Country Living In A World Heritage Site

St. Lucia Wetland Park - a World Heritage Site in South Africa. St. Lucia Wetland Park now joins other international attractions like the Great Barrier Reef, The Great Pyramids as a World Heritage Site (proclaimed 1999). Humankind has long recognized that our globe harbors places of such outstanding value that they deserve to be conserved & protected for the benefit of all humanity.

The Greater St. Lucia Wetland Park is South Africa's first natural World Heritage Site. This entire coastline including the surrounding big 5 game reserves is known as the Elephant Coast.

St. Lucia Wetland Park has Sun, Sea, Sand & Safari All In One Area

Sun - Over 300 sun-filled days a year. Sea - Warm Indian Ocean - all year. Sand - The highest vegetated sand dunes in the world. Safari - The big 5 all in one!!!

The Elephant Coast - a very special slice of Africa incorporating the Greater St. Lucia Wetland Park offering visitors some of the most diverse wildlife and outdoor experiences imaginable.  This unique, 38 000 ha expanse of lake, islands and estuary, incorporates an astonishing variety of habitats ranging from the Lebombo mountains to grasslands, forests, wetlands, mangroves and vegetated dunes, with magnificent beaches and coral reefs.

The combined activities in & around the Greater St. Lucia Wetland Park is found nowhere else on earth!




"The St. Lucia Wetlands Park must be the only place on the globe where the world's oldest land mammal (the rhinoceros) and the world's biggest terrestrial mammal (the African elephant) share an ecosystem with the world's oldest fish (the coelacanth) and the world's biggest marine mammal  (Whale)"

Former President Nelson Mandela, 10th August 2001.
