Rocktail Beach Extension

Complement Your Safari with an Extension to the Unspoiled Indian Ocean Coast!
 » Enjoy the beauty and tranquility of this expansive beach, considered one of the best in the world
 » Immerse yourself in a colorful undersea world rich in marine life as you snorkel in the Indian Ocean
 » Relax at our isolated yet comfortable beach camp, offering unsurpassed coastal views

Rocktail Beach Camp is the perfect place to unwind after your southern African safari. Situated in a World Heritage Site within South Africa's Maputaland Coastal Forest Reserve, Rocktail Bay offers the chance to experience a side of South Africa that most tourists miss – the unspoiled Indian Ocean coast and its incredible natural beauty and abundant wildlife. The magnificent beach here is rivaled by few on earth, reason alone for a visit. Pristine and undeveloped, it was named as one of the 10 best in the world by Outside magazine. While Rocktail isn't traditional big-game country, it is home to an array of fascinating wildlife, including massive leatherback and loggerhead turtles, a variety of whales and dolphins, interesting antelope species, hippos and many species of rare and endangered birds.
