More Information About Tantalika



Tender Boats are for fishing and game drives, distance dependant on fuel available. Clients are permitted to drive the boats IF they produce a valid Skippers Licence, otherwise the boats are strictly crew driven. If you would like to bring your own speedboat to be towed behind the houseboat, one of the houseboat tenders will be left behind, as towing 3 boats causes damage (please bring your own rope for towing and fuel.)


The upper deck has a large covered dining and bar area, with a CD player and is compatible with smartphones/USB Port/1 RCA Preout/Aux In (Clients to bring their own docking stations if required.) There is also a lovely splash pool on this deck. The Bermuda deck has an open-air shower for those wishing to cool down, but not get in the splash pool. The lower deck has a fully functioning kitchen with ample freezer and cold room space.The crew have their own cabin and ablutions.
