“Call it a clan, call it a tribe, call it a family. Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one!” – Jane Howard
On-board Shayamanzi, April is the month that we celebrate the family!
After a frenetic start to 2015, we have the first chance to stop, catch our breath and spend some quality time with those who are nearest and dearest to us. It is hard to believe that we are at the end of the first quarter and near the end of the fishing season – so, if you have not made any plans for some quality family time this year, give us a shout.
We believe that a trip away aboard either Shayamanzi I or II is the perfect escape for families that often rush past each other as they struggle to fit work, school, domestic chores, sport and more into a single day – every day. At anchor in the middle of the beautiful Lake Jozini, you can enjoy a stint of tiger fishing, simply relax in our shipshape lounges or recline on the deck. You can even take a shuttle boat for some game and bird viewing from the other side of the water’s edge!
Our great new mountain biking cruises are great for father and son bonding while a giggle in the Jacuzzi or time spent tanning on deck is always popular with the girls…. and remember that fishing is not just for the guys. As our crew will tell you, it is often wives and sisters that hook the big ones!
However, for us, the best time to reconnect is in the evenings. The Shayamanzi crew – lay a beautiful table every evening where you can relax and enjoy some scrumptious home cooked food whilst catching up, reminiscing and planning for the rest of the year!
Most important of all, remember that April is not the only month that we go all out for the family. Throughout the year, we enjoy marking those special occasions and celebrating special family events with our guests – from birthdays and anniversaries to wedding proposals, hens and bulls parties. Bigger families or groups can charter the whole boat or you could join with family friends and share a boat.
If you’re planning ahead for a special family getaway, why not charter Shayamanzi Houseboats for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or even a family Christmas vacation to remember. If family are joining you from aboard, Shayamanzi Houseboats is the perfect place to get reacquainted against the beautiful backdrop of Africa and the Lebombo Mountains.
So, we look forward to welcoming you and your family on-board Shayamanzi Houseboats in the very near future.
Until then – bon voyage!
