Travelling to St Lucia South Africa

St Lucia South Africa previously a fishing village unknown to the rest of the world now a hot spot for not just wildlife but adventure tourism.

St Lucia South Africa received world heritage status in 1999 from Unesco and for various valid reasons. However the beauty of the area speaks for itself. With 5 ecosystems within the park, and a mere 54 km to Hluhluwe Umfolozi Game reserve the oldest park in Africa this trully is paradise. St Lucia has come a long way since 1999 it now boasts an amazing amount of Accommodations, tour operators and restaurants.

However this would be the pitch from many a town trying to get you to stay in their area while travelling to South Africa or better yet anywhere abroad. St Lucia however is trully different, a park within a park so to say, the area or town offers you a lot to do for free, guided walks into the forests or guided walks into Isimangaliso Wetlands Park. On the walks one may encounter Buffalo, Zebra, Antelope and Leopard not to mention the wide variety of bird species found in the area.

Lots of beach to take walks on bearing in mind that this is also the Indian Ocean and hence warm tropical water year round. From June each year one can experience Whale Watching both from the beach as well as boat based tour operators. Then from November each year one can see Logger head and Leatherback laying their eggs of St Lucia ( Isimangaliso Wetlands Park) this continues through to March with the hatchlings.

Horse back riding both in the bush or beach rides are also available, Cape Vidal snorkeling trips these offer clients a chance to see first hand tropical fish and game fish in the bay. Deep sea fishing why not try your hand at some game fish the seasons depend on the type of specie found and also include Marlin in Summer.

Go on a game drive to witness the African Big 5 in the Hluhluwe Umfolozi Game reserve this the oldest park in Africa should really not be missed.Or why not go on a Night Drive to witness nocturnal animals in their environment.

St Lucia offers one a world in one, join us to discover our Heritage.
