St Lucia Safari Lodge offers superior safari accommodation at a price you can afford.
We have fifteen comfortably appointed self-catering holiday chalets; comprising twelve four-sleeper units and three six-sleeper units. Service is provided daily. Our chalets are equipped with hairdryers and have access to national television channels (DStv Business package per unit).
The Lodge also boasts 9 Bed and Breakfast Rooms equipped with Bar Fridge, hair Dryers, complimentary Toiletries, bath towels, TV, and much more.
One big thing about an African adventure holiday is getting away from technology, such as SmartPhones and laptops. But, for city slickers who need to stay connected, St Lucia Safari Lodge offers free Wi-Fi Internet access.
If you don't feel like cooking - or having a traditional South African braai (barbecue) at the Lodge's braai facilities - we offer breakfasts every morning in our lapa next to the pool where you can watch some African Wildlife Videos while enjoying a full English Breakfast.
Dinner is prepared for larger groups on request. Or pop into town and try one of the restaurants or cafes nearby.
St Lucia offers the demanding traveller many opportunities for action and adventure - from hikes through the bushveld and horse riding to spearfishing and diving.

St Lucia Estuary:
The St Lucia Estuary is a body of water 85 km in length - the largest estuarine system in Africa. The Estuary is an important breeding ground for bird species, and birdwatchers will be delighted to discover close on one hundred species, from the African Fish Eagle, several species of stork and pelicans to kingfishers and the Lesser Flamingo. Get up close and personal with St Lucia birdlife - as well as the more intimidating Nile Crocodiles and Hippos - on an Estuary Cruise.
St Lucia Game Reserves:
Zululand is big game country, with several world-renowned game parks and nature reserves. If it's an African safari you're after, you've come to the right place!
Isimangaliso Wetland Park:
Formerly known as the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park, the Isimangaliso Wetland Park covers an astonishing 239 000 hectares, from St Lucia Town right up to the Mozambique border. And that's only the land portion - the Isimangaliso Wetland Park also comprises an additional 80 000 plus hectares into the ocean, protecting marine wildlife and plants, as well as those found on land.
Mangrove, dune, swamp and coastal forests are all found within the land area of this massive park, as well as characteristically (difficult word, can you replace with something else) African savannah grasslands and thornybush thickets. Under the sea, dramatic seascapes, including canyons and coral reefs make this area a premier destination for snorkelling and diving.
Diverse flora and fauna and splendid natural beauty have made the Isimangaliso Wetland Park a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Hhluhlwe-iMfolozi Game Reserve:
Within this greater protected area known as Isimangaliso are the game reserves of Hhluhlwe and iMfolozi, collectively referred to as Hhluhlwe-iMfolozi. It's the oldest proclaimed park in Africa and boasts all of Africa's Big Five - lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and elephant. During the 1950s and 1960s, Hhuhlwe was the focal point of Dr Ian Player's Operation Rhino - a conservation effort aimed at bringing back white and black rhino populations from the brink of extinction. The fight against rhino poaching continues to today, and is a cause to which eco-tourists can make a valuable contribution. It remains an enormous privilege to see these enormous beasts alive and well in the African wild.
North of St Lucia is Cape Vidal - a scenic sheltered bay which offers access to both the Indian Ocean and the eastern shore of Lake St Lucia. Cape Vidal offers a dream beach holiday and African safari in one - game viewing, sunbathing, swimming, angling and snorkelling; you can do it all at Cape Vidal, including treasure-hunting for the Kruger millions, rumoured to be have been aboard the Dorothea, a ship which ran aground here in 1898 but whose wreckage has not yet been found
