"We had a fantastic time on Unique Houseboat. 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 great."


"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.🏝 Best holiday ever! "


"We had a wonderful time on the Unique. Everything was fantastic!"


"All on board had only positive comments about the boat and experience. We were totally spoiled by the service given by the crew. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Unique to anyone looking for a 5 star cruise on the Lake."
