Rocktail Beach Camp, Maputaland, South Africa

Rocktail Beach Camp is an Adventures Camp

A pristine tropical beach and dive experience

Rocktail Beach Camp is set back in and shaded by the sanctuary of the lush Maputaland Coastal Forest covering the ancient dunes that make up the edge of South Africa's KwaZulu-Natal coast. With the Maputaland Marine Reserve just offshore and the beach a brisk 20-minute walk from the camp, there are plenty of beach adventures just waiting to be experienced. Each of its 17 rooms has an en-suite bathroom and an open-feel indoor shower. Seven of these are family units with a shared bathroom and two bedrooms for two adults and two children. A honeymoon unit has wonderful views over the ocean and dune forest. The main area boasts a central dining room, bar and lounge with large wrap-around veranda, a raised viewing deck, wine cellar, large pool, curio shop and children's playroom.

Highlights

  • World-class diving and snorkelling, unspoilt shore and beach adventures
  • Turtles come ashore at night to lay their eggs on the beach
  • A lush coastal forest, home to a variety of animals and birds
