About Fat Fish B&B

Bushmans River Mouth is unquestionably the best kept secret in South Africa, offering a safe and secure environment away from the hustle and bustle of frenetic city life. On the R72 coastal trunk road between Port Elizabeth and East London and directly across the river from Kenton-on-Sea, Fat Fish B&B is situated at the very end of tranquil Umthati Street. Flanked by natural bush on one side there is bird life in abundance, and recently introduced game, to be enjoyed.  

You can rely on the nightjars to lull you to sleep or perhaps a visit from the Cape Eagle Owl who regularly arrives on the roof and announces his presence.  In the morning the guinea fowls and francolins audibly welcome the new dawn.  The beautiful Bushmans River, which is the second longest tidal river in South Africa (30kms), is a mere amble down the road and is a huge attraction for boating enthusiasts, or perhaps you prefer swimming, sunbathing, rowing, or skiing while fishermen have the choice of river or surf fishing.

Why not embark on a long walk along the unspoilt and safe beach to Kwaaihoek point. If you are lucky you may spot the odd school of dolphins or even Humpbacks or Southern Right whales which make their appearance between August and November each year.
