Compliments of the season.
Yes we had a fantastic time in Kariba. Because of the rain it was nice and cool right through and the lake was not harsh.
As for the boat and crew, as always up to date and very friendly. This the same crew that has always taken us out and we have developed a cordial relationship with them.
The fishing and drinking was excellent. We will definitely come back to you soon for another trip.
