Dear Mo,

Thanks for taking the time to check all was okay.

We were well looked after and had no problems with the boat or staff. 

My Dad so enjoyed the novelty of being on a houseboat and seeing Kariba as a tourist – he was last there in 1965 when he was the doctor at Kariba Hospital.

Best regards,

Jenny

Hi Mo

We had a wonderful time thank you so much, loved sleeping in the cabins so completely open and waking up to that fabulous view – the staff were very friendly, attentive and helpful but at the same time elusive giving us our privacy.

The trip was just magical so thank you for everything, nothing negative at all to report and will definitely be recommending the boat on a winter trip it is just perfect.

Kind regards

Les
