Paster Lester

The Zambezi Trader, with all its trimmings, immediately dispelled all my personal fears and misgivings as warm smiles and friendly staff welcomed me aboard.
To anyone considering a trip on the Zambezi Trader I say, “THIS IS NOT JUST ANOTHER HOUSEBOAT. NO! It is a unique floating hotel with an atmosphere and vibe like no other”. May each trip be as successful.
