Warm, Earthy Luxury Safari Accommodation in Sabi Sands on Kruger’s Border

Family accommodation interconnected ‘skywalk’ chalets allows parents and children to visit each other without having to cross the wild bush. Every lavish chalet features its own splash pool on a delightful timber deck overlooking the Sand River where wild animals come down to drink. Enjoy showering outside while elephants shower nearby and sip a cuppa fresh brew when the birds awaken.

A dawn game drive treats all families to the thrill of the bush with a tea break as the sun warms the day – tuck into a huge brunch when you return to camp and rest all day before the next exciting episode for sundowners in the bush, before a massive, nutritious dinner around the boma fire.

Varty Camp is the site of the original Sparta hunting camp, and a bush holiday here has the feel of an old-time African safari escape. Hunting days are long gone, what a relief, and now safari guests experience a famous safari destination that embraces the conservation principles of generations of Varty and Taylor families, dedicated to providing a sanctuary for wildlife.
