Damon Beard, East coast radio presenter, joined us on a cruise on 16 August.
Here he is with Captain Alan and the crew. This is what he had to say;
“We all had such a brilliant time and just loved the group we were with.
We all got on so well and had an absolute blast. Thank you so much once again. It was the best weekend I’ve ever had”
Antonella won the Shayamanzi/East coast Radio prize, presented by Damon Beard and took hubby Gary on a cruise on the 4 to 6 October Social cruise.
Here they are with Captain Alan. This is what she had to say;
On behalf of my husband and myself, we would just like to say a big “THANK YOU” for our fabulous mini-moon! We had a super relaxing and most enjoyable time on Shayamanzi. Gary caught 3 tiger fish but missed a few “biggie’s” as they cut the fishing line completely! The Captain, Alan, and staff on the boat were most pleasant and did a great job of consistently feeding us tasty food.
SUMMER IS HERE!
Slowly but surely, we are moving towards those very hot days! The elephant herd is still very active, with sightings occurring on almost every cruise.
Migrating birds are arriving and can be seen on the edge of the lake in their abundance. Truly a birdwatcher’s paradise!
What a Catch!
Congratulations Aren Govender.
We appreciate your great feedback: “Keep up the excellent service.
My experience on the cruise was unforgettable!”
