Londolozi Varty Camp Location Map

Varty Camp is located in the Londolozi Private Game Reserve, an exclusive safari destination situated in the heart of the famous Sabi Sand Game Reserve. Meaning 'protector of all living things' in Zulu, Londolozi is renowned for its progressive ecotourism practices, and is one of the most sought-after safari destinations in Africa.

Londolozi has earned an international reputation for its unmatched African wildlife experience, personalised service, superb safari accommodation and excellent relationships with its neighbouring communities.

Game drives are taken by professional, passionate and knowledgeable rangers and trackers. With over 16,000 hectares of traversing wilderness, no 2 game drives are ever the same. Trackers sit up at the front of the Land Rover looking for fresh animal tracks, while rangers drive with astonishing skill into ravines and through thicket in pursuit of elusive animals, simultaneously wowing guests with their outstanding knowledge and unforgettable stories.

Varty Camp has 8 chalets and 2 superior chalets. All rooms have private swimming pools framed by timber decks that overlook the riverine bush. The living spaces are raised off the ground and shaded under a cathedral of trees. The camp has a pleasingly down-to-earth quality and the emphasis on family heritage means that children over 6 always have a place at Varty Camp.

Varty Camp is also home to a boutique, cardio vascular room, massage treatment room and a library.
