Rocktail Beach Camp is a rustic gem located in the verdant Maputaland Forest on Kwa Zulu Natal’s coast, just a short walk from fantastic diving, snorkelling and remote, unspoiled beaches.
There are 17 en suite rooms at Rocktail Beach Camp, all of which are tented and boutique in style. There are several rooms which are ideal for families, with two bedrooms and a shared bathroom, and there is also a honeymoon room with incredible views over the ocean and dune forest.
The main area of the camp features a large lounge, bar and covered dining area with wrap-round wooden deck, ideal for a twilight meal with views across the ocean. This central hub also includes a wine cellar, for choosing that perfect vino to accompany the chef's daily speciality.
When it comes to relaxing, Rocktail's large swimming pool is worth retreating to for a dip or just simply to kick back and read a book. The beaches around Rocktail Bay are stunning and can be reached in a few minutes' walk through the forest or by vehicle from lodge.
The scuba diving around Rocktail Bay is fantastic, taking place within a Reserve and World Heritage Site along unspoiled reefs. Divers of all levels are welcome, and there is an on-site PADI dive centre catering for both beginners and the more advanced. Other activities include fishing, snorkelling at Lala Nek, trips to Lake Sibaya, quad biking and beach walks.
