Day 1: Leave Durban to travel north into Zululand. After a 2.5 hour drive we check in to your accommodation, a 4-star B and B centrally situated in St Lucia village making it easy to wander around and explore all the sights and sounds. In the afternoon we take a boat cruise on the lake where we will introduce you to some of the 2000 crocodiles and 800 hippos that live in this amazing World Heritage site. Dinner is for your own account at one of the local restaurants.
Day 2: After breakfast head into the Wetland Park for a full day tour of the area with a fully qualified and experienced nature guide. Enjoy unusual scenery and a host of wildlife and bird species. Visitors will be taken to various viewpoints to see the lake system, as well as enjoy a spot of bird viewing and hippo or crocodile sightings. Cape Vidal and Mission Rocks will also be visited during the tour. At low tide these stunning parts of the coastline, with rock pools full of sea-life, are great for exploring and snorkeling (sea-conditions permitting) as well as some beach or relaxation time.
Day 3: Today is your optional day. Your guide can take you on a guided walk / cycle tour to explore the area. Or you could spend the day relaxing, shopping, or on one of the many optional activities available, not included in the package price (see below for some ideas). In the evening there is included a night drive safari in the Wetland Park. This 3-hour trip gives you the opportunity to see the more nocturnal animals under the stars.
Day 4: Depart after breakfast for Durban.
