ImageBird Watching Part of the South African Birding Route, St. Lucia is very popular with serious Bird Watchers. The largest estuarine system in Africa with an area of 325 square kilometres, situated in coastal Kwazulu-Natal. The shallow waters attract large numbers of water birds. There are mud flats, reed beds, flood plains and a well-wooded shoreline. Due to the size of the lake it is not possible to get access throughout. We visit an area on the western shore where there is a superb lodge overlooking the flood plain at False Bay.
If you enjoy relaxing on the sand or going for walks along the beach you wont be disappointed in St. Lucia. With its lakes, lagoons, freshwater swamps and grasslands, St. Lucia supports more species of animal than the better known parks and deltas in Southern Africa.
