St Lucia South Africa Activities - Some Ideas of what to do while in St Lucia!

1. Eat at the Ocean Basket and/or Braza Restaurant; spend some money at Voodoo Surf and Walkabout drink coffee at the St Lucia Coffee Shop.


2. Crocodile / Hippo Tour

I suggest that you do this trip as soon as possible. It is very informative and gives you a background on

St Lucia and the surrounding areas. Information available at the office.


3. Cape Vidal / Mission Rocks

Pack a picnic basket and set aside a full or at least half a day to do this trip but keep in mind, you need

sunny weather and no wind. Four of the Big 5.

Mission Rocks: From the Cape Vidal entrance gate you travel 14km where you will find the Mission

Rocks turn-off to your right. Lookout point, rock pools, ablution, BBQ and picnic area.

Cape Vidal: 32km From the entrance gate. Swimming, snorkelling, picnic and walk along the beach.

REMEMBER: Sun-block, hats and enough fluids


4. Hluhluwe / Umfolozi Game Reserve

On an overcast day the game reserve is the ideal place to visit. Don’t waste your picnic food that you

prepared to take to Cape Vidal with you, take it with you to the game reserve. Big 5.

REMEMBER: Animals hide under the trees to get away from the sun. On an overcast day they move

around and you can spot them easier.

5. Crocodile farm and Reptile Park

Take ±2 hours out of your day to walk through the park.

Croc-Feeding: Saturday @ 15:00

Wednesday @ 18:30 (summer months only)

Snake-Demo: Saturday @ 14:00

Wednesday @ 18:30 (winter months only)

Times can change: Confirm above demo times when you arrive at the croc centre.


6. Swimming at St Lucia Beach

REMEMBER: As we are situated in a Marine Reserve, our beach is not protected by shark-nets and we

have no lifesavers. At times there are extremely strong currents. Read our ocean safety guidelines...

7. Walking Trails

There are many walking trails in and around St Lucia. Info on this at the KZN Wildlife office.


8. Night drives

I would suggest a guided night drive that takes you into the Greater St Lucia Wetlands Park. Animals that

you could see: leopards, bush baby's, hyenas, genets, hippo and chameleons to mention but a few.
