St Lucia/Emdoneni Day Safari

St Lucia(Isimangaliso)/Emdoneni Day Safari

The St Lucia Wetlands (now known as Isimangaliso Wetland Park) are considered by many travelers to be the highlight of their holiday in South Africa. St Lucia is an untouched paradise, abundant in mammal, marine and bird life. Emdoneni Cheetah Lodge is the perfect place to get up close to a number of Africa’s cat species, namely the worlds fastest land mammal, the Cheetah. A perfect holiday destination, begin you St Lucia/Emdoneni safari from Durban.

We depart from Durban in the early morning taking a scenic drive through Zululand and arrive in the Hluhluwe area, where Emdoneni lodge is situated. You will be taken around the cats enclosures with a guide. Your guide will show you a number of African cat species such as, African Wild Cat, Serval, Caracal and Cheetah. The highlight of the tour is going inside an enclosure with tame hand reared Cheetah. You can touch and have your picture taken with these magnificent cats. All the cats enclosures are in a natural environment. Emdoneni pride themselves on being a part of the education and conservation of Africa’s cats. We then take a short drive and arrive at St Lucia Wetlands. St Lucia is a World Heritage site. Many international visitors consider St Lucia to be a top attraction of Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa. Once we have arrived we will make our way to the river estuary mouth, to take some photographs and gain some information of the wetlands.
