Londolozi’s lovely Varty Camp is the original camp at Londolozi, dating back to more than ninety years ago. Although newly refurbished, the chalets are slightly on the small side but offer inter-leading rooms, spectacular river views and private plunge pools. All rooms have private swimming pools framed by timber decks that overlook the lush riverine bush. The living spaces are raised off the ground and shaded under a cathedral of trees.
Londolozi Varty Sabi Sands - The Details
Londolozi’s Varty Camp is Londolozi's best value camp, making it ideal for those wishing for a first-class safari experience in the Sabi Sands
without spending a fortune.
With eight standard chalets and two superior chalets, Varty can offer something for everyone. There are two interconnecting rooms which are ideal for families or larger groups who want to be located close to each other.
All rooms have private swimming pools with timber decks overlooking the riverine bush and the living spaces are raised off the ground and under the shade of tree canopy.
Within the chalets you will a beautifully simple design that is lavishly decorated. With the comforts of air-conditioning, a fully-stocked mini-bar and a beautiful open-plan bathroom, every need is certainly catered for.
The camp has a pleasingly down-to-earth feel and quality to it and the emphasis on family heritage cannot be missed. The lounge and dining areas and spacious and airy with some beautiful views of the Sand River and the use of all of Londolozi's facilities is recommend. Whether you want to make use of the gym, the photographic suite, the spa or take part in the newly introduced yoga sessions, everything is accessible for you here.
Game drives at Varty are the same high standard as any other Londolozi property. With extraordinary leopard sightings and huge concentrations of other members of the Big 5, game viewing here is often very special.
Whilst Londolozi's main traverse is not shared with other lodges, they can venture onto Singita's
property therefore maximising the chances of some brilliant game viewing. With a minimum amount of vehicles in the area, sightings are intimate and unobtrusive allowing guests to maximise their time spent with the animals and therefore providing brilliant photographic opportunities.
Combining a stay at Londolozi with a visit to Tswalu
in the Kalahari is a great combination for those seeking two different and exceptional safari experiences. The variety of wildlife and the diversity in habitat make them the perfect combination and with South Africa's very good transport links, getting from one to the other isn't too difficult.
After your safari (or in between your two safaris) a trip to Cape Town
cannot be missed. This vibrant city if full of energy and natural wonders. From the V&A Waterfront which is full of shops, bars and restaurants to Table Mountain and the penguins of Boulder's Beach, there is something for everyone here. With so much on offer, we recommend at least three nights in Cape Town to give you enough time to make the most everything on offer.
A typical South Africa itinerary would also see you venture into Cape Town's surrounding winelands. Franschhoek is a quaint and cosy town which is home to some of the world's best restaurants where you can indulge in exquisite cuisine and sample the country's finest wine. The winelands are the perfect place to completely relax and unwind at the end of your trip.
