I have just booked my 3rd visit to The Agrican Queen. I can't wait to get on board again.
Nothing I could say would truly do justice to the work put in by the crew, nothing is too much trouble. Bobby has a smile that never slips, even when dealing with locks in the pouring rain. His wife, Cherry, is also sunny. Bonnie is a lovely lady, warm and gracious. Andy is Andy, like Marmite, I love him and the tales he tells. I come from Africa too, and I can vouch for his more outlandish tales, Africa is full of eccentric or slightly insane people.
I am so looking forward to my next visit. Hopefully Mother Nature will be kind enough to keep the river safe for cruising, but if not, I know I'm in for a fun time anyway.
