Houseboats on the Vaal River hire a self-drive houseboat and be captain of your own river adventure on the Vaal Barrage. Cruise the 55 km of South Africa’s most dynamic, permanently navigable inland waterway. We show you the ropes, help you chart your course and you become skipper of your river adventure. And then we provide 24-hour backup support in the unlikely event that you might need us.

It really is a special experience. In the September 2006 issue of Getaway magazine, their photojournalist wrote: The Old Willow houseboats rank as one of the most fun and relaxing weekends I’ve ever spent within an hour of Joburg. In the October issue, Old Willow No 7 Houseboat Charters is the Editor’s Choice. And then the Getaway news editor identified us as her No1 weekend outing in SA in the Feb 2007 issue.

David Batzofin, writing for the Saturday Star Travel Section in Feb 2007 said: It had truly been a memorable experience, it was two very happy intrepid adventurers that returned to reluctantly hand back the keys at the jetty. We are the exclusive operators of new Leisure Liner houseboats on Vaal waters and our eight marine architect designed boats are manufactured to the highest safety specifications.

Our boats have everything you need. Just bring your clothes, food and towels. Please enquire about our food hampers. The houseboat can sleep up to five people. Inside it has a four-cabin with a double bed and storage space, a fully appointed galley with gas stove, oven, fridge and sink. A small heads with a hot shower, chemical toilet and basin, an inside dining area that converts into a double bed and a radio/CD player.

Outside is a sitting area under a retractable awning and a charcoal braai. Deck chairs are provided on the upper deck. Explore the vibrant shorefront attractions, docking at restaurants, bars, spas, golf courses and a casino resort. Try your hand at water sports. Enjoy house-spotting on Millionaires’ Bend. Take to the skies in a gyrocopter. Test your skill with a fishing rod.

Haul out the twitching kit. Light up the on-board braai. Or just chill out in a tube towed behind the boat. An easy hour’s drive south from Joburg and you can be on your own self-drive charter adventure. No special license required. Just bring yourselves and a sense of adventure. No single night bookings are accepted over weekends or peak season/Christmas and Easter. Please enquire about specials, pensioner and peak season rates. Please note that petrol is an additional cost that is calculated at the end of the charter. Our charters are extremely popular, especially over weekends, and it is often necessary to book a number of weeks in advance. So don't delay - request a quote now.

Looking for that perfect getaway. Try a houseboat vacation on the Vaal River. We also have two self-catering Rondavels units that can accommodate four adults. We are situated on a peninsula in a dammed section of the Vaal River, also known as the Vaal Barrage. The peninsula has the Loch on the one side, and the Vaal River on the other. Cruise-N-Snooze houseboats and Rondavels units are on the Vaal River side of the peninsula.

The fully equipped luxury houseboats; rates starting from R1000 per night sleeps four people, and are moored in a private lagoon, separated from the main river by a 30mx20m island. Across from this private island stretches a 500m wide part of the Vaal River with Bird Island in between the banks. From here there is approximately 55 kilometres of navigable waters including the Loch and other tributaries, to be explored at your leisure. Before departing on your cruise, we teach you how to operate the houseboat and all the equipment on board. On board activities include fishing, bird watching, swimming, or just relaxing under the sun or starry skies. Places of interest on the riverbank include restaurants, bars, family entertainment venues, a casino, golf courses, spas, and etcetera.

The self-catering Rondavels offer an exclusive and serene getaway. It sleeps up to four or six people; one Rondavel has a queen-size bed and the second with two single beds. We supply an extra double bed mattress for two additional people. Separate enclosed toilet, shower and hand basin. Private entertainment area including braai facility, wash-up area and gas hob, overlooks Vaal River and the garden. Enjoy superb birding, water sports, fishing or simple relaxation. Boat launching facility available. Also ideal for Honeymoon couples and bridal photo shoots.

Cruise-n-Snooze attended a meeting with SAMSA on 16 February 2009 in which it was decided that SAMSA will issue self-drive houseboat operators with a letter exempting them from the requirement of having a 'skipper's license', until a formal system is put in place whereby a temporary certificate of competence will be issued before commencement of the cruise. This procedure still has to be formalized, but will probably consist of material that can be studied beforehand, and a written test. All this means is that we will continue with our normal briefing before your cruise, covering safety and conduct on the river, until this new evaluation system is put in place.
