About Us

Perfectly located in the picturesque iSimangaliso Wetland Park, we don't just offer you a home away from home but we offer you a luxurious break from reality. With the beach in close proximity, you'll have the chance to relax on the golden sand as you listen to the waves crashing around you. Enjoy memorable safari adventures with your whole family or simply relax in the glistening waters of our swimming pool - your options are endless.

Situated in the hub of this World Heritage site, we are central to incredible restaurants and exciting adventures for you to go on. We have a 24-hour convenience store and petrol station right across the road - your comfort and convenience is our priority.

St Lucia is situated on the North East of Zululand, only 2.5 hours from Durban, KwaZulu Natal. You'll fall in love with the year-round tropical warm climate while cooling off in the enticing, warm Indian Ocean. Experience the abundance of wildlife as you venture out - exploring all St Lucia has to offer. We provide you with a cosy lap of luxury while you take on every adventure out there.

Tours and Excursions

Don't miss the opportunity to book tours and excursions with iLanga Lodge. We have a variety of unbelievable, unforgettable excursions and adventures.

You'll have the opportunity to go on a beautiful game drive at the oldest nature park in Africa. The Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Park is the only state-run park in KwaZulu-Natal where each member of the big five game animals can be found.

Bayete Zulu is another one of the most densely-populated and ecologically balanced nature parks in northern KwaZulu-Natal. Not only is there so much for you to see but it affords the opportunity to personally interact with the elephants if you book the Elephant Interaction Tour with us.

If whale watching or Turtle Tours is something you're interested in, we've got you covered (but only in season). All year-round, however, deep sea fishing or losing yourself on an Estuary Cruise is something to look forward to. On our Estuary cruise, you'll have the opportunity to take in memorable sightings of hippos and crocodiles right up-close and personal - this is a true St Lucia experience.

If you're more adventure-driven when it comes to the ocean, booking a trip to Cape Vidal - the perfect location between Lake St Lucia, has its resident wildlife and tidal delights of the Indian Ocean with loads to do. The Cape Vidal excursions allow you to go snorkelling or scuba diving, giving you the opportunity to experience the aquatic wildlife in their own home. You'll never experience anything else like it!
