Activities in and Around St Lucia

Rich in culture and natural beauty, St Lucia has many tours and activities to choose from making it the ideal holiday destination for the whole family.

View our list of tours and excursions available...

Hippo and Croc Boat Cruise: Experience the beauty of the iSimangaliso /Greater St Lucia Wetland Park on a relaxing two hour boat cruise (three different daily departure times) along the St Lucia Estuary.

Learn about the numerous birdlife, hippo and croc to be sighted with educational talks. The boats offer ample space to walk around in and comfortable seats from which to study the beautiful scenery, while being custom built to venture into shallow waters, excellent photographic opportunities are a given.

 

Game Reserve Tours: Spot the "Big Five" - elephant, buffalo, rhino, lion and leopard - on a tour of the nearby world renowned Hluhluwe/iMfolozi Game Reserve on a full day tour or self-drive excursion.

Full day tours of the game reserve usually include lunch and cold drinks.

Whale Watching: The Season starts in June and ends November.

No experience could be more satisfying than seeing the Humpback whale playfully and acrobatically thrusting its giant body clear out of the ocean. The whale watching tour is an unforgettable, unique lifetime experience and not to be missed.

Turtle Tours: The season starts in November and ends March.

Once a year you can see one of natures many wonders unleashed when about 500 loggerhead and 150 leatherback turtles come ashore to lay their eggs. It has been perhaps 15 or 20 years since the turtle has felt solid ground beneath her half-tonne body. Her stay will be short but by the time she leaves, 120 eggs will be nestled beneath the sand for two months to recommence this fragile and miraculous cycle.

Entwined in this splendour is a tale of survival in its most brutal form. This delicate prehistoric species will hatch in its hundreds, a few will not even reach the ocean and only a handful will make it to maturity, an estimated 1 in 500 hatchlings.

The turtle nesting's have formed the basis of a healthy eco-tourism exercise in the iSimangaliso / Greater St Lucia Wetland Park every year. Nature conservation officers and tour operators take tourists during the breeding season for an experience of a lifetime.

Deep Sea Fishing & Shore Based Fishing: Enjoy a exhilarating surf launch before a full day of fishing with a qualified skipper. You can trawl for game fish, including Marlin and Sailfish or opt for some bottom fishing off one of the many localised reefs. All rods, bait, and tackle are included.

We advise guests to bring a hat, sun cream and a light windproof jacket.
