We returned from two trips on Big Daddy. What a pleasure. The boat and staff were very pleasant and efficient. Definitely will be re booking the boat again.
Thank you for your very efficient and prompt organizing of our trips. Much appreciated.
Keep well and all the best for 2018.
We are safely back in Lusaka and I wanted to thank you so very much for all your help in organising a wonderful and memorable trip!
From Seki the transfer driver to Nyasha the supply man to the smiling crew of Big Daddy - you chose the best! So lovely!
We all had a spectacular time and put on a few KG's with the great cooking and super food.
All the best and we will be back!
Ferina (and the family) and Nadia & hers ...

I just wanted to thank you so very much for all your organisation and for making our holiday so very special. I’m certain we will be back! :)
Take care and thanks again it was fabulous.
