Welcome to a sub-tropical paradise! The name iSimangaliso means ‘miracle’, which aptly describes this unique place. Stretching 220 km along the East Coast, from St Lucia to the Mozambican border, the Isimangaliso Wetland Park was the first in South Africa to be elevated to the ranks of a World Heritage Site by UNESCO! One of the jewels on the South African coastline, iSimangaliso has a unique mosaic of ecosystems – stunning beaches, swamps, lakes, coral reefs, wetlands, woodlands, coastal forests and grasslands. The area supports an astounding diversity of animal, bird and marine life, making it great for game viewing, diving or snorkeling.
