Sabi Sands Game Reserve, regarded by many as the “birthplace” of sustainable wilderness tourism and development in Sub-Saharan Africa, is understood by guests and staff to be a place of wilderness, wildlife and adventure. Home to an extensive cross-section of the Mpumalanga wildlife population, including the Big Five and various endangered species, the park also shares 50 kilometers of its unfenced boundary line with neighbouring Kruger National Park. Animals pass casually between the two parks, unhindered and abundant.
Londolozi Game Reserve, a sub-section to the greater Sabi Sand Game Reserve, is geared towards luxury and exclusivity. Spanning an area of 14 000 hectares, along the western border of the Kruger National Park, and created by brothers and wildlife conservationists Dave and John Varty, Londolozi has also become known internationally as a place dedicated to the principals of eco tourism.
Owing its name to the Zulu term for “protector of all things”, Londolozi endeavours to incorporate this ethic into all their operations and projects. Considered a “predator’s paradise”, the area is made famous by its impressive leopard population, as well as a host of other wild animals and grand flora.
Varty Camp is a riverside masterpiece, a stunning collection of exclusive chalets positioned at intervals around the riverside bush that makes Londolozi so famous. Guests enjoy the crisp morning air and wonderful service of this charming camp, as well as the excitement and adventure of nearby bush drives, walks, and other excursions.
Varty Camp provides accommodation in eight luxury, and two superior, chalets, with private swimming pools, and raised living areas, air conditioning, private plunge pools, vaulteed guest areas and leisure decks.
