Lake St Lucia and the many other lakes of the Elephant Coast, including Lake Sibaya and Kosi Lake, dominate the inland ecosystem and their importance and uniqueness, in combination with the coastline, has been recognised in the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The lake waters are home to hippos and crocodiles whilst the forested shores resound to the cries of various monkey species and the timid twitching of tiny antelopes, like the Red Duiker. Ancient fishing techniques, dating back 700 years and still in use can be observed on the lake waters. Whether you’re exploring the narrow backwaters by canoe, taking a larger boat out into the lakes to do some game viewing and bird watching, or going on a coastal forest game drive or bush walk, you shouldn’t miss the chance to experience and understand one of South Africa’s lesser-known but hugely impressive wildlife and conservation areas.
