    The houseboat has 5 cabins sleeping up to 10 guests in absolute luxury. The cabins can be configured in twin or double beds. The crew are on hand to make your stay as comfortable as possible with delicious home cooked food and local drinks to keep you cool as you drift along this beautiful river.

    We have an eight seater photo boat with rotating chairs and custom built camera mounts and you can use it as often and for however long you like during daylight hours. We also have two other tender boats for fishing and taking to to explore the surrounding areas like Impalila Island or perhaps to pay a visit to a local fishing village.

    On board you will be well fed by the Pangolin Voyager Chefs – Sabrina and Melody – conjuring up delicacies throughout the day. The drinks are included and the fridges well stocked with local beers, soft drinks and wine.

    Meals are taken around the large dining table which neatly seats all ten guests. We do our best to accommodate specific requests especially when its a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary.

    The Houseboat is also a perfect place for you to host a club event or small corporate get together. Again we can endeavour to get you whatever you need in addition to the standard offering to help facilitate these safaris. We have an HD TV that we bring to the houseboat to allow for workshops and presentations in between all the other fun to be had onboard.
