St Lucia Boat Rides, Durban Surrounds
Enjoy the best of both worlds on this full-day tour departing from Durban to the ‘Elephant Coast.’ Ease back in the comfort of your guide-driven van as you hug the coastline on a scenic 3-hour trip, passing by Umhlanga, the Dolphin Coast, and Richards Bay before arriving in St. Lucia.
The Elephant Coast of KwaZulu-Natal is home to iSimangeliso Wetland Park (formally known as the Greater St. Lucia Wetland Park) and marks the first stop in this day-long adventure. Enjoy a historical trip down memory lane as your knowledgeable guide shares the rich history of Durban, and more specifically St. Lucia.
Untouched wetlands await as you take a guided stroll down the boardwalk from the estuary to the warm Indian Ocean, where regular sightings of hippo’s, crocodiles and abundant birdlife are a likely event.
Get up close, but hopefully not personal, with more crocs and learn more about these prehistoric animals at a crocodile farm before heading out on the day’s grand finale, a 2 hour St. Lucia boat safari.
This unforgettable boat safari sees you cruise along Africa’s largest estuarine system, passing an array of habitats from mangrove swamps to riverine forest and home to hippopotamuses, crocodiles, fish eagles, and herons.
