Welcome to iSimangaliso

Makakatana Bay Lodge is a short drive from either Durban (2.5 hours) or Richard’s Bay (1 hour). After you’ve settled into your room, our experienced guides can take you on an afternoon game drive before enjoying a delicious dinner and an evening under the African stars.

Cruise on Lake St. Lucia

Our cruise along the narrows of Lake St. Lucia is a firm favourite, allowing our guests to experience the wildlife from a totally new perspective. Watch the resident hippo perform, set your binoculars on the reed birds, and enjoy the gentle breeze as you learn about the lake from our expert guides.

Beach and Bush

Dip your feet in the warm Indian Ocean at one of the most pristine coastlines in South Africa. Our beach safari includes a game drive from the western shores through to the eastern shores, allowing you to explore this amazing World Heritage Site. Where else could you spot a breaching whale, a pod of dolphins, rhino and buffalo on one trip?

Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve

The early bird catches the worm. We depart at the crack of dawn, and head to the famous Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Big Five game reserve, 75 minutes away.
