Stunning camp spot but unfortunately it is general knowledge that the crime in the area is very high so would not recommend camping here. Perfect for day visit/braai.

Unfortunately you can't visit the lighthouse on a Sunday as its closed . The area is interesting and wild lots the waves crashing against the rocks is pretty spectacular . Well worth a visit if you are in the area .

Our U.K. tourists spent an hour here to walk around the shoreline and watch the waves crash over the many rocks. Of equal interest to me was looking at the impressive SA camping trailers and tents for those spending weekend in Park. Most impressive features...More

We love exploring during our hols and drove through the nature reserve during one of our days out. It is really lovely. You need to take a bit of care driving however, as the road is mainly unmade. We have a silly little hire car,...More
