iSimangaliso Wetland Park

One of the most diverse parks in the world, iSimangaliso Wetland Park encompasses coral reefs, lakes, rivers, forests and stunning beaches, as well as being home to a plethora of wildlife

Protecting the vast unspoilt northern coast of KwaZulu -Natal, this 2500-sq km UNESCO World Heritage Site, incorporates an astonishing diversity of habitats including four separate Ramsar sites. South Africa’s largest freshwater lake lies within the borders of iSimangaliso Wetland Park, as does the continent’s largest estuarine system.

The world’s most southerly coral reefs lie off its shores, while the interior supports rare patches of fragile sand forest and large tracts of classic African savannah – and it’s all hemmed in by a pristine string of sandy beaches set below the world’s tallest (up to 170m high) forested dunes.
