Looking for Accommodation why not overnight in St Lucia a World Heritage site and only a mere 54km from the Hluhluwe Umfolozi Game Reserve.
St Lucia was proclaimed as South Africa’s first World Heritage Site in 1999 by Unesco and with it’s incredible beauty and wildlife it really makes sense to overnight in St Lucia. One of the few remaining areas where wildlife still roam the streets at night, one will not be surprised when witnessing a Hippo or two walking down the residential areas in search of fresh grazing or better yet a sight of the elusive Leopard. Yes St Lucia is wild and magnificent it’s a wildlife paradise and has fast become a top tourist attraction.
With a limited residential area the town has a permanent compliment of approximately 500 residents. However quickly outnumbered by the wildlife with estimated number’s of 800 Hippo’s and 1200 Nile crocodiles one can see the attraction.
St Lucia South Africa Accommodation offers one a various amount of styles and star grading from budget hostels to 5 star rated lodges. Each and every type of accommodation may be found within St Lucia however due to its popularity one needs to make bookings well in advance to avoid disappointment. Not only may one experience wildlife on the doorsteps of ones accommodation but why not travel through to iSimanagliso Wetland Park an incredible area with 5 various eco systems, swim in tropical waters at Cape Vidal and witness Humpback Whales breaching or see first hand Logger head and Leatherback turtles laying their eggs on the beach.
Each St Lucia Accommodation provider will provide you with a map and list of the local attraction’s, however our recommendation by far has to be the Hippo & Croc Boat Safaris that run daily as one go’s in search of the local delights.
