South Africa Suggested Itinerary - Day Tours in Hluhluwe & St Lucia include safaris, Turtle Tours, boat cruises, cultural villages and more in Kwa-Zulu Natal's Zululand Kingdom.

Zululand in Kwazulu-Natal is home to spectacular scenery and interesting cultural history. Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve with its 'Big 5' is one of the major drawcards to this area. Greater St Lucia Wetland Park, a world heritage site, is made up of Lake St Lucia and the Eastern Shores Game Reserve which, together with the Indian Ocean, play host to a wide range of animal and bird life. We have a number of day tours available to help you explore this diverse area.

The following are scheduled day tours departing from St Lucia and/or Hluhluwe but we can customize your own tour to match your requirements (please note that we only book day tours when accommodation is booked with us too).

St Lucia Turtle Tours
Turtle Tour in St LuciaDeparts from St Lucia at 5.30pm (only between November and March) and is approximately 6 - 7 hours
In all likelihood, it’s once in a lifetime, so don’t even consider missing it. As the evening begins to fall, we set out on a quiet night drive on the beach to seek out, but never disturb, the leatherback and loggerhead turtles returning to their birthplace to lay their eggs; later in the season, we’re able to see the hatchlings making their desperate and dangerous dash for the ocean. Our evening expedition includes a night drive through the Eastern Shores Game Reserve, on to the beach, and – if all possible – a stealthy walk on the sand. We’ve packed our own refreshments and snacks, so it promises to be as convivial an evening as it’s likely to be thrilling.

St Lucia Boat Cruise
St Lucia Tour
Departs from St Lucia and is approximately 2 hours
Enjoy a two hour relaxed interpretive cruise on the St Lucia Estuary aboard the Santa Lucia, a spacious double-decker boat offering great vantages to view hippos and crocodiles as well as excellent bird life. The boat has a coffee & snack bar and a full bar on board (includes transport).
