Londolozi Varty Camp
With five luxurious camps set within a private reserve of some 7,000 hectares, Londolozi offers superb accommodation in one of South Africa’s finest wilderness areas. Adjacent to the world famous Sabi Sands game reserve, and with game drives available across the two areas, exciting wildlife viewing is almost guaranteed here. The camps are set around the area where, in the 1920s, founders Charles Boyd Varty and Frank Unger lit their original camp fire, and are still run by their grand-children and great grand-children. Part of the Relais Chateaux group since the early 1990s Londolozi is perfect for safari goers wanting a touch of luxury.
Accommodation & Facilities
Varty Camp comprises eight chalets and two superior suites decorated in the style of the owners’ private homes. All rooms have private swimming pools framed by timber decks overlooking the bush. The living spaces are raised off the ground and shaded under a cathedral of trees. With its down to earth atmosphere, Varty Camp is a perfect choice for families travelling with children. The camp also houses the boutique, gym, massage room and wine cellar which are accessible to guests staying at any of the Londolozi camps.
Wildlife & Activities
With over 16,000 acres to cover, no two game drives at Londolozi are the same, and expert guides will seek out all the best wildlife habitats during a stay here. With the Big 5 in residence, sightings of lion, leopard (particularly famous here), elephant, buffalo and rhino are all possible. Alongside these are plains filled with antelope and some excellent birding. The Londolozi Cubs programme will keep children entertained with ‘young rangers’ learning about spoor identification, bug catching and African dance. There are plenty of opportunities to relax during safari downtime, whether with a drink on your private deck or enjoying massage or a yoga session.
