St Lucia Adventures and Things to Do.

St Lucia town is a great little gem on the North Coast of KwaZulu-Natal.  To me it always feel like I am on an island in the Indian ocean when I visit the town.  St Lucia has an awesome list of outdoor adventure activities to choose from. 

Adventures take place in the ocean, estuary and coastal forest all minutes from the town centre.  The town of St Lucia is at the mouth of the St Lucia Estuary, part of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, a UNESCO world heritage site.

St Lucia wetland park includes South Africa’s largest wetland system and awesome coastal dunes, the home of a great variety of wildlife.  Regarding scuba diving here, you will find some of the most southerly coral reefs in the world.  Other activities including wildlife are horse safaris, turtle tours, walking safaris and the famous hippo boat tours.

The estuary is an awesome place to go paddling to check out the animals and birds, snorkel in the crystal clear rock pools, take a guided walk on the beach to watch nesting turtles at night, or to go on a long hike or horse ride through the game-filled grasslands or deep sea fishing.

All in all St Lucia is a great destination for outdoor adventure activities with a real Africa feel to them.

Boat Charters

Deep Sea Fishing

The Mozambique Current is where the big fish live, and you can get out there and pit your skills against them on a fishing charter trip from St Lucia in northern KwaZulu-Natal. Please just remember that big fish are top predators, and permanently removing top predators from an ecosystem can cause serious...

Horse Safaris

Guided horseback safaris in the game-rich iSimangaliso Wetland Park offer a fabulous opportunity to get up close to a range of different wild animals. These guided horse trails are one of the highlights of a game-viewing trip to Maputaland in northern KwaZulu-Natal. The horses are habituated to game,...

Turtle Tracking

Maputaland, in northern KwaZulu-Natal is prime turtle country. And you can join a guided turtle watching tour in the iSimangaliso Wetland Park most nights between November and March. It’s an exciting walk along the beach in the dark until you come across a nesting turtle, or hatching baby turtles....

Whale Watching

Unlike the better known boat-based whale watching (SABBWWA) further south, whale watching boat trips from St Lucia are mostly focussed on humpback whales, not southern right whales. Of course, you’re also likely to see loads of dolphins and sea birds. Make sure you do a whale watching trip with...
