Cruise-n-Snooze has been in operation since 2006. We are a family business, owner operated and we pride ourselves in providing personal attention to our clients and their needs.

We also pride ourselves in a clean safety record since 2006. We adhere to strict safety requirements as set out by SAMSA, and the owner provides the safety briefing and orientation personally at the beginning of each cruise. If you have no previous power boating experience, we go out with you on the river until you familiarize yourself with the houseboat and its operation.

We have received numerous compliments on the cleanliness of our facilities, as well as going the extra mile for our clients.

Most clients have an experience above their expectations. Al this results in a high percentage of returning customers, and referrals to us.

But do not take our word for it, here are some testimonials from clients.

· “What a stunning experience and what better way to spend a honeymoon! The boat is first class and there is not one thing one can fault on it. Definitely an experience to be repeated.”

· “Thanks for a real great weekend....I is so nice to meet such friendly and accommodating people as you and Raymond... Thank you..”

· “Once again, we had a fantastic time and have been telling EVERYONE about you guys.  We had a ball and what you offer is excellent value for money.  Thanks again”

· “We enjoyed our trip tremendously. Hope to do it again in the near future. Will recommend it to anyone. Thanks”

· “The houseboat far exceeded our expectations. The equipment in the boat is top class including the Gas oven and electric fridge. There are numerous places on the open water to anchor your boat, sleep and feel safe. Going up river the first 30 km you have excellent views of the magnificent properties lining the banks. There are also creeks with bird sanctuaries where you can stop for some bird watching.”

· “Firstly thank you so much for a great few days and for all the help with mooring, etc. We really felt at home, as if we had been coming to Cruise-n-Snooze regularly for years instead of our first time. The houseboat suited us, gentle cruising and relaxing, and whilst it may seem odd it was a pleasure for me to be able to move around for a few days without using a walking stick. Even the shower worked for me as there was nowhere to lose my balance and fall. A fantastic break and  you even managed to organize a change in the weather for the better. I’m taking credit for the fish all on my own.

             Thanks once again to both of you and we hope to come and stay again     soon.”

· “Just to thank you for the wonderful time we had at Vaal River. We will come back next October.”

· “Thanks so much for a wonderful weekend. “
