All in One Beach-Bush Lodge and Reserve

Oceana Beach and Wildlife Reserve is an eco-sanctuary in South Africa’s picturesque Eastern Cape Province for weary souls, a place of breathtaking beauty where animals roam free and guests are free to explore. Spectacular and unique, Oceana offers a truly authentic luxury boutique hotel experience and is perfectly positioned within a sprawling wildlife sanctuary, facing a pristine 7 km stretch of private beach. 

Find this blend of essential beach and wildlife reserve in Port Alfred, high up in the dunes on a 1 000-ha piece of land, exhibiting rolling green grasslands and lush indigenous thickets. Undulating down to the long white beaches of the area inviting your walks, your swims, snorkels and dives in nature, beach picnics and boat cruises to find dolphins and whales. 

Oceana Beach and Wildlife Reserve promises deluxe accommodation in individual chalets, in the Ocean Lodge and in the Private Ocean House. Feel as if you can swim to the ocean horizon from the super sparkly rim flow swimming pool. Game drives take you exploring the reserve to seek out the majestic buffalo, giraffe, sable, black impala and zebra. Appreciate marine life while snorkelling or fishing and spend long hours simply gazing at the ocean, walking the beach and sipping another cold one. 

The views and changing vistas are everything here, from the grasslands and safari landscape to the marine ocean sports and white beaches, Oceana has it all if you love the great outdoors, wildlife and ocean swimming. Chalets suit these activities and environment and their raised perspective accentuates the views. Stunning marble bathrooms, outside showers, and decks for the private chalets while the ocean lodge boasts additional luxury with its three open-plan suites. The private house features three bedrooms, perfect for families with children, featuring a plunge pool on a sunny deck, spacious lounges and more. 

Visit Port Alfred to see the river, the cute shops and delightful bridge, the vast beaches and the lush forests. Your suite at Oceana is conveniently close to civilisation but far enough away to be private in nature, a sensory explosion of nature and silence all at once. It’s close to other game reserves and to the Port Elizabeth airport and main roads. Oceana is lavish but remains understated and true to the conservation cause, so enjoy a holiday in the Eastern Cape, ensconced in a wildlife and beach setting.  

On-site attractions include safari drives, spa treatments, fine dining, games room, swimming and beach activities. Voyage2Africa customises your family package to this idyllic Eastern Cape coastal destination in South Africa.



Discover the Oceana Beach and Wildlife Reserve just 9km East of Port Alfred in Eastern Cape, South Africa, on 7 km of private beachfront, overlooking the Indian Ocean. Being the only wildlife reserve located on a beach in South Africa, this sanctuary is surrounded by a picturesque landscape both unique and spectacular. 

Oceana Beach and Wildlife Reserve could be described as the refuge where paradise and other-worldly perfection meet, where almost endless pristine beaches and rolling vegetation blend seamlessly against a backdrop of eternal skies. Oceana combines beach escapades, bush safaris and game viewing to provide the ultimate holiday indulgence. 

Appreciate a range of typical Port Alfred accommodation in 10 individually and sumptuously appointed suites – three of the lodge suites are positioned in the main house, while the 4 Ocean Suites are free-standing units that are beautifully placed amongst the trees. The Private Ocean House is a sole-use option and houses the other 3 suites. All 10 suites feature private viewing decks with spectacular bush and ocean panoramas. 

Do as you please at Oceana – game drives and walks, boat cruises and sundowner dune buggy rides. Enjoy 5-star dining at the top-class restaurant or escape to the beach for a romantic candlelit dinner. Sip champagne as the sun slowly makes its way below the horizon. Make virgin footsteps along the pristine beach and frolic in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. Spoil yourself with a spa treatment and spot buffalo, rhinos and giraffes on a game drive through the reserve. And there are many more water and land-based activities at this Eastern Cape reserve to keep you entertained!
