Lady Jacqueline

Lady Jacqueline

The Lady Jacqueline is a steel mono hull houseboat, moored at Bumi Hills harbour in the middle of Lake Kariba between Kariba town and Binga. She is fully equipped and furnished well and is ideal for groups of 4 to 10 people. Beyond that, it would get a little overcrowded and I would suggest one of the larger houseboats like the Catalina, Meremaid or Zambezi Cruise Safaris.

The advantage of being a mono hull cruiser is that she is faster and more manoeuvrable than the pontoon houseboats, the disadvantage is that she is not as wide as them with the huge decks that they have.

The two double cabins are air-conditioned as is the lounge area, with ample outside deck space to lap up the beautiful Kariba weather. The two smaller cabins are smaller and are cooled via an air-conditioner in the passageway. A Jacuzzi on the front deck completes this all-rounder houseboat.
