Things to Do in St. Lucia
The Crocodile Research Centre
Lake St. Lucia is home to the largest breeding population of crocodiles in South Africa and at the Crocodile Centre you will learn many aspects of the life of this ancient reptile.
The Crocodile Center is one of only four permit holders that are allowed to keep the impressive Gaboon Adder in captivity. The greater St. Lucia Wetland Park has more than 109 species of reptile.
There is also a curio shop and a cycad garden in which many of these plants, which have remained unchanged for 200 million years may be seen.
St. Lucia's Pristine Beaches
St. Lucia has long, pristine golden beaches, lapped by the warm waters of the Agulhas current, moving slowly south from Mozambique.
Between the beaches and Lake St. Lucia are some of the world's highest vegetated dunes as well as swamp and sand forest plus some of the oldest peat lands in the world, some over 45,000 years old!
Hiking through the Dune Forest
There are many unique trails lasting from a half an hour to three hours in and around the village of St. Lucia. One of these trails winds through dune forest ending overlooking the ocean, birdlife and antelope are plentiful on these walks.
Another interesting walk starts at Mission Rocks Beach, walking northworth on the beach, along uninhabited coastline for about an hour before one get to a cave with fruit bats. It is recommended that this walk be undertaken during low tide.
Please note that we are on the Zululand Birding Route .
St. Lucia Horse Trails
For those who have never ridden before and even for "old hands" there is little more romantic than a ride along the beautiful white sand beside rolling waves.
On lucky days dolphins ride the waves along side as you head up the beach. In Summer one can see the tracks of turtles who came in the previous night to nest and July to November migrating whales pass on their way to Madagascar.
