You will be spoilt for choice between the incredible selection of fine food and exceptional wine around Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. Enjoy spending time exploring the region, sampling different wines, enjoying the most delicious local cuisine and soaking up some of the most stunning scenery in the world.
After a delicious breakfast at Indochine or in the comfort of your room, enjoy a seamless check out of Delaire Graff Estate and meet your driver who will escort you to Cape Town International Airport. Here, you will board your scheduled flight to Skukuza Airport. Upon arrival at the airport, a representative will greet you and assist with your transfer to the world-renowned Londolozi Private Game Reserve. With breathtaking views over the Sand River, Londolozi Varty Camp offers a truly exclusive wilderness safari. Situated in the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve which has no boundary fences with Kruger National Park, the lion populations here are among the highest recorded in Africa. You will spend 4 days and 3 nights here immersing yourself in the African bush and enjoy unrivalled luxury at a premium Relais & Châteaux lodge.
Londolozi is a premier luxury game reserve with 5 different camps, each with their own look and feel. This itinerary includes a stay at Varty Camp – the nearly 100 year old luxury camp and symbolic heart of Londolozi. Each luxurious superior chalet at Varty camp has its own private pool, outdoor shower and outdoor dining sala, under the shade of an ancient riverine forest.
Twice-daily safari game drives with a knowledgeable ranger and tracker are a regular feature during your time at Londolozi. There are also optional guided bush walks, a cultural village experience, community visit, yoga classes and a photographic studio for budding or avid photographers on offer.
