Meremaid Houseboat

Meremaid Houseboat

The Meremaid Houseboat has a comfortable capacity of 12 guests in 6 beautiful double cabins, but can easily accommodate up to 18 guests. It is a semi-luxurious houseboat with spacious air-conditioned cabins containing wash-basin and mirror, in elegant yet simple design. The covered lounge, dining area and bar are quite inviting, with beautiful wood furnishing and comfortable seating.

The Meremaid is a traditional "pontoon" Kariba houseboat which makes travelling a bit slow, but the advantage is the wide-open decks and plenty of space to relax and enjoy bird and game viewing, as well as the scenery, whether on the sun beds or by the jacuzzi on the top deck.

The houseboat is serviced with a crew of four to take care of your every need. The crew consists of a captain, chef, and two deck hands with their own quarters and ablutions. The Meremaid houseboat has good facilities on board, including music equipment to entertain yourselves, CD player, as well as limited gym equipment.
