Travel Information


We experience beautiful sunny skies throughout the year. Summer temperatures are hot and humid, ranging between 20 degrees at night and up to 40 degrees during the day.Our winter temperatures are mild, ranging between 14 degrees during the night and up to 24 and even 28 degrees during the day.

Safety and Security

With one access point across a crocodile infested lake and with hippo and leopard patrols during the night, St Lucia is just about crime free.  There is further a 24 hour security patrol by Homo sapiens.  Do not go close to the bushy areas at night, because you might meet a hippo or leopard.  Always remember that we are in the animals’ territory and respect it.
