About Isimangaliso Wetland Park
iSimangaliso Wetland Park is home to vibrant wildlife in the game reserve, within Lake St. Lucia’s estuary and the glorious coastal beaches on the eastern shores of the park. Your stay at Makakatana Bay Lodge is designed around exploring this amazing sanctuary on an open game drive vehicle, on our private pontoon boat, and with your feet in the warm Indian Ocean.
We have put together experiences that we will share with you when you stay with us at Makakatana.
Guests can be accommodated in 6 spacious suites. Three of these are in the dune forest and are frequented by friendly warthog, red darker, nyala, bush babies, birds, and hippo.
One room at the Bay Lodge provides a view out through the forest onto a vlei, and the other has a view through the bush onto the St Lucia Lake.
The Honeymoon Suite is situated privately with views out onto a vlei. Large windows and terrace doors, as well as mosquito gauze screen doors, slide open onto private viewing decks, skillfully combining luxury and integration with the environment.
