We have just got back from our second trip and can only wish all 'family friend' resorts were as good as this, our 18month daughter was welcomed as a guest in her own right, with all her own needs meet, parents could really relax! Her toiletries were provided, toys, freshly prepared food ready at a time suited to her, all the staffed cared and looked after her and nothing was ever too much to ask.
This is by no means a placed just for families, the perfection here is that Simon and Cheryl have got the right balance of all guests, no matter what you require, the rest of the guests barely knew our daughter was around (other than the odd cry before bedtime!) But there are activities and relaxation places for everyone.
The food, is all incredible, I would say some of the best food we have eaten in South Africa (we have been here 3 years now), and great wine to go with it! Cheryl you should do a cookbook (with a kids section). We meet some lovely people, were treated as family, saw some great wildlife, learnt a moving story, and all in the most incredible setting.
If you are in South Africa, make sure you add this to your list of places to visit. Our thanks to Simon and Cheryl and the rest of the staff for making our time with you so relaxing and fun.
