Sondzela Backpackers

Sondzela Backpackers is located within Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary’s southern boundary overlooking the beautiful Mhlambanyatsi Valley.

With its own gate, Eswatini’s WILDest backpacker’s offers travellers an unbeatable range of excellent value accommodation in stunning surroundings.

Sondzela Backpackers includes a spacious camping ground, a large house with both private rooms and dorms, and private rondavels within the garden.

In addition to 1 private double room and 1 private single room (both sharing a bathroom), the main house also has an 8 sleeper dorm upstairs, as well as a seperate 6 sleeper dorm close to the house that overlooks a large garden and pool. Guests can make use of the kitchen to whip-up their own meals, buy snacks and essentials from the shop as well as enjoy DSTV in the lounge.

The backpacker’s lodge also offers 10 rondavels for guests looking for a bit of privacy. These Swazi-style huts each have a basin with cold water as well as an ablution block close by.

Just a 15min walk from Mlilwane Rest Camp and within walking distance to the Malkerns main road and Mahlanya fresh produce market, Sondzela offers comfortable accommodation in scenic gardens. It includes its own swimming pool, large garden, ample safe parking, braai/bbq area, Hog & Wart Bar, laundry, DSTV and games room.

A FREE Sondzela Shuttle is also offered daily to and from Malandela’s Restaurant and Internet Café to further enhance ease of travel.

Known as the WILDest backpackers in Eswatini; after wrestling the resident Ostrich for your spot by the pool or becoming at one with Zebras on horseback you’ll understand why.
