St Lucia – KZN’s Hidden Gem

Wanna get up close and personal with a Hippo, or perhaps a Crocodile?

Then head off to one of the Finest Wetlands in Africa - St Lucia: on the KZN North Coast.

In the Estuary you will see Herds of Hippo basking and lazing around without a care in the world! Crocodiles and their hatchling are also found here. More interesting Facts can be seen and heard of at the Crocodile Centre.

St Lucia is a piece of heaven just a stone’s throw away from the hustle and bustle of Durban, offering its visitors a strong sense of Harmony and Tranquillity.

Pristine Beaches, Walking Trails through the forest, Five Species of Turtles that return each year to lay their eggs, Wondrous Coral Reefs and hundreds of Bird Species are just a few of the Incredible Experiences that St Lucia has to offer.

Lake St Lucia is the largest Estuarine System in South Africa, and a nursery for many of the 1200 species of Fish which occur in the adjacent ocean.
