About Areena Riverside Resort

At the start of the Wild Coast, Areena Riverside Resort and Private Game Reserve, is a piece of paradise on the Kwelera River.


Self Catering:
Choose from a variety of luxury four star fully equipped self catering family cottages, rondavels, timber chalets and double en suite units. All our units are fully equipped for self catering with linen and towels provided. The various units can sleep from two persons up to six persons per unit. Our five timber chalets are situated on the banks of the river and afford you the chance to game view and bird watch from the comfort of your private deck overlooking the river.

We also have well grassed camping sites in our superior graded resort. A large number of the sites boast river frontage on the tidal Kwelera River. A slipway and numerous jetties are available for guests who enjoy a bit of boating and skiing on our 5 km stretch of tidal river. Our clean and modern ablution blocks are situated throughout the caravan and camping resort. Our self service coin operated laundry is available 24 hours.

Paintball, canoeing and pellet gun target shooting are just some of the activities available. Our quad bike safari, an option of 20, 60 or 120 minutes, is a must followed by sundowners at the river front restaurant Areena Quays.
