We cannot speak highly enough of the 'family Stewart' team- 2 nights in the extremely luxurious luxury tents followed two previous nights at a more standard 'big five ' resort- because of this the stay was tailored to our needs perfectly- night drive, walking safari, quad bike safari, visit to old frontier fort and fishing on the Big Fish River- and we all caught something! Two ten year olds were accommodated with an ease and friendliness that was natural and welcomed, Iain our ranger and one of the family was fantastically knowledgeable and shared it with all of us generously, including the great night skies and stars- he even offered to give my wife and I a sleep in whilst taking the boys quad biking and fishing but I didn't want to miss out on the quad bikes! Food was excellent and professional, sun downers at the fire with family, fascinating to hear how they have got to where they are - Good luck and well deserved success should be ahead of you- We would all recommend this resort wholeheartedly and will be back! Plenty to do and see.
