Looking for cool things to do in South Africa?
Whenever you find yourself driving through the valley of a thousand hills near Durban, you’re coming from the Drakensberg mountains or you’re taking on an unbeaten path adventure to Swaziland, keep in mind there is a beautiful place called St Lucia tucked in underneath the South African border under Mozambique. Here’s a travel guide with some short guidelines and tips about this UNESCO Heritage area of natural beauty.
The village of St Lucia is a good base from which you can explore the iSimangaliso Wetland Park. This wildlife and nature reserve is a gigantic protected region along the South-African coast, almost right up against Mozambique and Swaziland. The village of St Lucia can be found at the mouth of a river that comes from a giant center lake (with the name of lake St Lucia). This lake is located right in the middle of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park and it’s home to many hippos, crocodiles, pelicans, and flamingos.
