Guest Book

The following comments were taken from our Guest Book when we were chartering Amarula in East Africa prior to continuing on our slow circumnavigation. We had a wonderful time sharing this undeveloped region with our guests and we’re delighted to have had the opportunity to enjoy it before the piracy became a real issue. 

Thank you all for your wonderful comments in our Guest Book. Knowing how much you enjoy your time with us makes it all worthwhile. There are so many to include, but here is a small sample.
