The owner was very friendly and easy to talk to. They have thought through everything. We were there with our three young kids and we had everything we needed. the tent is very compfortable and clean. It was our first glamping experience and it was amazing. We strongly recommend the Gascon Safari Tent and we for sure come again. The kids loved the place, the fields they had access to, the bbq and the farm animals.
