Sheltered by lush Maputaland Coastal Forest, Wilderness Safaris’ Rocktail Beach Camp is a world-class diving and snorkelling hotspot, offering unspoilt beachesand wide ocean views.
There are only 17 rooms in the camp, all of which have en-suite bathrooms. A honeymoon unit has wonderful views over the ocean and dune forest, while family units feature two bedrooms and a shared bathroom.
Facilities include a central dining room, bar and lounge with large wrap-around veranda. There’s also a children’s playroom complete with board games and other fun activities for families. Excursions are available (at extra cost) to Lake Sibaya, the surrounding community and Gugulesizwe, a joint venture between Wilderness Adventures and the community, where Sangoma visits and quadbiking are on offer. During summer guests can accompany nightly research drives to monitor turtle nesting numbers and behaviour. The sight of a 750kg leatherback turtle heaving herself up the beach to lay eggs is a once-in-a lifetime spectacle.
