St Lucia is the gateway to the beautiful iSimangaliso Wetlands Park, declared South Africa's first World Heritage Conservation Site in 1999. St Lucia Kingfisher Lodge is situated at the edge of town which means that whilst the shops, restaurants and other amenities are only a 10 minute walk away, the lodge's delightful gardens blend seamlessly into the surrounding Gwalagwala Forest.
The lodge has extensive shady gardens with a wide variety of trees. St Lucia Estuary can be viewed from the end of the garden and the start of the walking trail through the Gwalagwala Forest is next to the front gate. This proximity to nature means that the gardens are home to a wide variety of birds and are often visited by animals such as hippos, various antelope, bush babies and very occasionally leopards. A small swimming pool is available for the exclusive use of guests. Guests are welcome to relax either on sun loungers in the garden, under a poolside shaded area or in the comfortable lounge in the main house.
Check in is at 14:00 Early check-ins and late check-outs available at an additional charge

The staff are very friendly. We were only going to arrive in the evening and the lady let us know how we would access our room. The location is perfect, the rooms are clean and the breakfast is delicious!

Good location to main street shopping, restaurants, beach and estuary. Nice breakfast. Friendly staff. Comfy bed.
The service there was amazing the room was beautiful and we loved the fact that they really used the wetlands landscape to add to the atmosphere of the place. We were only able to stay one night but would definitely be back to stay longer.
