After breakfast, drive to Makakatana Bay Lodge, located in iSimangaliso
iSimangaliso is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with its beauty, biological richness and ecosystems. Makakatana Bay Lodge is the only privately owned safari lodge located in the iSimangaliso Wetlands. You arrive at Makakatana in time for an afternoon safari. You then drive in an open jeep along Lake St. Lucia to the Mpati estuary, which is a popular place for hippos to get to in the evening.


This day you will be traveling on a boat cruise north on a 12 mile brackish water lake. This is the place in Africa where there are most hippos. Since Makakatana is the only lodge on the lake, the boat will go in an area where you do not see other boats / people.


it's time for the Big Five safari and you are taken to the next lodge. There will be safaris every morning and afternoon.

A typical day in the game reserve starts early in the morning, which is when the chance is greatest to see animals.

In the middle of the day it is often too hot for both animals and people, so it is better to stay by the swimming pool. Round. kl. At 15:00 you meet for "High Tea", a snack lunch, before you go on safari with drinks - Sun downers - as the sun sets over the savannah. You drive in an open safari car with your own safari guide and tracker, that's how you really get to experience wildlife.

Safari is in the open land rover with their own safari guide and tracker, that's how you really get to feel Africa's wildlife. Time and place are forgotten when a flock of elephants blocks the road!


After a morning safari and breakfast, drive to Thonga Beach Lodge. In this secluded bay with its elongated beach and crystal clear waters, Thonga Beach Lodge is surrounded by unspoilt nature. To preserve nature and the dunes, which are on UNESCO's World Heritage list, it took seven years to build Thonga.

Thonga offers a variety of activities. In the period from November to February, the large sea turtles come to the start to lay eggs - a wonderful sight and memory for life!

Thonga Beach is also a lovely place to snorkel or dive for colorful fish, squid and much more.


It's time to go home after a relaxing breakfast and maybe a morning bath.

You will be picked up at the lodge and returned to Durban Airport in time for your return trip.

Thank you for that time!
