortage of things to do. And if you prefer to just unwind, there is a swimming pool, along with a playground for all the kids.
The surrounding area also leaves you spoiled for choice. Visit the nearby hot springs or head out to chase your thrill on one of the zipline adventures.
Explore the Thaba Kwena Crocodile Farm or just hang out and do that golf thing at the Elements Private Golf Reserve and the Korocreek Golf Course.
The rustic self-catering chalets come with a private braai area (you can also visit the restaurant if you don’t feel like cooking), and are fully equipped and well-taken care of. The perfect place, in other words, to let your hair down and have a good time.
