Time permitting – Take one of the 3 recommended sunset boat cruises. – Embark on a boat tour
through the St Lucia Estuary, getting (safely) up-close and personal with our 800 hippos and 1200
crocodiles, as well as impressive birds like the Goliath Heron, the Great White Egret, and the WoolyNecked Stork. The light is perfect for photos and the Hippos are a lot more active in the late
afternoon, yarning and making their distinctive territorial call.
18:30 - Head out to one of our many casual-dining restaurants for dinner in town and return to St
Lucia Wetlands for a nightcap and/or complimentary sherry, fruit, and sweets before retiring to bed
08:00 - Enjoy a full English breakfast on the serene balcony. Trumpeter Hornbills and Vervet
Monkeys are frequent visitors to the surrounding trees and are an unfailing delight to our guests.
09:00 - Depart for iSimangaliso Wetland Park, South Africa’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to diverse African wildlife. We provide you with a cooler box and snorkelling equipment. Selfdrive through the park to Cape Vidal for a picnic lunch with visits to the park’s various detours off the tar road, viewpoints, Catalina Bay, and Mission Rocks. Boasting 5 ecosystems and a stunning beach with coral reefs perfectly suited for snorkelling, it’s best to grant this expedition a full day. However if you were unable to do the boat cruise the previous afternoon today will be your chance. Should you arrive back in St Lucia before it gets dark. We recommend walking along the board walk to the beach. There you can see Hippos wallowing in the lake, depending on the season flamingos and pelicans can also be spotted from the water’s edge.
