I would like to thank you for helping us making our trip a success. Everyone enjoyed throughly, there were no complaints. The staff was pleasant and helpful, the food was very good and up to standard.
Thank you very much
Good morning Mo,
I just wanted to write to you to thank you for all that you did to prepare our trip. Especially during a tough time.
We had an absolute ball. I have traveled many places around the world.. I've even been on luxurious style houseboats in Australia aswell and this was by far my most favourite holiday to date.
The staff on the boat were professional and friendly and did their upmost to make our trip comfortable and fun. The "captain", Baba P, and Tafadzwa were truly exceptional and our holiday wouldn't have been the same without them.
The only bad thing to report about the trip was... that it ended!
Such a relaxing, memorable trip. Hoping to make it an annual family thing from now on.
Sorry for the late response things have been pretty hectic here.
It was a wonderful trip enjoyed by all. A really memorable one for our visitors.
Lots of game only a slight disappointment at seeing the low level of the lake and not much fish caught.
The crew as usual were excellent and no complaints there at all.
We will always use your services as the group are familiar with the crew and it makes a big difference.
Thanks again and all the best for the Xmas and the New Year.
We had a great time thanks. The staff and food were excellent and we will definitely be back!
Yes we had a really wonderful holiday lots of memories, fun and laughter.
It was so nice to get away from all the hustle and bustle of the city.
The crew were excellent and took good care of us all including the children.
The food was also excellent and I think we all came back with a couple of ins.
We all had such a good time and if it were possible would have extended for another day or two.
Thanks for everything and will certainly use you when next we require a house boat,
