Oceana Beach & Wildlife Reserve in Port Alfred, Eastern Cape, South Africa offers ultra-luxurious accommodation that includes a select group of unique guest suites in the Ocean Lodge and Private Ocean House as well as spectacular individual private chalets. Our Africa-shaped knife-edge pool has a marked point where you can rest your chin that is the absolute centre of Oceana.

It is a heavenly place in the Eastern Cape, just outside of a tiny jewel of a village called Port Alfred. Oceana Beach & Wildlife Reserve is individually and sumptuously appointed; suites are spread along the wave of the Indian Ocean and the reserve facing vistas overlooking sweeping plains.

Oceana Beach & Wildlife Reserve is a sanctuary for weary souls, a place of breathtaking beauty, where animals roam free and guests are free to explore.

Accommodation
All the suites at Oceana offer privacy, serenity and opulence in equal measure, from the moment you enter our peaceful reserve until you leave, our guests are the richer for the experience.

Sip on a glass of wine in front of the wooden fire place, or enjoy a cocktail while looking out onto the reserve, scouting for animals drinking from the waterhole or grazing in front of the lodge. From June to Sep you can even enjoy watching the Whales coming past and Dolphins playing in the Ocean.

From the Central Bar Area, you walk out onto the beautifully appointed courtyard and pool area, where you can lie on the pool loungers while soaking up a bit of sun, or cool down in the Africa shaped swimming pool.

Activities:

At Oceana we know that living the African Dream is all about experiencing the great outdoors, smelling the fragrance of the earth as the rain falls, feeling the warmth of the sun warming ones soul and the incredible thrill of looking for animals in their natural habitat. Because we also know that each of our guests live life at a different pace, we are also able to tailor-make our game experiences, and our ranger can offer the game experience that each has always dreamed of. We view game from the vantage point of our elevated veranda, while sipping warm coffee at the crack of an African dawn, or at the colourful end of a perfect day.

You are invited to climb aboard a safari vehicle and as the lazy African afternoons stretch out seemingly endlessly, spot our range of free to roam animals. We pack sundowners and stop at any number of vantage points so that our very special guests can live the dream that we are lucky enough to call our home Oceana Beach & Wildlife Reserve.
