This was our second trip to the Granite Suites, and not the last. The Varty family have created a camp that has everything. We were lucky enough to meet JV (John Varty), and that was quite an experience. You will not be disappointed in any way with a visit to this camp ( hard to call it a "camp" as it is so much more). The suites are like small luxury houses on the river. Hippos, Cape Buffalo, elephant, baboons, mongoose, and birds of all kinds in your back yard. Our guide, Lucien, our host Nadia, and the entire support team were of the highest quality. Nadia arranged a special event for renewing of our vows with a local Sangoma and the girl's choir. This was very special and done with great care. Lucien, well, was a very special person and his guiding skills are fantastic. The camp is very involved with the local community, especially with literacy projects. They are to be commended! Don't miss this experience if your plans include Kruger Park.
