Nestled in a lush dune forest in beautiful Maputaland, Rocktail Beach Camp is a tropical beach paradise and diver’s dream destination.
Accommodations at the camp consist of seventeen rooms set in the indigenous forest. Most of the rooms have ocean views. There are ten standard tents which include five twin-bedded tents, four double-bedded tents, and one double bedded honeymoon suite. There are seven family tents with two adjoining bedrooms featuring one with a double bed and another with two three-quarter beds for up to two adults and two children. The bedrooms share a bathroom. Each room comes with an en suite bathroom with an open-feel indoor shower. The romantic honeymoon tent has magnificent views of the ocean and dune forest.
Rocktail Beach Camp is placed in the lush Maputaland Coastal Forest which blankets ancient dunes and is situated at Manzengwenya in the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, formerly known as the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park in the northern Kwa-Zulu Natal. While not a traditional game viewing area, there are red duiker and reedbuck around. Plus, birding is outstanding and includes a number of special coastal forest species. The reef systems are rich with soft and hard corals, and ample fish species such as butterfly fish and trigger fish, rockmover wrasse, various eels, sharks including the iconic whale shark and ragged-tooth, dolphins, and of course turtles.
