Authentic Bush and Beach Safari at Makakatana 
Set in an indigenous dune forest, hidden just meters away from the waters edge of Lake St Lucia within the Isimangaliso Wetland Park, is an intimate, privately owned establishment called Makakatana Bay Lodge . Embraced by a long family history of many generations, Makakatana Bay Lodge remains the only privately owned lodge situated within the World Heritage Site – The Isimangaliso Wetland Park in Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa. This Site is one of the few natural wonders left on earth where there are unspoiled wilderness beaches, vast wetlands and game reserves all combined into one reserve.


Picnic Lunch with Makakatana Bay Lodge

Kwa Zulu Natal is a lesser-known tourist destination within South Africa, but its fast becoming popular for quality, value-for-money holidays. It offers fabulous bush and beach itinerary combinations complemented by a lovely subtropical climate.

Isimangaliso Wetland Park, previously known as the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park, encompasses 5 major ecological zones:
- Marine Ecosystem: Warm sea and coral reefs teaming with fish, whales and dolphins.
- Eastern Shores Ecosystem: Golden beaches flanked by some of the highest vegetated sand dunes in the world, grassy plains and a variety of wetlands.
- Lake St Lucia: Africa's largest natural estuary, populated by hippopotamus, crocodile and water birds.
- Mkuze Swamps: A reed and papyrus wetland.
- Western Shores: Dry savannah and thornveld with rich deposits of fossils and a variety of game species


Isimangaliso Wetland Park

Less than 1 hours drive away is the Hluhluwe/ Umfolozi Game Reserve, the oldest game reserve in Africa. A great diversity of fauna and flora and excellent big 5 game viewing is offered within its 96000 hectares. This park became world renowned for its successful white rhino conservation.

With all this in mind, Makakatana Bay Lodge is in a fine position to offer both a bush and beach experience all in one. Tranquil boat cruises on Lake St Lucia are added value to this lovely property. The small and cosy lodge offers only 6 colourful and spacious luxury suites, each with large windows and terrace doors that open up to private viewing decks. Delicious cuisine is lovingly prepared by their dedicated chef and served at different dining venues depending on the weather: the Boma for bush dinners, the outdoor dining deck and indoor dining room.


Makakatana Bay Lodge Private Suites

The owners, Hugh and Leigh-Ann Morrison are passionate about their lodge and intimately involved with every aspect. The lodge reflects their individuality and personal style. Standards and service are of top quality, with emphasis on guests’ comfort, relaxation and enjoyment of this authentic African experience.
