We had a great time on the boat. Hooked up some decent Bass and enjoyed the beauty of Swaziland from a different perspective.

The boat was a great experience and the skipper who showed us how to operate the boar and who did the cleaning everyday (Kingdom) was super helpful and friendly. However, the solar geyser didn't work so for 4 days we didn't have any warm water to shower with - we had to boil water in the kettle and then put it in the basin to just wash ourselves off but we couldn't take a proper shower and wash...

We arrived to board the boat finding that the boat need to be repaired. If they could at least inform us that we don't need to drive all the way. If you have customers on the way at least go though your checklist to see if the boat is mobile or not. I wanted to do something different for our anniversary... We had to get other accomodation elsewhere. NO STARS AT ALL!!

The boat was not supplied with a tender or a boat hook and it was not possible to go ashore anywhere around the dam. The boat was too small for a comfortable stay for 4 adults - the shower space was just too small. The weather however turned nasty thus making it possible to stay only one night.
