Wildlife at Rocktail Beach Camp

The coastal forest reserve around Rocktail is not a traditional game viewing area, but still abounds with a variety of life providing a natural contrast to the bush. Red duiker and reedbuck are found and birding is outstanding, with a number of special coastal forest species. The reef systems are prolific with soft and hard corals, and abundant fish species such as butterflyfish and triggerfish, rockmover wrasse, various eels, sharks including the iconic whale shark and ragged-tooth, dolphins and of course turtles.

A Quote From Our Guests

“ We are keen divers, and 3 days felt like 2 weeks in terms of how relaxed and rejuvenated we felt. This is an incredibly special and unique place - in a coastal nature reserve tucked away in the forest, with no other signs of life around - a deserted, untouched beach. ”
