This is a must if you like peace and tranquility. We stayed at Fish Eagle loft in the Goukamma Nature Reserve. This overlooks the river to where it meets the sea.
We virtually had the game reserve to ourselves apart from the birds and tortoise. There are marked walks within the park. You have to get the quirky boat across the river to the start of them. We did part of the bush pig walk up along the ridge with fantastic views of the river, river mouth and sea. We chose to walk back along the extensive beach. On the whole walk we only passed a family walking on the beach.

The standard of the cottages here is great. The one we stayed in had two double rooms, and open plan lounge with a small kitchen area, and a great barbeque area outside overlooking the lagoon and the beach in the distance. At dusk you see the most amazing sunsets from the barbeque area, while relaxing on the provided camping chairs around the fire. Wonderful peaceful setting and a close-to-nature feeling one cant get from a holiday home in Buffels Bay. We will be back.

An incredibly beautiful place. The beach is kind of windy, but the water is as blue as the sky and it is a lovely place to take a stroll by the beach or in the forest

This was a lovely forest walk close to the beach, there were quite a few options and attractions. When the weather is good, you can get in a few hours of canoeing and walking. Kids loved it.
