Rocktail Beach Camp enjoys a setting within iSimangaliso Wetland Park (formerly Greater St Lucia Wetlands Park) on the beautiful KwaZulu Natal coast. This coastline is largely untouched and unspoilt and is the location of a turtle research project. The camp has stong links with the local community with a special focus on educating local children about their environment and its wildlife.

Accommodation comprises 17 tented rooms, 7 of which cater for families and all have en-suite bathrooms. They are set on raised wooden decks and have large guazed windows which let in the sea breeze.

Communal facilities include a a lounge with an attractive veranda, a dining room and bar under a high roof cooled by ceiling fans. Most meals are served on the veranda or the deck by the large swimming pool. The scenery is varied and includes forested dunes, sandy beaches, freshwater lakes and woodlands and is all waiting to be explored. The forest around the camp can be explored with a guide or independently. 

The beach is about a 20 minute walk, or a 5 minute drive, from the camp. Swimming and snorkelling are popular and this is an excellent area for diving, with an acredited dive centre on site. The Maputaland Marine Reserve lies offshore, with its coral reefs, shoals of fish, dolphins and whales. The beach is used by loggerhead and leatherback turtles from October to March to lay their eggs, which you'll feel privileged to watch.
