Highlights of South Africa

Rocktail Bay

Scroll

20km north of Mabibi and accessible only to those staying at Rocktail Beach Camp (and Rocktail Bay Lodge if and when it re-opens), Rocktail Bay offers a quiet and unspoilt beach with access to world-class scuba diving together with snorkelling at low tide in the bay. Pregnant ragged-tooth sharks migrate north up the KwaZulu-Natal coast from late September to May, providing a major attraction for scuba divers. On land, there is no big game but bird watching is excellent with many rare species including the palm-nut vulture. Excursions to Black Rock, a fossilised dune, are available and it is possible to watch loggerhead and leatherback turtles laying eggs on the beach in the summer months (Nov-Mar). Rocktail Beach Camp, popular with families, has an equipped scuba diving shop adjacent. The beach itself is accessed by a forest trail (transfers and picnics can be arranged).
