St Lucia is an attractive village lying at the southernmost tip of iSimangaliso Wetland Park, a World Heritage Site (formerly Greater St Lucia Wetland Park). This thriving eco-destination owes its popularity to the close proximity of various attractions and things to do in the area.
Surrounded by the estuary and Indian Ocean, St Lucia is almost an island. Here you can do a boat ride to see hippos and crocs, kayak on the lake, visit the Crocodile Research Centre, or do a hike or a horse trail. Nile crocodiles sun themselves on the banks; hippo roam the streets after dark and leopard are seen occasionally. Humpback Whales migrate along the coast from June to November. Loggerhead and leather back turtles lay their eggs on the beautiful sandy beaches from November to March.
St Lucia offers a number of walking trails where small antelope, mongoose and Samango monkeys can be seen. Birdwatchers are up for an exciting experience with around 450 recorded species to tick off. Not too far off is Mkuze, one of the best birding spots in South Africa. Also a long-time hangout for keen anglers, St Lucia has a good selection of tackle and bait shops. An assortment of seafood restaurants line the banks of the estuary.
