For miles of empty pristine beaches and that feeling of being marooned in paradise, you simply can’t beat Thonga Beach Lodge. The ocean safari was a definite highlight - turtles, dolphins and whales graced us with their presence. And canoeing on Lake Sibaya spotting hippos, birds and crocodiles was just as thrilling.

ABOUT Thonga Beach Lodge

PLEASE NOTE: Thonga Beach Lodge is going to be closed from 17th May to 9th June

On the pristine Maputaland coast, Thonga Beach Lodge lies in the heart of iSimangaliso World Heritage Park, a magical place with unspoilt beaches, coastal forests and shimmering lakes. Thonga captures the essence of a charming rustic Robinson Crusoe hideaway with individual air-conditioned chalets tucked away in the coastal dune forest, raised on wooden stilts to ensure minimal impact with maximum comfort.

Bleached wood, glass and natural materials create an open, airy feel, and each room has a deck, some with sea views. The Lodge exudes a relaxed and friendly ambience with good food.

Superb snorkelling within strolling distance of the Lodge in the clear warm waters of the Indian Ocean. With over 1250 fish species scuba diving is phenomenal and the dive boat launches directly from Thonga’s beach with instructors to assist divers of all levels. Experience the Ocean Safari spotting shoals of game fish, schools of bottlenose dolphins with whale sharks and turtles in the summer; and Humpback whales in the winter.

Morning guided kayaking trips or glorious sundowners nearby on the shores of Lake Sibaya. November to February, witness the rare sight of turtles laying their eggs or hatchlings returning to the ocean.

GUEST FEEDBACK

Boon Stay at Thonga Beach
06 Jan 2014

"Share with you what i wrote on TripAdvisor about our stay at Thonga Beach. I've written many reviews on TripAdvisor, having experienced many places across the world (and throughout Africa in particular), but I'm not sure if there is a score special enough for this piece of heaven that is set on the KwaZulu Natal North coast in South Africa. It is simple but spectacular in every way - from the beautiful, natural and wooden setting under the coastal Forrest; to the inner comfort and quality of the rooms; the fresh, nourishing and delicious food; the daily cake at high tea; the long walks on a 5 kilometer, totally unspoiled golden beach by day - where you and your partner are often the only people on it - and a moon kissed beach by night; the snorkeling in the rock pools; the 4x4 drive to get their; the staff and their wonderful and friendly attitude; and of course the majestic turtle experience - one of the most special wildlife experiences I have ever had the privilege of watching. Having also been to many and probably more active places before, my children (age 10 and 13) have themselves chosen Thonga Beach as they place they'd go back to first every year and I cannot say enough about the staffs role and attitude in this, as they are down to earth, friendly and there to ensure you soothe your soul 100% of the time. From Tandiwe and her crew in the restaurant, Sipiwe and Xolani in the bar, Jabulani in the marine center and David, Ntokoza and Bruce on the management side... Thank you for making our week with you one of the most beautiful we have ever had at a holiday resort (even though the weather didn't quite play its role)."
