We had the most amazing time. The food was fabulous. The staff very friendly and attentive. Our lodge was the best. Very very nice spa treatment, felt wonderful afterwards...followed by a delicious lunch, some vino whilst enjoying the view......Wow. Will be back if the opportunity allows. And most definitely recommend it. Thank you for a great time. Liesl and Meyrick

Loved everything about our stay at Oceana - the setting between bush and beach, the attentive staff, the luxurious suites, the delicious food. I'd go back in a heartbeat and will be recommending it to everyone I know.

Just returned from one of the most amazing places on earth....Oceana Beach and wIldlife Reserve. We were treated like Royalty and enjoyed every minute of it. I can't wait to return. Since returning home, I've found myself longing for Oceana. From the moment you drive in to the sad departure,its absolutely amazing..I highly recommend it.

The views are stunning.... now to remember this does not have the big 5 here when doing the drives. It is gorgeous but no predators. Worth a trip though, I would hope back...
