Shayamanzi River Tours operates two houseboats on South Africa’s fourth largest dam – Lake Jozini. The houseboats have six and ten double rooms respectively, all with huge windows with impressive views on to the water. All rooms are en-suite (however, the toilets and shower areas are relatively small). The smaller boat has electric fans in all rooms, and the larger, more modern boat is fully air-conditioned. These become essential features in the summer months when temperatures rapidly escalate. The upstairs lounge, bar and dining area is a supremely comfortable social zone and provides the base for a jovial time where guests can catch up on sport and news with satellite TV or just laze with a good read. Tender boats ferry guests on boat safaris or on exciting Tiger fishing trips. Various land-based activities can be organised through Shayamanzi’s brother lodge - Shayamoya.
