If you’re looking for a beach and bush escape, the small town of St Lucia in northern KwaZulu-Natal is the perfect base. Set in a lush tropical garden in the Village of St Lucia, Lodge Afrique combines luxury with paradise offering 8 luxurious air-conditioned suites, each with a full Afro-Victorian bathroom as well as an outdoor African shower which leads off your private patio.
Lodge Afrique is the ideal base from which to explore South Africa’s first World Heritage Site, the surrounding Isimangiliso Wetland Park - South Africa’s top nature destination for eco-tourists. St Lucia Estuary is the only town in the world that is completely surrounded by this World Heritage Site – the iSimangaliso Wetland Park. On the West & South, it is bordered by the Estuary itself, home to about 800 hippos & 1200 crocodiles.
On the East side, the town is bordered by the warm Indian Ocean, and on the North the Eastern Shores section of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park. With its beautiful lakes, lagoons, freshwater swamps and grasslands, the ISimangalsio Wetland Park supports more species of animals and birds than many of the better known parks and deltas in Southern Africa.
Whilst enjoying a full Continental and English breakfast at the main Lodge open air patio, guests can soak up the early morning vibrancy of the different bird species.
Each suite is equipped with Satellite TV & free Wi-Fi is available 24 hours a day. The room has a patio with private outside shower, full en-suite bathroom, air conditioner and ceiling fan, tea and coffee trays, hairdryer, wall safe & bar fridges.
