Oceana Beach and Wildlife Reserve

Oceana Beach and Wildlife Reserve is nestled among surprisingly wildlife-rich coastal bush near the town of Port Alfred in South Africa’s Eastern Cape. The Oceana is unusual in Africa in providing both wildlife viewing and beach experiences. The resort is famed for its first class service and luxurious accommodation. The large central building is superbly decorated and offers guests a fine dining restaurant, gym, swimming pool and a large outdoor sun deck that gives panoramic views of the Indian Ocean and private beach below.

Accommodation at the Oceana Beach and Wildlife Reserve is split between lodge and ocean suites and the separate self-catering Ocean House. The three lodge suites adjoin the main building but still offer plenty of privacy. Each has been individually designed and decorated with warm African colours. All suites offer grand four poster king beds that lead to an open plan lounge with seating, a small dining table, satellite television and DVD player and a safety deposit box. A modern private bathroom with under floor heating, his and hers washbasins, large walk-in shower and Jacuzzi is attached to each suite. The four ocean suites are in separate thatched roof modern buildings that offer greater space and privacy, as well as minibars, tea and coffee facilities and a shower room with a sea view.

The self-catering Ocean House has a full range of facilities including extensive kitchen, lounge, private parking, plasma TV and three large bedrooms all with Jacuzzi bathrooms.

All the accommodation options include climate control, room service and free WiFi, and a full range of activities and services are available. Guests can enjoy game drives in the private reserve where sightings of giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, kudu, bontebok, Cape buffalo and even white rhino are likely and (with luck) the beautiful but rare sable antelope. The reserve also includes a private stretch of pristine beach with deck and sun loungers and also offers spa treatments and off-site adventure activities such as horse riding, archery, hydro bikes, canoeing, sea and river cruises,snorkelling and diving.

We thoroughly enjoyed the holiday. Leopard View was fantastic. The guide did his upmost for us and the rest of the game viewing was great. We saw everything that we wanted to see.
