Thonga Beach Lodge situated in the iSimangaliso World Heritage Park, is the ideal place to explore the wilderness beaches along the pristine coast of Maputaland, KwaZulu-Natal. Set above a secluded and private sandy beach, the Lodge has 12 air-conditioned suites, carefully constructed for maximum comfort and minimal environmental impact. Guests can enjoy mouth-watering cuisine, revitalizing Sea Spa treatments and romantic candlelit dinners on the beach.
Traditional Thonga villages provided the inspiration for this unique retreat that celebrates the true spirit of Mother Nature. Mabibi offers superb snorkelling opportunities. Scuba-diving is phenomenal, with reefs that are home to 1 250 fish species (Australia’s Great Barrier Reef has 1 500) located a short distance from the lodge. Guests frequently see bottlenose dolphins, game fish by the shoals and sharks in the waters near the lodge. An experienced team of diving professionals caters for all levels of scuba fans, at the lodge. Lake Sibaya, southern Africa’s largest freshwater lake, is only six kilometers from the lodge and provides an interesting 25-minute drive through the local Tsonga community. Enjoy a guided kayaking trip and glorious sundowners with hippos and crocodiles nearby.
Witness the inspiring sight of giant leatherback and loggerhead turtles emerging to lay their eggs on the unspoilt beach, in season (November to February). Having swum along the length of the African continent, these prehistoric looking creatures return to the beach where they hatched every year. Thonga Beach Lodge offers a magical beach getaway - the quintessential luxury beach escape.
