Rafiki Beach Camp - Matapalo

Rafiki Beach Camp - Matapalo

The Rafiki Beach Camp, also managed by the Boshoff family that runs Rafiki Safari Lodge, is a sublime destination in the quiet village of Matapalo on the Pacific coast. Being an off-the-beaten-track location, you will have the beautiful beach almost to yourself here.

Your hotel
You will spend the night in a spacious safari tent at Rafiki Beach Camp. Breakfast is included in your stay. As the beach is at your doorstep, go for a morning dive in the sea or the pool. In addition, you might spot sloths and monkeys on the hotel property.

In the evening, you can go for dinner in the local town of Matapalo (La Langosta Feliz on the other side of the coastal highway is a local favorite) or drive down to the vibrant beach town of Dominical.
