Thonga Beach Lodge: Barefoot Luxury

South Africa’s north coast is one of the most underdeveloped areas of the country, so when combined with a warm ocean, endless sandy headlands and verdant green coastal forests, you can imagine it is the perfect setting for a seaside escape.

In Thonga Beach Lodge, one of the country’s most pristine wilderness getaways awaits you on the azure shores of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park (UNESCO World Heritage Site), situated deep in this wilderness of white beaches, blazing corals and freshwater lakes.

The 12 thatched eco-sensitive rooms, with ocean or forest views, boast an earthy elegance, and are positioned to afford maximum privacy and minimal environmental impact. Thonga Beach Lodge is the ideal place to connect with one of Africa’s last pristine wilderness beaches and rediscover your place in it. Three types of room are available: standard, family and then the ultra spacious Honeymoon Suite. With a private plunge pool, the sounds of the sea lapping the shore and the birdsong of the indigenous forest sounding as a constant backdrop, this is THE place for a romantic getaway…

Whether you want action and adventure or downtime with a good book is all your heart desires, there’s something for everybody here.
Ocean excursions can have you whale watching or swimming with dolphins. Scuba Diving on the local reefs lets you access an aquarium-like dream world with an array of marine life the likes of which you never even imagined.
