Itinerary

Day 1

Durban International Airport to St Lucia

Duration2 Hours

Makakatana Bay Lodge

Makakatana Bay Lodge is the only privately-owned and owner-managed game lodge within the iSimangaliso Wetland Park World Heritage Site, and is set on the banks of Lake St Lucia, one of the few natural wonders left on earth. Experience unspoiled beaches, vast wetlands, game drives around our game reserve, and an unforgettable boat cruise on the estuary. Our goal is to show off this unique and pristine wilderness gem, the perfect addition to a typical safari holiday.

The main lodge is the heart of Makakatana, a communal area with personal service designed for relaxation and comfort. All game drives leave from the main lodge, and all meals are served on either the raised deck wrapping around the lodge, or at the 'boma' alongside. The lodge has a bar, a nearby wine cellar (affectionately called the 'old crab house') and a nearby private bush pool on the edge of Lake St Lucia.
