It was on 18th August 2009, when Kafue River Cliff launched a luxury cruise boat known as Lady Betty.
The commissioning of the boat was bestowed in honor of Betty Kaunda, for her outstanding role in the country’s liberation struggle.
The occasion attracted dignitaries, such as first lady Thandiwe Banda, the wife of the fourth Zambian president, Rupiah Bwezani Banda and Mama Chibesa Kankasa, including Dr Kaunda, the first Zambian president, diplomatic corps, and Government officials.
The Boat Cruise and the River Cliff are owned by Lawrence Sikutwa and Associates (LSA) and LSA group of companies chairperson, Lawrence Sikutwa said the introduction of Lady Betty was part of the first phase of a four-star $12 million hotel project the LSA group was putting up at the River Cliff.
Lady Betty is an 80 sitter houseboat. It was made in Zimbabwe at a cost of US$ 300,000. It is self-contained, has a kitchen, conference capacity dining lounge and a well stocked bar.
