Lady Betty Boat Cruise At Kafue River Cliff

Lady Betty! That was the only thought I had on my mind when I woke up on Monday of 8th March 2010. The day was a holiday; youth day.

Again, I wanted to visit Kafue River Cliff and have a boat cruise on this houseboat!

In case you didn’t know, the luxury houseboat was so named in honor of Betty Kaunda for her outstanding role in the liberation struggle when it was launched on 18th August 2009.

Preparations

In the morning we deliberated as a family where to spend this holiday. “Should we go to Sandy’s lodge or Kafue River cliff?”

Eventually the six of us headed for Kafue River Cliff.

If you plan to visit the place, it is 57 kilometers from Lusaka. You travel exactly 53 Kilometers towards Livingstone to reach the left turn-off leading to Kafue River Cliff. When you reach Kafue town you travel 8 kilometers past Kafue River Motel to reach the turn-off leading to Kafue River Cliff. The resort is 4 kilometers from Livingstone road turn-off.

At The Scene And The Charges

When we reached the gate, to our surprise, unlike the previous visit, the guard asked us to pay K 15, 000.00 per person. Things had changed!

We were further told that this time around the charge for a cruise, per person on the houseboat was K 100,000.00. (This price did not include meals).

A quick calculation showed that we would have to pay K 600,000.00 and that without meals on board! The other alternative we were told was a boat cruise for K 200,000.00 for a family of 7 people. This was a better deal since we were going to have meals as well, cheaply.

Yes, It was cheaper! We settled for the boat cruise. It was a turn around, instead of the “Lady”, it was a boat!

Indeed like they say, all this is history now. But the photos below tell a thousand words…
