We have known Colbert since the first time we visited Londolozi and we look forward to seeing everyone we visit. Always a smile and always helpful. Thank you Colbert for all you do to make us happy at Varty Canp! Victoria

Eish, Signore!! My mpho at Varty. A man of many many talents indeed. Only 4 languages does give the credit he deserves, I have seen him in ‘action’ in spanish and italian too.
Besides the drumming he sometimes dances (he is bit shy, so you have to push him a little bit!) when the choir is in camp, if you think he is a good drummer, wait until you see him dancing. He legs are not bone and muscle, but entirely made out of flexible rubber!!
He is the person you want as a neighbour, as a friend and, yes, as a brother!!

keep up the good work!!

Colbert is the most amazing person.
Always smiling. Always welcoming.
I always look forward to seeing him at our next stay.
Better than family!

Whilst I’ve not met Colbert as I stayed at Founders Camp, I will attest to the fact that everyone I met from housekeeping to managers, always had a smile, a friendly word and insured a fabulous experience- so much that I’m returning next month! Thank you for sharing your story.
