You will stay for 7 nights in the executive luxury penthouse of African Perfection Guest House. The guest house is positioned on the edge of Supertubes. You can choose from mini suites, family suites, seafront suites or the loft suite. All nine luxurious suites are individual decorated with a distinct and celebrated African sentiment.

They are adapted at your personal needs including a mini-bar, satellite TV, current magazines, bath oils and body lotions, and a private balcony with a breath-taking ocean view. This balcony gives you a view upon the legendary perfect right hand surf breaks Jeffrey’s Bay offers.

The loft suite has room for four to six people. It has two bathrooms, a living room, and its own kitchen. The loft suite exists out of several spaces segregated from each other by removable partitions which create a spacious feeling.

In the basement of African Perfection Guest house, you will find a restaurant and sushi bar called Twenty Pepper Street. Here, the menu offers a wide diversity of meals; from a continental breakfast to the best sushi, prepared by the singing cook ‘Steve Walsh’ and his well trained staff.

Wake up with the morning sun, have an early surfing session before having a delicious breakfast in the a la carte restaurant, surf the best waves during the day and watch the dolphins use the supertubes as their playground, visit the local shops and board factories, and have dinner in the in-house sushi bar before you watch the sun set over the water.

Jeffrey's Bay Surf School Wave Surf Camp in South Africa Program

For Beginners

The experience begins when the jeep comes to pick you up at your accommodation and drives you to the main beach. This beach has small consistent waves which are perfect for beginners.

The lessons start on the beach where you begin with the safety instructions and warming up. The groups exist out of maximum eight people to secure individual attention. The whole idea is to learn surfing on a soft surfboard in a few simple steps. Most of the first time students are standing up surfing during this two hour session. The lessons are designed to be intensive and are of course about having a good time.

First, the instructor shows how to do every step correctly, then the students try them while he gives personal advice to each student and corrects where necessary.

If all the steps are practiced on the beach it is time to get in the water and put the theory into practice. The instructor goes in the water with the group to give some final adjustments.

Advanced Surf Course

Being an advanced surfer, you can choose to either improve your current skills with a few tips from the professionals or you may be more interested in just getting out and going on a surfari. Depending on the weather and surf reports, a full licensed instructor will drive you around to the best spots of that moment so good surf is guaranteed. He will take you to places in Jeffrey’s Bay, Saint Francis, where ever the waves are waiting.

Again, you are picked up and dropped off at your accommodation and the equipment is provided, if needed, so all you need to do is relax and enjoy the trip.

Included excursions

One guided excursion to a game park is included where you can see Africa's Big Five animals; lion, buffalo, elephant, rhino, and leopard. There are two places to visit:

Lombardini Game Farm

Lombardini Game Farm is situated in the Seekoei River Valley just outside Jeffrey’s Bay, only a few minutes away. Their professional tour guides take you around the park to introduce you to the wonders of African nature. More than 20 different kinds of African species are preserved in this reservation, including the White rhino, giraffe, buffalo, fish eagles, different species of Antelope among others.

Your guide will take you as close as possible to observe and photograph them. Of course safety is always remained. During the tour he gives explanation about the animals you will be spotting.

Lion Park

The second offer is Lion Park in Port Elizabeth, a forty minutes drive away from Jeffrey's Bay. Lion Park offers visitors a unique close-up game viewing experience of wild animals in their natural habitat. As the name implies Lion Park’s main attraction are the lions. Several years ago the white lion was very close to extinction. To give this species a change for survival, the park started a breeding program.

The aim of the park’s continued breeding program is to create a second gene pool to breed healthy white lions and to conserve this rare species. This means encouraging the breeding, raising the cubs to strong and healthy lions, and setting them free into nature.

There is normally the opportunity to witness feeding time and possibly you may be able to pet the little lion cubs. The cubs up to three months old are kept apart so they can grow strong to compete with the others.

Apart from its primary role as a game-viewing and lion-breeding facility, the Lion Park is also a renowned sanctuary which successfully treats and rehabilitates many sick or injured animals. The park also offers tigers, zebra’s (who run around freely), and a big amount of African birds.

Location

This surf camp will take place at Jeffrey's Bay in South Africa.

South Africa

South Africa is practically in the same time zone as Central Europe. It is an amazing destination with the legendary waves of Jeffrey's Bay to surf, wildlife parks to explore, and culture and traditions older than time to experience. South Africa has diverse climatic regions, from tropical to arid deserts but can offer top surf trips.

The 3000 kilometers of coastline at the bottom of the African continent boast beautiful beaches and bays of consistent waves from Durban to Cape Town. The surf season in South Africa is long and surfing is a way of life over there.

The locals are friendly and welcoming and you can surf quality waves over reefs, points and beachbreaks almost all year around. The Indian Ocean meets the Atlantic Ocean at the Cape of Good Hope throwing consistent swells and amazing waves up the South African coastline offering a popular surfing destination for all kinds of surfers.

Jeffrey's Bay

Jeffrey's Bay is the most famous and said to be one of the best right-handers on the planet. It works best in July and August when there are usually back-to-back swells with a good period to help join up the sections at the east-facing spot of Jeffrey's Bay. Jeffrey’s Bay is world-renowned for its many different surf breaks.

Surf breaks

  • Kitchen Windows

Near Main Beach, Kitchen Windows is an excellent place to learn how to ride waves. It is a peak that breaks left and right.

  • Magna Tubes

Here you will find fast powerful and classic waves, as good as anywhere else.

  • Boneyards

Boneyards is right next to Supers. You will be able to recognize it with ease, as it is the spot where the waves are breaking almost perfectly, but there are only one or two guys sitting out there. Don’t be fooled; this is a locals-only break, and they take it as a serious offence if you as an outsider decide to surf there. It may have the better wave, but that is the bonus of being a local at Jeffrey's Bay for quite some period of time.

  • Supertubes

The waves here can get large (up to about 10 to 12 feet). This is the ultimate test of your surfing ability. It is very fast, powerful, and very long and as the name suggests, getting tubed is the name of the game. It os suited only to people experienced in surfing.

  • Salad bowls

These waves are short and hollow. The water is quite shallow so this place is reserved for experienced surfers.

  • Tubes

This is a short, perfect hollow wave. Once you master tubes, you can surf Supertubes.

  • Point

The Point is 100 percent enjoyable with cutback sections and everything else you could possibly want from a wave. The waves here tend to be a little smaller than those at Boneyards and Supers. The difference is that you will have a much longer ride here than at the other two.

  • Albatross

Located near Kabeljous Caravan Park, this is a wave in the same class as Point and mostly uncrowded.
