The Eastern Shores is the ideal beach and safari destination. A number of game viewing roads offer intimate access to varied habitats including dunes, grassland, lakes, pans and coastal dune forest. Lookout points provide panoramic vistas over a landscape shaped by human residence in Iron Age times and by the Bhangazi people. Popular beach destinations are found at Cape Vidal and Mission Rocks.
A range of accommodation is available at Cape Vidal, all of which is operated by Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife. The campsite consists of 50 sites for camping and caravans. There are a number of 8 and 5 sleeper log cabins, as well as self-catering units known as the Fishing Cabins and the 8-sleeper Bhangazi Bush Lodge on the edge of Lake Bhangazi, some 10km from Cape Vidal.
At Mtubatuba, leave the N2 and drive towards the town of St Lucia along the R618. As you reach the town, cross the bridge over Lake St Lucia and turn left at the T-junction. Continue for 3km until you reach the Bhangazi Gate. Cape Vidal is 33km north of this gate.
