The campfire has burned at Varty Camp for over 90 years, making this place the symbolic heart of Londolozi. This original camp is a tapestry of brick paths, dolerite rock walls, waterfalls and tangled vines echoing simple spaces with unencumbered river view backdrops. The tones of the camp reflect the owners’ 90-year love affair with this land and therefore place an emphasis on family and heritage.
In 1993, Londolozi became the first game reserve to be accorded Relais & Châteaux status, placing it among the world’s top luxury destinations.
Each room has its own private swimming pool, outdoor shower and outdoor dining sala, framed by timber decks raised off the ground under the shade of an ancient riverine forest.
Children over the age of six are welcome at Varty Camp.
Many Londolozi guest facilities can be found within the surrounds of Varty Camp. These include the guest gym, the Londolozi Photographic Studio and Living Boutique. Guests from all camps are invited to make use of these facilities as well as the Yoga Deck, situated next to Founders Camp.
Also found within Varty Camp is the newly appointed Healing House – a concept that takes you beyond the spa, with a beautiful return of wellness to wildness. Bodywork (massage) and specialised alternative wellness treatment facilities are available. The charming “original Sparta Camp” is also located in the heart of Varty Camp representing where Londolozi began in 1926.
Game drives at Londolozi are taken by professional, passionate and knowledgeable Rangers and Trackers, who have 350 years of experience between them. With over 16,000 hectares of traversing wilderness, no two 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 thickets in pursuit of rare animal sightings, simultaneously wowing guests with their knowledge and unforgettable stories.
Activities include: Bush Walks, Village Experiences, Good Work Foundation Community Experience, Yoga Classes and Massages.
