Diving Rocktail Bay

Rocktail Bay - our own 'Big Five."
leatherback turtles, palm nut vultures, Buiton's skinks, lion fish and Zululand cycads.

The highlight here is the miles and miles of pristine and undeveloped coastline. In addition to 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 and fly fishing is among the best on the east coast. Nature walks through the coastal forest and grasslands, or drives in open 4x4 vehicles to Black Rock and other localities will enthrall naturalists and photographers. In summer, nocturnal walks and drives along the beach in search of egg laying sea turtles are a highlight. Scuba diving is available off shore (at extra cost).

Rocktail is home to an array of fascinating wildlife, none more so than the massive Leatherback, and Loggerhead Turtles that come ashore to nest and lay their eggs each year. The height of turtle activity occurs between October and March, with hatching occurring between January and March. During these times guests can choose to participate in evening turtle drives on the beach and to assist with the on-going turtle conservation research project.
