As far as your surroundings and views are concerned, for a more scenic location you will have to go very, very far...
The romantic and picturesque setting next to the river makes Areena a special venue for a country wedding for up to 120 guests.
For smaller weddings our upstairs thatched conference room is a cosy setting for the ceremony.
Areena Riverside Resort is situated on the banks of the Kwelera tidal river, 23 km east of East London city centre, at the beginning of the Cape Wild Coast. The dream of Ed and Karen Rathbone to have a unique family resort became a reality some 28 years ago and soon grew from strength to strength. After a lot of hard work and dedication, the Caravan Park was voted S.A. Top Resort 2004, after gaining public interest and became the hideout for those wanting to experience quality family time in the heart of nature.
Areena is Four Star and AA Highly Recommended where you can wake up to the call of the Fish Eagles.
We offer you unsurpassed views of the river, wildlife, birds and surrounding wild coast vegetation where cruises to the river mouth and beach can be arranged
You can virtually fish from your tent on river front sites, and also park your boat along the jetty directly in front of you. And everyone loves to meet Abby, our friendly giraffe!
Most early mornings will provide you with a spectacular visit of buck, monkeys and dassies on the other side of the river.
Access to the beach is either by boat, river ferry, or a short trip by car. For the energetic, an interesting hike.
