About Maggie May House Boat

A mere drive from Addo Elephant National Park lies the unique Maggie May House Boat where guests can unwind while sailing along the peaceful riverside.

Maggie May House Boat is composed of a kitchenette, living area, bedroom and a bathroom. The bedroom contains a double bed and guests can make use of the queen-size sleeper couch in the living area. A bathroom with a shower is included.

The lounge area and kitchenette provide basic amenities for a simple meal while afloat or enjoy the on-board braai. A tent can also be pitched on the roof if required and laundry facilities are available. Guests have access to Wi-Fi and pets are welcome by prior arrangement.

Maggie May House Boat is moored on a jetty during your stay and moorings up or down the river can be arranged at an extra charge per hour cruising time.
