A portion of the revenues from the camp is ploughed back into the local communities. It is situated on one of the finest stretches of coastline in South Africa.
This area is about one hour from St. Lucia resort and well worth the trip. A picnic area on the beach leads to flat rocky platforms containing potholes with marine flora and fauna.
At the summit of the dunes, at Mission Rocks Outpost, there is a picnic ground from which views may be had over the Lake system over Catalina Bay towards Charter's Creek. Five kilometres north of the picnic area on the beach is Bats Caves which are populated by large numbers of fruit eating bats.
The Mziki Trail takes visitors on a three day ramble over three different routes where they can experience the Eastern Shores at close quarters.
There is superb scuba diving on the inshore reefs and on summer nights, huge leatherback and loggerhead turtles come out of the sea to lay their eggs. There are nature walks through the dune forest or to nearby pans and vleis.
Five two bedroomed chalets, each bedroom with four beds. There is a bar and dining room with meals either being taken there or under the stars.
There are also self catering facilities. Each chalet has a deck that is located just below the canopy of the local dune forest. A wooden boardwalk connects the chalets with the beach.
