We had a wonderful time on the Unique. Every thing was fantastic. Thanks for making all the arrangements.
Best wishes Jeanette
My wife was just about to send a message to you in thanks for the trip.
From my part, I would like to thank you and commend you for your professional service and yet personal manner in which you assisted us. All on board had only positive comments about the boat and experience. We were totally spoiled by the service given by the crew. It was inspiring how well they worked together to make us comfortable. Chance was particularly talented with the limited ingredients that we had and we were always amazed by the dishes he created. Captain Cain was a real gentleman and showed patience with us specially while we were fishing (which was very successful). Alvin was a key man with lots of energy and also creative in setting the table every night. It was a trip to remember and I would have no hesitation in recommending the Unique to anyone looking for a 5 star cruise on the Lake.
It has been Rodger's pleasure to work with you, Everyone in our party couldn't believe how wonderful Unique was! It was such a "unique" way to have a holiday and we were spoilt in the good old African style.🏝
Thank you for all you did to convince us that we were going to have the best holiday ever!
All the best
Hi Mo. Just to let you know that we had a fantastic time on the Unique. The boat is beautifully appointed and the staff were extremely helpful. It was an added bonus to have the owners meet us on departure and arrival to make sure everything was OK.
Thanks for all your help.
