South Africa’s busiest holiday season is around the corner and visitors from near and far are revving their engines for the Great Trek eastwards, ready to explore the wonders of the country’s most diverse bush and beach destination – the iSimangaliso Wetland Park World Heritage Site. With 332 000ha of marine and terrestrial interlinking eco-systems, the Park offers a bit of magic for all.
As always, we suggest the following guidelines and remind you of pertinent rules to ensure you have a happy and safe visit:
Jet skis, ski boats and paddle skis are permitted to launch from official public sites at Maphelane, St Lucia, Cape Vidal and Sodwana Bay – please check the daily limits and conditions of use with Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife’s marine office.
There are no shark nets and beaches are unprotected, so swimmers are cautioned to be careful to avoid deep swimming, rough conditions and fast moving rip tides.
Please adhere to Park rules about no alcohol in public areas. Routine checks will be undertaken for the safety and enjoyment of our visitors.
Any emergency or negative incidents should be immediately reported to the 24-hour iSimangaliso Emergency line 082 797 7944.
