More info about Sodwana Bay
Part of the world heritage site of iSimangaliso Wetland Park, Sodwana Bay is a tiny town in the exquisite nature reserve, a coastal forested strip between St Lucia and Lake Sibhayi.
Sodwana Bay lies in the north eastern corner of KwaZulu Natal (KZN) Province, where the Indian Ocean’s waters are always warm and the beaches and reefs remain unscathed by industry.
Regarded as South Africa’s premier diving site, Sodwana Bay has many fascinating attractions including ancient coastal dunes and forests. Inland are salt and fresh water lakes, small villages and game parks.

Fortunately, the conservation of this area is at the forefront of local authorities’ agendas. Registered tour companies in the area... Show more
