About Us

St. Lucia is officially a no-risk malaria area & is a 2½ hours drive north of Durban on the N2 toll road.

From Gauteng drive via Ermelo, Piet Retief and Pongola (6½ hours).
St. Lucia is ideal for a stopover as visitors driving between Kruger National Park & Kwa-Zulu Natal or for those starting their journey in Cape Town and driving northwards to the Kruger Park.

St. Lucia is known as the gateway to the Greater St. Lucia Wetland Park, and therefore is ideally positioned as an accommodation base for further exploration. 

Cape Vidal , one of the best snorkeling and spear fishing venues on the coast, is 32 Km north of St Lucia. Access is through the Isimangaliso wetland park, a nature reserve containing 4 of the Big 5, the Lion being absent for the safety of beach users.

The world renowned Hluhluwe/ Umfolozi game reserve is a mere 30 minutes drive away - close enough for a day trip. Details of self-drive tours is available from our reception.

Richards Bay is the nearest airport offering scheduled flights and the nearby 121 battalion 1.5Km concrete landing strip is available for private flights.
