Kraalbaai House Boats

The Kraalbaai HouseBoats are located in the West Coast National Park (SANParks), exactly at the shore of the Langebaan Lagoon. Kraalbaai is approximately an hour drive from Cape Town, South Africa. There are four houseboats at Kraalbaai (The Larus, Eve, The Eden and The Nirvana Houseboat). Guests get ferried to and from their houseboats during their stay at Kraalbaai. The houseboats are ideal for couples, groups of friends or colleagues as well as families. This unique experience gives guests the opportunity of "living on the water" with stunning lagoon views and all nature has to offer on your doorstep. The houseboats have the romantic and cozy feel to them-this makes them perfect for honeymooners too. Guests can take part in water activities right in front of their houseboats. The Kraalbaai HouseBoats are self catering but guests can be catered for on request. Guests are given the space to further explore the area by taking nature/ beach walks or going on a sunset cruise. The houseboats have wifi and cell phone reception. All the necessary braai utilities are available, plus the houseboats have fully equipped kitchens.

There’s a lot that guests can do when visiting Kraalbaai as it is in the West Coast National Park -the untouched nature reserve with a variety of activities such as birding, marine activities, game sightings and biking. Guests can also have a picnic with a view in the park with their loved ones. Biodiversity is very crucial in the West Coast National Park as the park was mainly established to protect the Langebaan Lagoon and surrounding landscapes, as well as the islands in Saldanha Bay, and stretches from Yzerfontein to Langebaan. As Kraalbaai is inside a national park, no motorized activities are allowed - this includes launching your own boat into the water.

*Children are allowed, but do count as adults towards the max allowed regardless of age and remain the responsibility of the parents and/or Gradians at all times.
