Rocktail Bay Lodge (Maputaland Coastal Forest Reserve, KwaZulu-Natal) South Africa


Rocktail Bay Lodge (Maputaland Coastal Forest Reserve, KwaZulu-Natal) South Africa - Location:

Rocktail Bay Lodge is situated in the northern reaches of the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park in northern KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

This whole area has been declared a World Heritage Site. Situated offshore from Rocktail Bay is the Maputaland Marine Reserve which offers an additional sanctuary with extraordinary diving and snorkeling encounters with huge shoals of fish, dolphins and whales.

The lodge is situated meters inland from the warm Indian Ocean and one of the most incredible beaches in all of South Africa. The lodge is built out of the wind, just inland from the beach within the forest canopy of vegetated dunes that occur along Maputaland's coastline. Rocktail offers perhaps the most private beach experience in South Africa, with nearly 40 kilometers of unspoilt, pristine coastline where it is possible to walk for hours without meeting another soul.

Room at Rocktail Bay Lodge (Maputaland Coastal Forest Reserve, KwaZulu-Natal) South Africa -

Rocktail Bay is one of the most private and romantic getaways in South Africa.

Ten wood and thatch "tree house" chalets & a Family Room are raised up on stilts into the canopy of the dune forest.

The chalets have en-suite shower and toilet facilities. Each room has its own balcony and an additional outdoor shower. Twenty guests can be accommodated comfortably.

The Lounge at Rocktail Bay Lodge (Maputaland Coastal Forest Reserve, KwaZulu-Natal) South Africa -

The main area of the lodge has an inviting lounge and meals are enjoyed either in the separate dining room or outdoors under a huge Natal Mahogany Tree. On special occasions, beach dinners can be enjoyed with the sounds of the forest and waves at your doorstep! A boardwalk meanders from the lodge through the dune forest and down to the beach. There is a swimming pool and sun deck for those who want to relax around the lodge. The lodge also boasts its own well-stocked wine cellar.

At Manzengwenya, 11km south of the camp, we have our own fully accredited dive center. We offer boating excursions out to sea around low tide to enjoy SCUBA (and snorkeling) on the pristine coral reefs offshore.

(Please take special note that dive certification and pre-booking is compulsory for SCUBA activities).

Diving at Rocktail Bay Lodge (Maputaland Coastal Forest Reserve, KwaZulu-Natal) South Africa - Activities:

In addition to just simply sunning yourself on the clean golden beaches, a variety of guided activities are available. The Indian ocean is ideal for snorkeling in search of tropical fish (flippers and snorkels may be borrowed at the lodge) while surf fishing is reputed to be amongst the best on the east coast.

Nature walks through coastal forest and grasslands, or drives in open 4x4 vehicles to Black Rock and other localities will enthrall naturalists and photographers. The spectacular Lake Sibaya is a short drive away. In summer, nocturnal expeditions along the beach in search of egg-laying turtles can be arranged. There is a swimming pool and a sun deck for those who want to relax around the lodge.

This is not Big Game Country - although we have our own "BIG FIVE" - Leatherback Turtle, Palmnut Vulture, Buitons Skink, Lion Fish and Zululand Cycad. The interesting antelope that occur are Common Reedbuck in marshes and grasslands, and Red Duiker in forest patches; Hippo are found in fresh water lakes. Whales and Dolphins are sometimes seen offshore.

Other lodge activities include fly-fishing, snorkeling, swimming and drives to Black Rock, the nearby Hippo Pools and to the surrounding community in open 4x4 Land Rovers.

Birding is good and a number of typical coastal species occur - Green Twinspot, Green Coucal, Grey Waxbill, Purplecrested and Livingston's Louries. Natal Robin and jewel-like Emerald Cuckoo in forests, and Pinkthroated Longclaw and Rufonsbellied Heron in marshy areas. Various waders frequent the shoreline.
