The original facility of what is now a cluster of five camps; Varty Camp sits above the Sabi River in the Londolozi Private Game Reserve, part of Sabi Sands. The most expansive of the group, Varty offers a range of activities, private plunge pools and brilliant facilities, all for a very reasonable price.

The camp has relaxing and beautifully furnished communal areas where guests can dine or simply take in the surroundings. The whole camp is raised off the ground on stilts, giving superb views of the river and its wildlife. As the largest of the group, the camp has the most facilities including a gym, boutique, communal pool, massage room and library; all of which are open to residents of the surrounding camps. This set up creates more of a hotel atmosphere than an isolated lodge in the middle of the wilderness; A plus or minus depending on what you are looking for. Established for over 84 years, Varty’s staff know the area inside out and the three hour morning and evening game drives are an opportunity to spot all the ‘Big Five’. Tracking, bush walks, picnics and sleep outs are also offered for a true all round African experience.

Despite the numerous facilities, the accommodation is relatively intimate with just eight chalets and two superior chalets. All the en-suite rooms are open plan and are simple yet modern and well furnished. Expected amenities such as air conditioning and internet access are also included. Each chalet has an outdoor thatched deck and private plunge pool with beautiful views over the bush, although only the superior chalets have outdoor showers. Rooms can house families of up to four.

Children of all ages are welcome, although they must be six and over to take part in the game drives. The ‘Cubs Den’ runs a personal programme for 4-16 year olds that is thoughtfully put together and offers the children a broad choice of activities. All the children’s programmes are run at no extra cost and so for young families this is a great choice.

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”

  • It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve

  • Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair
