We spent three nights at Varty Camp and had a huge, comfortable room, big veranda even a plunge pool was included. The pick up at the airstrip was very welcome.
The open Restaurant offers a great view to the river and we have seen big herd of elefants walking along the Sand River. During our first game drive on the same day, our Ranger Lucien and Tracker James spotted a leopard with a cub and as lucky we were, the vater of the cub joined them too. This was a great experience as we have done Safari's before but never seen a leopard. During the following drives we have seen some more leopoards and all the big fives. Londolozi is really an excellent place so see leopards. I have done a lot of research in the internet and found a website, which recommended Londolozi as one of the best places in Africa and it's true. At the end of our last game drive Lucien had a great surprise for us, he stopped at an excellent spot, we felt very spoiled. On the other side a single elefant bull walked along the stream, it was like in an ad. Lucien and James did an excellent job, they knew all the lions by their names. Due to all the excellent game drives I should not forget to mention the friendly staff,very good food, great massage in the spa and Lina (we called her queen of Londolozi) she gave us a tour through the village. Where we have seen the making of the giraffes which were used in your Christmas news letter. Looking forward to returning to Londolozi in the near future.
