VAR Safaris operates on a 6000 ha tranquil and unspoiled private landscape, situated between Pongola and Louwsburg in the heart of Zululand. We are now part of the Mkuze Valley Wilderness Reserve, and are home to the Big5, in addition to nyala, zebra, impala, bushbuck, grey and red duiker, the elusive kudu, warthog, bush pig, baboons, monkeys as well as a variety of birds.
Our eco-friendly lodge offers an authentic and comfortable feel and ensures relaxing evenings and a good night’s sleep. From the homestead you can enjoy 180-degree uninterrupted views of the Zululand bush. Our attentive service and home-cooked meals allow you to relax and unwind. Evenings are usually spent in the lapa enjoying a cold drink around the campfire and sharing stories of the day’s adventures. Children of all ages are welcome
