Worst place i stayed at”

Worst value for money i ever spent. Shonalanga's website is very misleading. False advertising. 1. Rooms were not ready on arrival 2. No air-conditioner 3. Ceiling fans were not the safest 4. The rooms had a very dusty smell 5. Bed Linen needs replacing. They looked brownish/ yellowish/dirty 6. Pots & Pans were rusty 7. Cutlery was rusty & broken 8. TV reception was poor 9. Taps were not secured in the bathroom. They were loose. Water sprays out of the bathroom taps like a shower 10. Shower floor needs a good clean 11. One unit had a shower curtain which is unhygienic 12. Place is in need of urgent maintenance 13. The pool was not clean and could not be used in the evenings 14. Distribution board is a shocker. Fire waiting to happen 15. Property does not have a driveway gate. Walk in/out. Drive in/out. No security on site especially without a locked 16. entrance gate. 17. Evening receptionist/helper is in desperate need of customer training. She was arrogant and rude. Never smiles/gre

Prima gedateerde plek”

In het centrum van St Lucia, vlakbij de supermarkt ligt Shonalanga Lodge. Gedateerde kamers die in prima staat zijn, maar wel hun gebreken hebben. Bijvoorbeeld een ventilator die alleen op standje maximaal kan en een douchestraal waar alleen een mier genoegen mee zou nemen. Er zijn ruime braai gelegenheden, een zwembad (zonder ligbedden) en een WiFi spot die overigens niet in de kamer werkt. In de kamer zijn overigens een klein keukentje met koelkast aanwezig. Tip: Werk aan een spontanere ontvangst.

Lake St Lucia

shonalanga tours st lucia

Africa’s largest estuarine system sustains an awe-inspiring ecosystem

The heart of the miracle.

Lake St Lucia owns a sense of place like no other – one of the most abundant, naturally-endowed and beautiful pieces of real estate on earth. If the iSimangaliso Wetland Park is a miracle (which ‘iSimangaliso’ translates to from the Zulu) then the Lake is the heart that sustains that miracle. It is the focal point of the UNESCO World Heritage Listing and has been a Ramsar Wetland of International Importance since 1986. It is 80km long and 23km at its widest point.

shonalanga tours st lucia

Sustaining life, in abundance

Aside from the lake and dune ecosystems, the park protects a marine zone of warm tropical seas, coral reefs and endless sandy beaches; the papyrus and reed wetland of the umkhuze swamps, on the north of the lake; and, on the western shore, dry savannah and thornveld. any one of these would justify conservation, but their confluence around the lake st lucia makes this a world-class wilderness..

shonalanga tours st lucia

Bushbuck flourish around the Lake

More than 50% of all water birds in KwaZulu-Natal feed, roost and nest in this Estuary. Of the 155 fish species that have been recorded in the Lake St Lucia estuarine system, 71 species use Lake St Lucia as a nursery area – and at least 24 of these are important in marine line fisheries. More than 2 180 species of flowering plants have been documented here and it is home to many species of antelope such as waterbuck, reedbuck, kudu, nyala, impala and duiker.

St Lucia Reviews

We went to St Lucia Villa Mia 5 to recover after operation. Absolutely beautiful place. Our own private braai area right at pool. Due to my medical condition we could not go out but our hosts arranged food delivery for us from nearly all the restaurants in St Lucia. One night there was guests that were intoxicated and loud. We informed our hosts who in return got the caretaker at the property in minutes and he resolved the issue. Will definitely book again. Thanks to the workers at Villa Mia that were always willing to run and get us something we needed in town. It felt like home and we will always remember our trip. Next time we will definitely visit all the attractions that St Lucia has to offer.

Game Drives

Beautiful and peaceful, the best vacation ever! Beautiful sites to visit! Thank you!

So much to do, yet quiet and relaxed. A no-fuss but complete destination.

Peaceful and friendly people.

The peaceful and safe area, very friendly town. Unspoilt nature. Lovely restuarants.

Game reserve and Hippy trip.

Beautiful Beaches!!

Cleanliness and the game park.

I just love St Lucia, the beauty of nature, the bountiful wild life and breathtaking sunsets. It is a safe little town, where you can stroll without worrying about safety.

Limited February 2019 Special!
