  • Calm nature, it's so quiet and peaceful here. Good place for the soul. Has a pool with a great view. A mini pub, pool table, table tennis they also serve dinner if you order the day before. The food is amazing!

  • Mlilwane is a beautiful park with fantastic lodging but the customer service at Sondzela Backpackers is the worst in Southern Africa. I have been to Sondzela a few times and the two women at the front desk are always rude, lazy, incompetent and unable to complete the most basic of their responsibilities. They struggled to check me in (over 30 mins), threw my WildCard at me and lied to me about using the back gate, then blamed management. Hopefully the staff can receive customer service training or be replaced.

  • Extremely nice backpackers. Visited multiple times over multiple years, never disappointed. They prepare meals in the evening which are great value and very tasty. Breakfast is prepared on the fire (eggs and toast) also for a great price. A definite must-go when in Swaziland.

  • Really nice place and just chill to the nature, I was not that fortunate to see that many animals but very nice nevertheless

  • Very beautiful little hostel with very comfortable and clean dorm rooms. Shower like an expensive hotel and a great swimming pool outside. The gardens are huge and very well kept, and a perfect place to relax and enjoy the views of the mountains. The night I was there there was barbecued pork which was fantastic.
