"The Wilds" as we are locally known, offers fully equipped self-catering holiday accommodation. We offer 3 joint ground floor cottage type units and 1 affordable (budget) flatlet. The town is uniquely located within a World Heritage Site, the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, and so surrounded by nature and wildlife. Our cottages are set in a natural tranquil garden on the St Lucia lakeside. Situated in the main street away from the noisy town centre but within walking distance of shops and restaurants. A good base to travel from to nearby parks.
You are invited to stay in our individually furnished, standard, well equipped, homely, clean units. We are suited to accommodate overnight travellers, families with children, self-drive visitors, those who prefer to cook self and especially nature enthusiasts and those prefer the road less travelled.
All units have access to the garden area on the lakeside via a communal path through the premises to the swimming pool too. The cottages have no view of the lake but an own garden area separated by plants.
Come and enjoy the big garden area while watching the many birds, or just relax on a lounge chair under a tree in the cool breeze, drink a "sundowner" while you watch the sunset over the lake or cool down in the swimming pool.
Wildlife visits the garden like Tree Squirrels, Banded Mongoose, an abundance of birds, insects, butterflies, small reptilians, small bucks monkeys and at night Thick-tailed Bushbabies and sometimes hippo grazing the grass.
St Lucia Wilds is privately owned and managed. This establishment is in operation since 1987. The owners live on-site and are always ready to give information and share their passion for the environment and nature. This area provides beach and bush experiences. We see the sunrise over the sea and set over the lake.
We offer Self – Catering accommodation only, no meals.
3 Conjoined ground level cottage apartment units and 1 Flatlet with 6 steps to the only door. Building style and set up is dated with new equipment and old used together. The buildings and all areas are kept and maintained continuously. Each cottage and the flatlet have a garden area for own use with a braai (BBQ) facility and plastic garden furniture, separated by plants.
On-site, for all guests to use, is an all-year outdoor swimming pool, a garden area on the lakeside and a covered paved area at the pool. There are a few pool loungers and tables and chairs.
