Lidiko Lodge St. Lucia

Lidiko Lodge is a family owned, intimate, 4 STAR lodge centrally situated in the village of St Lucia, Zululand, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa, surrounded by the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, an UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Set above the Great St Lucia Lake, on a coastal dune, accommodation in the well-appointed 18 garden lodges is provided on a bed & breakfast basis.

The park-like gardens and outdoor lounge of the lodge are ideal for bird watching, conversation, or enjoying quiet time. The pool is ideal to cool off or do some sun-soaking on the loungers around the pool.

The main building of the lodge is one of the first buildings that was erected in St Lucia and with its thatch, oozes an Old World Zululand charm.  The main building houses the reception area, guest lounge, a small library for guests, as well as the dining deck with views of the bird and often monkey and mongoose-filled gardens.  The main building leads to the tropical pool area and the rooms.

Lidiko Lodge is centrally situated in St Lucia and within 5 minutes walking distance from all the restaurants, craft markets, walking trails, and main attractions. Lidiko Lodge is the ideal venue to visit the surrounding wetlands, big 5 game parks as well as pristine beaches.  It is a safe haven for joggers, cyclists, and walkers.  It is also the only known village with hippos roaming the streets at night.

Guest Reviews

  • Excellent service and friendly staff

    We enjoyed every moment of our stay. Topical garden with pool and deckchairs, Very good sleeping quality in lovely units, and great breakfast. We got a cooling box and beach towels for our day out at Cape Vidal which we very much appreciated.

  • Service and staff were top-notch

    Everything was amazing!! The room was great, spacious, and clean. A wonderful bathroom with a nice hot shower and a big sink counter. Service and staff were top-notch. Everyone was so nice and they left me hanging out in the lounge after I checked out while waiting for my friend to arrive.


Relax Pool-side

surrounded by lush greenery, it's the best place to be on a hot Zululand day.
