Golden sands meet luscious forests at Sodwana Bay


Stretches of pristine forest, populated by rare and endangered animals, share the spotlight with golden sand beaches and unrivalled dive sites teeming with marine life at Sodwana Bay. In fact, the sea life is so stunning in the waters off this beautiful bay that a ‘living fossil’ - the coelacanth - is known to come out of its deep, dark hiding place to make an appearance here.

As one of the world’s premier diving locations, Sodwana Bay offers visitors the spectacular opportunity to float above a diverse collection of underwater seascapes, over sharp drop-offs and under beautiful overhangs swarming with corals and fish. Turtle tours reveal grand leatherback and loggerhead turtles crawling slowly over the beaches towards their nests, while nature walks through the forests explore the terrain and its wildlife inhabitants.

Sodwana Bay is situated in Maputaland Marine Reserve and the iSimangaliso Wetland Park – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – which ensures the preservation of this beautiful area. This also means that guests have the opportunity to observe large game such as elephant, rhino, buffalo, and leopard which roam through iSimangaliso. Many accommodation options are available and range from luxury Lodges to Beach Camps.
