St Lucia is mainly a hub for the iSimangaliso Wetlands Park. A very special slice of Africa, iSimangaliso (a World Heritage Site) offers visitors some of the most diverse wildlife and outdoor experiences imaginable.
This unique, 38 000 ha expanse of lake, islands and estuary, incorporates an astonishing variety of habitats ranging from the Lebombo mountains to grasslands, forests, wetlands, mangroves and vegetated dunes, with magnificent beaches and coral reefs.
This diversity gives rise to a multiplicity of fauna and flora. Birdlife is prolific and includes flamingos, pelicans, herons, terns, ducks, geese and storks – as well as many other rare and spectacular species.
Swimming in the lake is prohibited due to the presence of crocodile however, you can dive on coral reefs, walk for miles on golden beaches, explore great dunes, wander through magical coastal forests, or roam across grassy plains.
Try your hand at canoeing while enjoying a wilderness trail, and if snorkeling, angling or boating take your fancy, this is the place to indulge yourself.
