KwaZulu Natal Beach Holiday

6 days from £2350pp plus international flights.

A real gem of a holiday in South Africa. A luxury 12-suite lodge on a perfect beach in the iSimangaliso will be your home.

  • 5 nights in a luxury beach lodge on the Indian Ocean.
  • Miles of stunning wild beach backed by dunes.
  • 24 thatched suites with private balconies, in the dune forest.
  • Snorkelling, diving, boating, walking ...
  • Seasonal turtle tracking.

This is a real gem - your chance to spend time in a luxury lodge on a pristine, unspoilt white sand beach on the KwaZulu Natal coast in iSimangaliso Wetland Park.

This is a stunningly beautiful setting, with the beach backed by dense dune forests and grasslands, and your photos will inspire admiration and maybe a tinge of envy! Thonga Beach Lodge combines the rustic charm of thatch and wood with mod cons like air conditioning. Your suite is on stilts and as you sit on the balcony you can enjoy fine views over the lush forest.

Your main decision each day as you enjoy a delicious breakfast, will be how to spend your time. You can be as idle or active as you wish. Spend a day lazing on the private beach or sunbathing on the deck, punctuated with refreshing swims in the sea or pool and maybe a visit to the spa. On another day you can take go kayaking on Lake Sibaya and take strolls along the deserted lake shore, or take the motor-launch out into the ocean and swim with dolphins. On dry land you can follow a guide through the forests and dunes, bird watching as you go and you will have the chance to visit a Tsonga homestead and spend time with local people.

You will enjoy fine food eaten al fresco on the large deck, though look out for the cheeky monkeys who also appreciate the fare and may try and steal some! Savour sundowners in the upstairs lounge, chatting and swapping stories with other guests. The staff are charming and will look after you well. This is your chance to holiday in tranquil, remote coastline - a small piece of paradise!
