Oceana Beach & Wildlife Reserve
A Mantis Eco Lodge Experience
Where heaven, earth and ocean meet
One of the few places in Africa where you can combine beach, bush and wildlife in one experience. Offering a variety of suite options; world-class, seasonal dining, and a sublime wellness center; Oceana feels more like a boutique hotel in the bush. This is a unique experience that is easily enjoyed before or after Big Five safaris. With a 13km stretch of private beach, and an array of wildlife species such as giraffe, zebra, sable and black impala – the Oceana experience is distinctly South African.

The beauty of the variety of room options at Oceana goes beyond great design, fine linens, and individual style. Every kind of holiday fits perfectly here. Prized family vacations with grandparents, aunts and cousins, honeymoons and girls’ weekends are lived out comfortably at Oceana.

On the reserve
Situated just outside of Port Alfred, Oceana Beach and Wildlife Reserve is a gem on the Sunshine Coast. Turn off the main road into a gate surrounded by lush bushes and unearth a refined adventure. This area is well-known for water sports experiences, skydiving, fishing, and historical sites. Oceana is a short drive from many activities and easily accessible from a few Big Five safari reserves.
