Our new yacht’s name is Songa

The story of Songa and where it came from.

Here’s some stories of where the name Songa may have come from.

Songa mbele is Swahili for move forward. This essentially describes what our new yacht is all about. It’s our way of moving forward with our life, our aspirations, and our dreams of travel.

Or …

Sonja’s nephew, when he was learning to speak, pronounced Sonja as Songa.

I’ll let you guess which one is the real story?

While researching the suitability of the name we stumbled across some songs called Songa. One song in particular caught our ear. It’s by Eddy Kenzo, a Ugandan musician, and we’ve adopted it for our new yacht. It’s a cool song. Listen to it here.
