Check Rates

This accommodation combines all of the amenities one would wish for in a top-end option with the manoeuvrability of your own private vessel. If you’ve never had a stay on a houseboat before, this your chance to experience it at its finest.

Whilst driving your houseboat around Maguga Dam, nature is all around you and notably below you – it is over a 100 meters deep and it's abundant with fish which you are allowed to catch. More fond of meat for dinner? Not to worry! The house boat is equipped with a kitchen that allows you to cook pretty much anything you could bring aboard. It has a fridge, an oven, a gas-operated stove as well as a braai.

With an extensive list of amenities included, you’ll hardly need anything more than a few good books to read while lazing away, soaking up the sun. In fact, the large upper deck of the houseboat could have been designed for just this in mind.

Other features of the boat such as a hot water shower, a dvd/tv set and an on-board Fishfinder make sure your stay on the houseboat will be nothing short of luxurious. Once you've found your mooring spot for the night, grab a bottle of wine, some olives and cheese and go to the upper deck to watch the sun set. Lounge around on the supersized beanbag for a little longer if it's a clear night: with virtually no light pollution, Maguga Dam will treat you to some of brightest starry skies you'll ever encounter.
