Varty Camp has 8 chalets and 2 superior chalets and can accommodate a maximum of 22 guests. All the rooms at Varty Camp have private swimming pools situated in timber decks that look out over beautiful riverine bush.

Children of all ages are welcome at Varty Camp and the children’s programme is uniquely tailored for each child based on personal interaction. The programs are energetic and flexible and children will discover a whole world in the outdoor classroom that surrounds them.

Varty Camp is the home of an African safari holiday and visitors can enjoy game viewing in superb ‘Big 5’ territory, including game drives and bush walks. Bird watching is spectacular with over 450 different species recorded. The bush walks are perfect for balmy winter afternoons and offer an escape from all noise and distractions allowing visitors to experience a feeling of oneness with nature. Daily game drives are conducted in 4 x 4 vehicles with knowledgeable and experienced rangers allowing guests up close encounters with the wildlife and great photographic opportunities. The ancient art of tracking has been uniquely preserved at Londolozi and during winter, guests can experience the thrill of going in search of the big cats, rhino and buffalo – on foot - an experience which will leave guests with lasting memories of their visit to Varty Camp.

Bush Breakfasts and Adventure Picnics can be savoured and enjoyed out in the African wilderness. Enjoy a special breakfast on the banks of the Sand River soaking up the fresh air, sights and sounds of the African wilderness. And for those looking for a little more adventure or a deeper reconnection with nature, a Sleep Out – in the branches of a 1000 year old Ebony tree, allows visitors to spend the night under a clear, starlit sky and enjoy some of natures nocturnal sounds before waking to a golden sunrise overlooking the beautiful water course of the Sand River.

Yoga classes are conducted daily at Varty Camp and private sessions can be arranged in the comfort of one’s suite or the shade of the deck if this is preferred. Massage therapies are available in the lodge’s Massage Treatment room, in the privacy of one’s suite or out in the wilderness. Massage has been practiced as a healing therapy for centuries and the massage room at Londolozi Life has been designed to create a space in harmony with the elements, ensuring an experience that quietens the mind, rejuvenates energy and creates inner balance. Therapies available include Thai and Swedish massage, Reiki healing and Aromatherapy.

At night, the clear evening skies at Londolozi lend themselves to stargazing and astronomy – the rangers are trained in Astronomy and evenings are often spent under an African sky learning about the stars or sitting around a campfire listening to stories of Londolozi’s history, myths and legends or mysteries of adventure and safari, all steeped in tradition.

Additional facilities at Varty Camp include the original Sparta Hunting Camp, Boutique, Cardio Vascular Room, Massage Treatment Room and Library and guests from all camps are able to make use of these facilities. Historical Tours can be arranged in the surrounding areas or guests can take the ‘In the Footsteps of Nelson Mandela’ walking tour which offers an opportunity to interact with many of the staff and their families who have lived and worked at Londolozi for over 30 years and view the Freedom’s Way Art installation which has been completed to draw attention to the values which Nelson Mandela put forward to the South African nation. There is also a golf course nearby
Varty Camp has been in existence for over 85 years making it the symbolic heart and soul of Londolozi and an ideal base for a down-to-earth, true African safari experience.
