Sondzela’s Got a New Look

Sondzela Backpackers has been undergoing renovations since July this year and we are please to let you know that we are almost done! The project to refurbish the Rolls Royce of  Backpackers started in July this year. Our crew has been working tirelessly over the past few months to make Swaziland’s WILDest backpackers even prettier for our visitors.

Located within Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary in the Ezulwini ‘Valley of Heavens’, Sondzela offers guests access to all of Mlilwane’s activities which include mountain bike trails (bikes can be hired for self-guided/guided tours), horse-riding, cultural tours and game/bird viewing activities.

With a swimming pool within a stunning garden, great value-home cooked venison and a FREE shuttle to Malandela’s and Mahlanya, Sondzela really is a safe, lovely and peaceful base to chill. And now that it has a new look, the best just got better.

Whether you are visiting us this festive season or stopping by for a day or two, come and see our new look, the resident ostrich and warthogs, game-studded plains and all that makes Sondzela the Rolls Royce of backpackers.

Sawubona! Welcome to Big Game Parks' Blog! From the flatlands in the East, through the mountainous and scenic West, to the heart of the lowveld in the South East, the Kingdom of Swaziland not only offers you nearly every example of African landscape but also unforgettable wildlife, culture, adventure and birding experiences. Big Game Parks (BGP) is a private non-profit Trust which manages three game reserves in Swaziland: Hlane Royal National Park, Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary and Mkhaya Game Reserve. All follow a common mission: to conserve the rich biodiversity of Swaziland's natural heritage. In 1960 the Reilly's family established the Kingdom's first game reserve on the Reilly family farm, Mlilwane. Hlane Royal National Park and Mkhaya Game Reserve soon followed and today the company's contribution to the restoration and protection of the Kingdom’s biodiversity is of great significance (BGP actually saved 22 species from extinction in Swaziland!) and can truly be appreciated by the discerning traveller. Swaziland is well-situated between Kruger National Park and Kwa-Zulu Natal as well as Gauteng, Mpumalanga and Maputo. Big Game Parks’ well-positioned and diverse game reserves are an essential destination in any itinerary.
