Southern Africa Travel Guide

iSimangaliso Wetland Park (Greater St Lucia)


Country: South Africa
iSimangaliso is the Zulu word for “marvel”, a fitting description of this pristine estuary formerly known as the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park. It is home to more species than Kruger National Park. A boat trip takes you close (yet safely) into the habitat of the hippo and crocodiles that inhabit the estuary. This World Heritage site is literally a “marvel” for bird watchers. There are more than 530 recorded species found here. These include fish eagle, pelican and flamingos. As this tidal estuary consists of no less than five eco-systems, there is an enormous avian diversity.

TESTIMONIAL

Our trip was absolutely awesome. We were treated like royalty and the kids had an absolute blast. Isolated quiet and yet so many things for the kids to do and explore. We had such a great time that the kids are harassing me when we can go back, and that is one thing I will do is go back.
