My third time to Londolozi and my second stay at Varty. I go to Africa for the animals but each time I return I make new unforgettable friends at this camp. Expectations are always high and somehow i leave with better memories and sightings than the time before.
I am an amateur photographer and was pleased to find not only do they have experienced photographers as guides but they actually have a creative photo lab where you can downed your photos and take them home on canvas if you can't wait. They even helped troubleshoot and adjusted my focus on my new nikon. They do rent cameras and lenses btw.
OK now for the animals and the sightings. Leopard , cheetah and lions- Male lions, female lions and cubs. My tracker Trevor and my ranger Bennett were amazing. Big cats every drive.
My review would not be complete without mentioning specifically what made the hospitality so 5 star. Simone and Graeme my camp mangers at Varty! Although they were both new to this camp they truly knew how to make me feel like family. I felt as if i was visiting family and I was a guest in their home.
