Camp to Coast

Dear traveller,

As you embark on your self-drive adventure from Camp Figtree Mountain Safari Lodge, the open road awaits, inviting you to explore the stunning landscapes of South Africa’s Eastern Cape. Kenton-on-Sea, just a short 1.5-hour drive Southeast, is a coastal gem that beckons travellers seeking the perfect blend of tranquil luxury and natural beauty.

Combining two unique destinations into a single itinerary lets you sample the sheer diversity of landscapes and activities on offer as you journey from Camp to Coast. As you leave Camp Figtree behind, the winding roads will guide you towards the hidden treasure of Kenton-on-Sea. 

Nestled between the Kariega and Bushman’s Rivers, this small coastal town embraces the sparkling Indian Ocean, offering a haven for nature enthusiasts and beach lovers alike. It’s often affectionately referred to as the ‘Jewel of the Sunshine Coast.’

The untouched, sandy shores stretch endlessly in both directions, inviting you to explore at your leisure. South Africa’s most breathtaking beaches are your playground here, where you can bask in the sun, take leisurely strolls along the shoreline, or dive into the invigorating waves of the Indian Ocean. Kenton-on-Sea is not just about its beaches, though. The town is surrounded by lush, indigenous vegetation, providing opportunities for nature walks and birdwatching. Don’t forget your binoculars and camera!

As a self-drive traveller, Kenton-on-Sea is the perfect addition to your adventure itinerary. Much like Camp Figtree, it offers a serene escape from the bustling city life, a place where you can reconnect with nature and create lasting memories with your loved ones.

Don’t just take our word for it – hear it from the people who matter most, our valued guests:

The Oyster Box, and Kenton-on-Sea, is a perfect place for some relaxing days. The location couldn’t be better. Stunning views to the tidal river and beaches, and a short 10 minutes walk to the centre of the village. The area is ideal for hiking (beach, sand dunes, cliffs). I’m sure you won’t find a better place to stay in Kenton. — Rune, Oslo Norway

A hidden gem in a beautiful place! Way more than we would expect from a self-catering. So nicely done with everything you could need. We loved our stay – very comfortable! Kenton on Sea is magical. One of the highlights of our trip – don’t miss it! — Naomi, Thailand

We absolutely loved our stay with the Oyster Collection. Our only regret? Not staying longer. If you are in the area, we highly recommend this place. You won’t be disappointed. — Sadie, Airbnb.
