Oceana Beach and Wildlife Reserve
Oceana Beach and Wildlife Reserve Review
South Africa's only beachside wildlife reserve, Oceana Beach and Wildlife Reserve is set on 2,471 rolling acres that hug 7 km (4 mi) of private beach and Indian Ocean. Though this isn't Big Five country, the reserve is home to White Rhino, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, blue wildebeest, and a variety of antelope. The reserve's close proximity to both Port Elizabeth and East London make this a great game-viewing option for those that have only a few hours. The pristine, untouched beach is guaranteed to be unlike anything you've experienced in the states. There are no lifeguards or signs to restrict you from walking on the dunes, which are vertical not horizontal. Be sure to wear shoes, the sand is peppered with coral. Swimming is prohibited, but this is a great place for rock and surf fishing.
