Nestled between the white sandy dunes and tangled forest of the Elephant Coast, Thonga Beach lodge is an off-the-beaten-track, escapists dream. Located in one of South Africa’s first UNESCO World Heritage Sites, iSimangaliso Wetland Park, this camp offers an exclusive seaside experience that rivals those of Mauritius and other seaside resorts.
The 12 thatched suites are perched on the edge of a lush forest and some of them have views over the spectacular Indian Ocean. Wooden walkways link the main building to the exclusive white, sandy beach where you can find unspoiled corral reefs and over 1000 species of fish. This makes is one of the world’s best sites for snorkelling and scuba diving.
At certain times of year, there is the opportunity to swim with dolphins and view both leatherback and loggerhead turtles nesting. A few kilometres away, Lake Sibaya hosts plenty of crocodile and hippo.
Thonga Beach Lodge offers great option for all those looking to be a recluse for a week, including those with families in tow.
