This World Heritage Site combines pristine forests with wetlands and marine ecology. The string of lakes, marshes, coral reefs and secluded beaches, make this north-eastern corner of South Africa a sub-tropical paradise.

 

The warm sea attracts a huge diversity of marine life including leatherback and loggerhead turtles that lay their eggs in the soft sand during summer.

Ragged-tooth sharks congregate off rocky reefs and bottlenose dolphins leap joyously in the wave break. Whale sharks are known to investigate boats and humpback whales migrate here in winter.
   
A sophisticated conservation model has been successfully implemented in Rocktail Bay, whereby a partnership between conservation authorities, local communities and Wilderness Safaris is successfully helping to preserve the area and create jobs.
