Many holiday makers choose to visit the picturesque town of Hartbeespoort in the North West Province in South Africa. One of the many activities available in this region would be taking a boat cruise on the waters of the Hartbeespoort dam. In fact, many holiday makers consider a visit to the region incomplete unless a boat cruise in included in their holiday itinerary. There many factors that should be taken into consideration when planning your Hartbeespoort boat cruise.
A very attractive option would be the one to hire a house boat and instead of staying at chalets in Hartbeespoort dam you would overnight on the waters of the dam. This is a wonderful option because it actually allows visitors to charter their very own course. You can go as fast or slow as your like. The house boats are very easy to drive and they are a wonderful accommodation option that offers guests privacy and fantastic scenery.
Another option would be to make a booking with any one of the many operators at the dam. There are many different types of cruises of offer. You can choose from a variety of boats available. The duration of the cruise would differ from one operator to the next. You can opt for a romantic sun downer cruise or simply make a booking for the whole family for a one hour breakfast cruise. You can enjoy scenery that cannot be seen from land while relaxing to the feel of drifting along on the calm water.
It is very important that you determine your budget beforehand. Make sure that you know exactly how much you can afford to spend on the cruise. If you do not do this then you could end spending a lot more money than you can actually afford to. This can negatively affect your whole holiday experience. Another important tip to remember would be to try and arrange for a booking as far in advance as possible. Try not to leave the booking until the last minute. These operators do tend to become quite fully booked during the peak holiday or vacation season.
