Rocktail Bay Lodge St.
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 snorkelling encounters with huge shoals of fish,
dolphins and whales.
The lodge is situated metres 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 kilometres of unspoilt, pristine coastline where it is possible to walk for hours without meeting another soul. Accommodation is in 11 tree-house chalets. Each en suite room has its own private balcony and an additional outdoor shower in the forest. The main area of the lodge has an inviting lounge and meals are enjoyed either in the separate dining room, at the poolside or under a huge Natal Mahogany tree.
At Manzengwenya, 11km south of the camp, Establishment have host own fully accredited dive centre. Establishment offer boating excursions out to sea around low tide to enjoy SCUBA (and snorkelling) on the pristine coral reefs offshore. (Please take special note that dive certification and pre-booking is compulsory for SCUBA activities). Other lodge activities include fly-fishing, snorkelling, swimming and drives to Black Rock, the nearby Hippo Pools and to the surrounding community in open 4x4 Land Rovers.
During the summer months Rocktail Bay Lodge is integrally involved in ongoing turtle research. Guests are able to accompany the resident turtle expert on research drives at low tide at night helping to monitor the turtles' nesting numbers and behaviour.
