We offer self-catering holiday accommodation, affordable budget & standard garden units in Zululand, South Africa for couples, single travellers, families, birders, eco-tourists, "mature" backpackers and nature enthusiasts. Our vacation units are neat, clean in a garden setting on the embankment of the St Lucia Estuary away from the town noise.
St Lucia town is uniquely situated surrounded by a World Heritage Site, the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, an ideal base to explore and experience our unspoilt natural heritage.
We have the only significant major swamp forest in SA, 25 000 year old vegetated costal dunes, 3 major lake systems ( Lake Sibaya, - St Lucia and Kosi Bay), all 5 south african mangrove tree species, 36 species of snake, 80 species of dragonflies, 110 species of Butterflies and more than 2000 species of flowering plants.
See the Big 5 (Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Buffalo and Rhino) as well as the other 5 (Hippo, Crocodile, Fish Eagle, Leatherback and Loggerhead Sea Turtles and Humpback Whales) while you relax in the warm humid summer tropical climate.
Watch the sun set rise over the sea and set over the lake the same day, be awaked by sound of the Trumpeter Hornbill sad song, feel the sun burn your skin and breathe in the clean warm air of one of the oldest and most diverse reserves in the world.
The park stretches 220 km along the northern coastline of Kwa-Zulu Natal, against the warm Indian Ocean. This area boasts:
St Lucia Wilds Flatlet has been named a 2018 Best Value Establishment on Afristay.
St Lucia was definitely one of the special highlights of our 3 week holiday and our stay with you in the self catering unit was much more than we had anticipated. We appreciated the book that you generously lent us on the Parks, Umfolozi/Hluhluwe and the information you shared with us about Cape Vidal and other places of interest.
On our trip to Cape Vidal we spotted what we thought was a buffalo right next to the tarred road and stopped for a photo. On closer inspection the "buffalo" turned out to be a rhino with its horn hidden in the long grass as it was grazing!
This was an amazing experience as it was our first sighting of a rhino in the wild . Thanks again for all your kind hospitality - we hope that you enjoyed the run you were training for. All the very best to you and your family.
With God's blessings and warm regards from Margie Weir and Ian Cairns May 2012
