Incredible experience! Had a beautiful thatched bungalow right on the river, and elephants would come down to the river to drink and play... imagine lazing in your private jacuzzi on your patio with a glass of champagne in your hand and watching a herd of elephants just beyond. Varty Camp main lodge/ dining area was just gorgeous and the food...

Dear AmiP Thank you for your fantastic review. It sounds like you had some truly incredible wildlife sightings not to mention the best way to view elephants - from your pool, champagne in hand. We hope you make it more than a once in a lifetime trip. With Love, The Londolozi Family

Don't think twice about Londolozi Varty Camp. The owners, the Varty family, are visionary. Their passion for sustainability, conservation and looking after their people shines brightly through all of the staff. From the managers, the guides, the chefs and all of the support staff. The service was impeccable, food was superb and facilities were excellent but the highlight of the...

Although Londolozi Varty Camp was not our first choice it turned out to be our best choice. The accommodations were second to none. After returning from a game drive we had our own mini pool to relax. I thought the Varty Camp had the nicer property and dining area. Every meal served was absolutely amazing. The staff was friendly and...

Dear Steve B, Thank you for the review. You are right in saying that seeing an ostrich is rare for the Sabi Sand we had not seen one for many years and now we are fortunate enough to have had regular sightings of them over the last little while which is fantastic.

This was our first safari experience and I can't imagine having picked a better place. We were sad to leave and can't wait to make it back.

Well, what to say about Londo?! Staff - We had Garrett guiding us and Life as tracker. You could tell Garrett was from good Ulster stock. He was brilliant for every drive, informative, funny, helpful. If we'd been driving for a few mins without something to talk about he'd always have a tree, plant, bird etc to tell us about...

Spend 8 nights again at Varty Camp. Being treated like an old friend felt at home right from the start. Ranger Andrea and tracker Sasant went the extramile to give us unforgettable moments with the big 5 and gave special attention and focus on our preference for leopard, cheetah and lion sightings.

Visited for my 30th. The game drives were stellar and this lodge does a great job at providing the experience: sundowners, boma dinner, breakfast in the bush, etc. Had the opportunity to stay in other camps but prefer this one as it's centrally located.
