Dear Maureen ,
Sorry for the delay in responding but we went to Mana for a week after Kariba. The house boat was amazing and the staff were very accommodating,nothing was too much. I will definitely be making another booking on Tehilla , I am glad you recommend it.
Thanks a lot , we appreciated it
Thanks & Regards
Thanks for the reply Mo. We would really recommend you and Tehilla to anyone wanting
A houseboat trip - awesome all round thanks!!
Thank you for your email .
We had a wonderful time , as always, the booking process was efficient , the boat clean and crew very helpful and friendly .
Thanks again for all your help. We all enjoyed our stay on the Tehilla. We will definitely be making our bookings with you whenever we decide to visit Kariba again.
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.
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.
