St. Lucia Wilds - Self Catering Accommodation

St Lucia Wilds offer self-catering holiday accommodation 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.

The park stretches 220 km along the northern coastline of Kwa-Zulu Natal, against the warm Indian Ocean. This area boasts:

  • 1000 Nile crocodiles;
  • 8 Inter-linked ecosystems;
  • 526 bird species;
  • 800 hippos;
  • 35 species of frogs;
  • 105 species of fish.
  • Ceolocanths;
  • African Elephant;
  • Whales;
  • 100 coral species;
  • 5 species of Turtles.
  • 5 Cultural groups.

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.
