Day visitors to campsites per day ZAR20. (Jan 2015).

Campsites are within walking distance from the beach.

No cellphone reception in camp but if you drive out, you do get reception about 1km out of camp. (May 2015).

The beach is safe, but be warned that there are no shark nets here. (Jan 2015).

Watch out for the vervet monkeys, especially if you leave your campsite unattended - they will raid it. (Apr 2015).

Reportedly a nice camp in this area, and inside the iSimangaliso Wetland Park (the St Lucia Wetland Park). 2 to 3 days of camping and exploring here is ample. (Jan 2015).

 Travel Tip!

Try to avoid this area in peak season.
