St Lucia

"We left Durban Airport at 12h00 and arrived in St.Lucia in 1910…It is the authentic Africa.” – Guest comment in our visitor’s book.

The village of St Lucia is surrounded by the Great St Lucia Lake, the warm Indian Ocean with unspoilt golden beaches and the iSimangaliso Wetland Park.  With water surrounding three sides of St Lucia and having to cross the St Lucia Lake by bridge to reach the village, the hamlet is fondly known by the locals as “The Island”. 

St Lucia is the only private village in the world that falls within the boundaries of a Natural World Heritage Site, The iSimangaliso Wetland Park. Here you can have a "bush" holiday whilst still enjoying the many facilities a small village has to offer. The town has restaurants, supermarkets, banks, fuel stations and approximately 400 permanent residents.

You can holiday right throughout the year.  In summer temperatures are around 30 degrees and in winter in the lower twenties. Because of the warm Agulhas Ocean current the Indian Ocean is warm and swimable even in winter. The ocean usually reflects the daily temperatures.
