Thank you so much for a lovely trip on the Philidelphia. Was really nice but the heat was unbearable hahaha. Please may you pass on a message to whoever made the Cake, it was so kind of her to do it for us and at no cost. My little niece loved her birthday and the cake, we really appreciated it. THANK YOU.
Just a quick note to let you know that we had a lovely, relaxing trip on Philadelphia.
It rained a lot but we still managed to catch enough bream for 2 suppers!!!
We loved the boat & the staff were excellent.
Thanks so much.
Just thought we’d let you know that all went very well with our trip to Kariba. We and our friends had a very relaxing time on the Philadelphia which was an excellent choice of boat. We were very comfortable on it and the food and service were excellent. We would definitely book it for any future trips we may embark on. Thank you.
All the best and thanks for everything.
Audrey & Daniel
Life is about exploring the world and discovering one's purpose. I must say our time on the Philadelphia was extremely fulfilling and an absolute joy. On behalf of my family and friends I would like to say thank you so much.
Let's keep in touch and stay blessed.
