  • Description
  • Facilities
Rocktail Beach Camp is situated 700 metres from the beach within the sanctuary of the lush Maputaland Coastal Forest that blankets the ancient dunes. It lies within the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, which was formerly known as the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park. The camp is a brisk 15 minute walk through the indigenous forest to a pristine stretch of close to 40 km of unspoiled beaches. Offshore from these beaches lies the Maputaland Marine Reserve.

The camp consists of 17 rooms, nine standard rooms and eight suites. All the rooms have en-suite bathrooms, an open-feel indoor shower and overhead fans. Seven of the rooms are family suites with a shared bathroom and two bedrooms accommodating two adults and two children. The honeymoon suite has wonderful views over the dune forest and out onto the ocean.

Rocktail Beach Camp has a central dining room, bar and lounge with a large wrap-around veranda. A raised viewing deck just off the veranda has wide views that extend out to the ocean. The camp's main area has a large pool, curio shop and children’s playroom, complete with board games and other fun activities for families. From a scuba diving perspective, Rocktail Bay is unique. Not only is the diving conducted within a Reserve and World Heritage Site along unspoiled reefs, but divers have the luxury of knowing that they alone have access to these sites and are the only underwater visitors along this stretch of the coastline.

If you go - and you should - forget everything around you, and stay for min. 3 nights. It´s like in another world and there is so much to do, 3 nights is really a must! The "roomtents" are so fantastic, you can spend half a day just in there. The beach, diving, turtle drives and of course food and staff are all outstandingly perfect. Just enjoy!!

Having booked 3 nights at Rocktail Beach Camp, we thought about having a relaxed stay there after all this safaris! Once we arrived we remarked that we are in a true Paradise and we extended immediately our stay for 2 more nights! Thanks a lot for all the great hospitality!

We had a really great time at Rocktail Beach Camp. Lots of pristine beach time. Kids loved sandboarding and swimming in the sea. Snorkelling was great. Boat trip with dive centre was a highlight as we saw LOTS of whales breaching and dolphins travelling with us. Staff were all super helpful. Visitors should know that they need to sign up for organised activities - not so easy to do your own thing - as the beach is a little way away and the snorkelling a 20-minute 4x4 drive away from the camp.

I would say our only dissapointment was that it is not on the beach as I had expected but a 15 min walk away - otherwise highly recommended.

We had a lovely time and a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable field guide. We just felt that for the price we paid we could have expected four star rooms and food instead of between two and three star.
