This houseboat sleeps 16 it is licensed for 12 passengers plus crew.  It has 3 comfortable double bed cabins, 2 of which have en-suite shower/toilet facilities, and 1 Twin room with 2 single beds with a further 2 separate shower toilet facilities.  These rooms are carpeted and fitted out with double bed white duvets.  They are air conditioned and have fans  (aircons run on generator which will only run at controlled times and have to be switched off by 10pm).  For those that appreciate the outdoors, the top deck has mattresses/ linen and mozzi nets to accommodate 10 people very comfortably. The energy source is run on invertor batteries. The generator is only necessary for air conditioners.  Therefore this is a fairly silent facility.  If hot water is required there are gas heaters and a pressure pump to ensure very comfortable showers (inform staff as they switch these facilities on when needed).  

The houseboat comes with 2 tender boats.  Firstly a spacious raft with a shelter and driven by a 40 HP mercury engine.  Secondly a 18 foot wolf speed boat with a 115 Mariner 2 Stroke outboard motor also with a shade facility.  (only to be driven by licensed staff members) if you desire the freedom of your own boat that is to be organized so as leave the necessary tender.  Top deck has a central bar / eating facility where your food is served.  Top deck also includes a Jacuzzi splash pool and a gas braai.
