These are the Sharks Point Cottages (4 x wendy houses) at Sharks Point.

There are 4 cottages each with a double bed matress in.
+ Are we able to get to the cottages in normal vehicles we will be brining a few 4x4 with us?
You can get there with a normal vehicle but you might extend your holiday by a couple of days if it starts raining. I suggest a 4x4 if work for a boss.
+ Are there any showering/toilet facilities available?
Yes we have showers and toilets. One shower (hot water) and toilet at the top cottage and one cold water shower and toilet at the bottom cottage.
You can also opt to use the bush shower where you need to heat the water in a Jerry can, or
You can always bath in the tidal pool
+ Is it safe?
It is probably safer than JHB at any time. The community will look after you.
+ Should I bring my own drinking water?
Yes it is adviseable to bring everything, including your own drinking water. The nearest town, Port St Johns is about an hours drive away.
+ Any shark nets ?
No there are no shark nets. You are more likely to be killed by the chair like you are sitting on right now than by a shark?
+ Are there life guards on duty?
No there are no life guards. There is a safe tidal pool. Allways respect the ocean and never swim or dive alone.
+ Are there any gillies available?
Yes, but please utilise the ones that John gives you. John is in charge and will sort you out with all you need. Joyce is the kitchen lady that will clean and help out with cooking, etc. Richard is the night guard.
+ What size chest freezer you have, as we do land up bringing a bit of bait?
I am not sure how many litres, but it is the normal size that you would find in a house, it is big enough I think.
+ Do you have braaing facilities?
Yes we have a couple of portable braai grids that you may use.
+ Is there anything else you think we may need to be aware of ?
The locals are good people, but they dont have a lot of money, so please do not tempt them into taking something from you.
Yes, we have a prepaid metre and the first cottage do have lights. For the rest you need to bring your own lights.
+ Can I bring my dog?
Dogs enjoy the unspoilt setting and are welcome.
+ If we run out of supplies, where do we shop?
Port St Jones is the closest town, but make that a day's outing. There you will be able to buy everything.
+ Have never heard of you guys. Where about excatly is Sharkspoint?
GPS, 31°46'23.24"S, 29°21'11.66"E Coming from Durban: Take the N2 South to Wild Coast Casino. Here you continue travelling on the R61 to Port St Johns. Turn right towards Mthatha once you are over the Umzimvubu River bridge. Travel for 20kms until you come to the Tombo Stores on your left. Turn left towards Isimilela hospital onto gravel road past Kraal Backpackers sign (approximately 37km), continue on for appr 5km and turn sharp left, continue for appr 5km and take the route to the left, contnue for appr 2km turn right. Ask the locals if you get lost. Coming from JHB: I think the best road is to go to Underburg, from there to Kokstad, and then you have 2 choices, either Mthatha or directly down to Port St Johns. Coming from Mthatha you turn of right at Tombo Stores (20km before Port St Johns) to Isimilela hospital and then the road is the same.
+ Do we need permits to drive on uncharted roads. Where can we obtain these?
Yes you do, contact Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism in Mthata, speak to Bongeka Mvakade 047 531 2887. She will e-mail of fax you the application form, "Authority to drive or use a motor vehicle in the Coastal Conservation Area i.t.o Environmental Conservation Decree, 1992 (Decree No.9 of 1992)".
+ Is there cutlery available
Yes we have pots and pans, knives, forks, plates, glasses, etc. I suggest you take some of your own if you are finicky about what you eat and drink out off, and remember, please add to the collection if you can.
+ We are in a 4x4 and would like to do a bit of offroad/backroad scenic travelling. Can we get from sharks point to coffee bay along the coastline in a 4 x 4?
Yes, you can get along the whole coastline. The routes you take will depend on yourself and the vehicle you have. Some roads are better than others but for most you will have an option on a route.
The best will be to buy a map from http://www.slingsbymaps.com/
+ Can we buy fish or seafood from the locals.
Yes you can.
who is the local community contact should I reqire assistance in an emergency, and where is the closet hospital in case of emergency?
Your community contact is Jefferey Diko and your Sharkspoint contact is John. Jeffery is also the owner of Sharkspoint. As you drive towards Sharkspoint you will find the Isilimela hospital on you right hand side at coordiantes, 31°44'2.82"S and 29°21'33.09"E. The hospital is approximately 10km before you get to Sharkspoint.
