I travel with my wife and another couple and this was our 5 th visit to Londolozi.We had high expectations based on our previous visits and this time it was even somehow better than the previous visits!!We stayed at Varty camp and as always the rooms were spacious, bright,clean and a great view of the sand river.The food was outstanding and they always make a special effort to cater for my lactose intolerance.All the staff at every level were fantastic and the homely feeling of knowing many of the people from previous visits was extra special.The camp managers went out of their way to make this another unique visit and the nightly dinners in the boma were awesome.We also had a special "Savignon Blanc" wine tasting in the middle of the bush just for our vehicle as a" sundowner" with a difference.Sandros was our ranger and he come back from his leave to be with us and Foster was our tracker.They were a magical team and they sniffed out a few leopards and the wild dogs that many would have missed!!Sandros grew up in the bush and has been at Londolozi for more than 20 years so what a treat to have the privledge of his expertise again.As always the game viewing was special and we saw the big five in one morning game drive and except for elephant repeated the big five in the afternoon drive on the same day.As for leopards -Londolozi performed as it always does with 7 leopard sightings in 3 days so an average of more than 2 leopards a day.In addition a fantastic viewing of the Tsalala pride and cubs in the morning and the cubs with blood red faces enjoying an impala in the afternoon and 2 sightings of the wild dogs.Giraffe were plentiful this time and for me personally the birds were amazing especially around the campsite with the striking Scarlet Chested Sunbirds and the beautiful White Bellied Sunbirds.In addition had 2 cheetah sightings as well.If anyone is deciding where to go on safari in the Sabi Sands there is no choice-Londolozi is the best by far.We already have our next visit in May 2014 reserved !!
