As you’re transferred the final few miles into Rocktail Beach Camp, you can reflect on the remoteness of your location, in the last stretch of coastal forest before the Mozambique border. Which makes the comfort and style of the beach camp all the more surprising. The communal lounges are welcoming, and are tastefully decorated with African art and artifacts, with the high thatched ceiling creating a feeling of bringing the outside indoors – helped by the building being open sided. The rooms are tented but quite luxurious – sturdy furnishings are made from driftwood and are cooled by ceiling fans and the fact that most of the tent sides can be rolled up to leave just mosquito netting, allowing cooling breezes through the room. The beach is a short walk away through the forest, which has marked trails if you wish to explore it. You can go snorkeling and diving, or take a guide off to learn more about the flora, fauna and birds of the forest.
