St Lucia Wetlands: Recently renamed iSimangaliso Wetland Park, the St Lucia Estuary and Wetlands Park is a World Heritage Site, one of seven Unesco World Heritage sites in South Africa, that stretches from Kozi Bay in the north to Cape St Lucia in the south and is home to the world’s highest forested sand dunes.
St Lucia Wetlands Park St Lucia Wetlands Reserve
It incorporates the whole of Lake St Lucia, the St Lucia and Maputaland Marine Reserves, the Coastal Forest Reserve and the Kosi Bay Natural Reserve. And as if that were not enough, the 40 000 hectare Mkuzi Game Reserve is in the process of being included into the park.

One of the most beautiful places on earth, the park is incredibly diverse with a combination of subtropical coastline, classic African game park, the Ubombo Mountains, forests, mangroves, dunes beaches and coral reefs that make it totally unique.

This amount of diversity results in an equally varied assortment of animal life – from the crocodile and hippo, through the elephant, giraffe and buffalo to the Giant Leatherback turtle, whales and sharks. The wetland and other areas of the Lake St Lucia area alone support more than 530 species of bird, including flamingos, and this area has the highest diversity of amphibians in the country.

The sheer beauty of the place increasingly draws visitors from all over the world, and it is an extremely popular fishing destination. Aside from this there is boating, scuba diving, hiking, horseriding, game viewing, whale and bird watching to fill your time and you can dive from the coral reefs or walk miles on beautiful beaches.
