Lucie and I are retired and have turned our energies to photography and videography, of which wildlife is by far the favorite subject. We have been to Africa every 2-3 years over the last 35 years. We have been to several camps in each of South Africa, Botswana, Kenya, Tanzania, Namibia, Uganda and Rwanda but Londolozi and Tiger Canyon are our go-to favorite places. We are unabashedly predator-centric and aviary-sated. And we are so thankful that the Varty family built this community-driven concept and has taught us all the meaning of "ubuntu".
