Services & Facilities

The boats depart from the OppiDam Grounds charter base. If you get there after sunset, the first night will be spent at the charter base since no boats are allowed to leave the base at night. At the charter base, there is also secure parking for your vehicles.

A mandatory basic navigation course should be taken by all captains. Informing you is the first step in issuing a temporary skippers’ license. Captains who already possess a valid skippers’ licence will be excluded from the navigational course provided they present a copy of their licence. Most of our guests have never piloted a boat before, so you shouldn’t be too concerned if this is your first time.

While we service your houseboat, you may rent kayaks and pedal boats from us to keep yourself occupied.
Every day, from 09:00 to 11:00, our competent team will be available to service your boat.

The following are some of the areas that are taken care of during houseboat maintenance:

• A Refill of Fresh Water
• Refuelling (should it be required)
• Toilet-cleaning
• Waste Disposal
• Cleaning of the gas braai
• Replacement of LP Gas (should it be required)
• Performing a check of the engine’s cooling system and oil level
