The 75km of coastline that lies to the west of Port Alfred
is amongst the most alluring in the country, with wild and rural landscapes backing broad sand-dune beaches between glorious river mouths.
The most interesting accommodation options are Sibuya Forest Camp
and Sibuya River Camp
on a pretty little wildlife reserve which is accessed by boat from Kenton-on-Sea.
A little to the north is the much larger wildlife reserve of Kariega, which has free-roaming elephants, rhinos and lions. Our favourite accommodation here is the quaint Kariega Homestead
Further west is the rural retreat of Sebumo Tude
, a great lower cost base for daytrips along the coast.
The pretty seaside village of Kenton-on-Sea has a range of beach accommodation. The best at-home guesthouse is probably River Roost
, whilst Oyster Box
is certainly one of the best house rentals.
