Wildlife & Activities
In addition to twice-daily vehicle based game drives with
highly knowledgeable &Beyond rangers and trackers, guests

to the Maputaland coastline means that guests can also enjoy
beach activities such as snorkelling and scuba diving, deep-sea
fishing and beach picnics. The 'Flight of the Fish Eagle' offers
guests a birds-eye view of the pristine Maputaland coastline
and some of the highest forested sand dunes in the world, as
well as the famed iSimangaliso Wetland Park (formerly known

the reserve around the nearby Saint Lucia lake can also be arranged
and paid for locally.
