Accommodation consists of 8 suites, each of them luxuriously decorated and built using typical African and natural materials. In addition to game drives and walks, guests are also able to enjoy overnight sleep-outs on unique tree-top platforms – a truly unforgettable experience.

Day 9
After breakfast you will be transferred by road to Umhlanga Rocks. Enjoy the last three nights at the Oyster Box Hotel, on bed and breakfast. A near-perfect beach location right on the edge of the Indian Ocean, this classically-influenced hotel offers luxury and comfort in great style, and yet is just a five minute walk from the excellent boutiques, restaurants and bars of Umhlanga village. Each of the 86 rooms is the last word in comfort, but choose one with an ocean view so that you can enjoy being lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves. By day, enjoy everything the beach and sea has to offer including snorkelling, fishing and surfing, and by night luxuriate in the hotel’s restaurants and bars.
