Sondela Nature Reserve
Known as The Great North, the Limpopo Province is the gateway to sub-Saharan Africa. It is a diverse landscape of bushveld, savannah, semi-desert, and subtropical vegetation. And nestled in the heart of the Bushveld you will find Bela Bela (Warmbaths) and one of South Africas most popular inland holiday resorts, Sondela Nature Reserve. The reserve is an almost 4800 hectare private game reserve, situated close to the N1 highway and only 90 minutes from Johannesburg and 10 km East of Bela Bela.
Sondela offers various wildlife activities for the whole family and facilities which include swimming pools, restaurants, horse riding, game drives, quad biking, mountain biking, bush walks, as well as horse trails and 4 x 4 challenges.
The Sondela Wildlife Centre is a wonderful facility within the reserve that captures your imagination and the little residents will definitely capture your hearts. It is an area where you can touch, feel, listen and tour through. A place where the staff share with you their vast experience, dedication and passion for the hand-rearing, care and handling of the wild animals in their charge. Sondela Wildlife Centre is dedicated to care for wild animals in distress, rescue and rehabilitate sick or injured wild animals, hand-rear orphaned wild animals, provide comfortable safe holding facilities for animals and finally to create a better world for wild animals by improving their welfare and educating people in an entertaining manner to care for their natural heritage.
But there is more to the reserve than just being a wildlife conservation area, it is also a working farm and as such a large number of farm animals and farm implements can be found in the farmyard. Popular with the kids, their delightful laughter and obvious thrill can be experienced as they flock to feed the various farm animals during feeding times. From milking cows to petting the tame sheep or admiring the boastful display of a peacocks feathers, the farmyard offers young kids an experience which they will not easily forget.
For moms and dads who are looking for something special the Spa and Wellness Centre offers a variety of revitalising Beauty and Body Treatments. The Kneipp Pool and Steam Room are sure to make you feel refreshed, alive and de-stressed. While trained therapists, quality products and assorted treatments have been carefully selected to enhance your overall experience at this welcoming and truly relaxing retreat.
