Rocktail Beach - Elephant Coast

Set on the Indian Ocean and around 5 hours drive north of Durban this secluded and romantic camp is surrounded by protected wilderness - where iSimangaliso Wetlands Park meets the warm azure waters of the Maputaland Marine Reserve. This is an area of remote unspoilt beaches, world class diving and abundant wildlife. 

A leisurely 20 minute stroll from the beach, the camp is tucked away amongst coastal forest and sand dunes. On land experience prolific bird life, antelope and other forest inhabitants whilst in the sea you will find huge shoals of fish, dolphins and whales. In season (Oct-Mar) the area also plays host to Leatherback and Loggerhead Turtles who come ashore to lay their eggs (pre booking reccomended).

Accommodation -  The 17 semi tented rooms have open decks, ceiling fans, ensuite facilities including an indoor shower and safe.

Facilities -  Dining room, lounge and swimming pool. An activities package can be booked locally which includes guided walks, snorkelling and a lake trip.
