We recently stayed on the Alister House Boat on Kariba. The boat itself is due for refurbishment which I think they delayed as we wanted to book it. Its the only smaller size houseboat advertised with three double rooms all with en-suite bathroom/showers with hot and cold water. The beds were comfortable and after the fresh air and sunshine of cruising we all slept well. The crew (4 men) were great. They managed all the routine chores on board including preparing and serving meals and cleaning up. They organised the tender boat so we could go and observe game on nearby islands and set up rods/bait so we could go fishing (and we caught plenty of bream for all to consume). They even organised an on-board brai. We saw a couple of tiger fish, elephants, impala and hippos along with lots of bird life. All in all it was a very relaxing break though it worked out quite expensive.
