We did not stay at the lodge but visited for the dune safari only. It's a great way to learn a bit about the environment in the local area. Beautiful scenery. Very knowledgable guide. Really enjoyed it.

The Lodge is actually inside a nature reserve and this created a sense of being on Safari. The room was fitted out for self catering and there was also a restaurant with excellent facilities. The...

My husband and I stayed here whilst in South Africa for my 50th birthday in January 2016. We were here for 3 nights, staying in a Comfortable room initially as there were no Luxury Chalets available. However, after the first night someone cancelled and we upgraded to a chalet. I would thoroughly recommend these as they are further away from...

We had a wonderful stay at Oyster Bay, despite getting lost on the way in the staff were really amazing about ensuring we made it there safely. I would highly recommend this place to everyone and the massage was brilliant.

Nice walkingpaths through the dunes and a wonderful long sandy beach. Long gravelroad to the guesthouse but it's worth. Dune drives and horseridings possible. We only stayed one night but we would like to stay longer.

This was my best ever breakaway, the dune safari was the ultimate!!!!! Only the breakfast menu could have changed daily! It can still be a set menu but have to change daily. We were booked in for three nights and the breakfast was the same every morning.

What an amazing place OysterBay Lodge is.... Built from barely nothing it is complete luxury. A wonderful suite, tastefully decorated with delightful bathroom and comfy beds. What more can you wish for.. Oh, views to die for, horse riding on the almost empty beaches. Staff at your back hand call... Please continue this dream, we loved it!
