Unforgettable experiences for the whole family

iSimangaliso Wetland Park is a huge protected area along the coast of South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal Province. The park’s centrepiece is the vast Lake St. Lucia, home to large numbers of hippos, crocodiles, pelicans and flamingos.

  • My wife and I visited Mkuze, Cape Vidal and Dukuduku last week as part of our "birding trip". We were highly impressed with the friendly staff at the gates, the nice picnic areas, clean toilets and above all, the magnificent parks. The whole area is fantastic to visit and highly recommended for keen birders.

  • This was a lovely relaxed drive through the park up to Cape Vidal. Several lovely view sites. We saw a good variety of animals and birds . Well worth a visit.

  • Very efficient and friendly team from booking to the day of the activities. Had a great time with our two skipper; one for the game drive and the other one for the hippo and boat cruise. Both skippers were friendly and knowledgeable; fun activities do whether as a couple or with family and kids or big groups.
