Craving a low-key holiday that’s slightly off the beaten track? Surrounded by KwaZulu-Natal’s iSimangaliso Wetlands Park near Hluhluwe, Nibela Lake Lodge is ideally located to deliver a nature-based holiday with a difference for the whole family.
Few lodges can say that they are located on the cusp of a World Heritage Site. This area is blessed by the waters of Lake St. Lucia, an estuarine lake system which sustains an abundance of birds and wildlife which proves that you don't have to make your way to the Kruger to see it all.
Nibela Lake Lodge is easily accessible from Durban. The two-hour road trip is all part of the experience as you pass stunning coastal views and waving isiZulu children from the roadside villages.
Once you arrive, you’ll be rewarded with your own private haven in beautifully appointed timber chalets with private balconies and lakeside views, not to mention the background cheer of birds from the surrounding canopy of trees.
The main lodge offers an outdoor viewing deck, an ideal spot for sundowners served just before dinner at our Lakeview Restaurant. Our menu offers continental breakfasts, three-course dinners and comfort food like pizzas and crispy chips. Our colourful milkshakes are a hit with the kids, while our ice-cold beers keep our older guests refreshed and relaxed.
Spend time venturing out to explore the surrounding area of iSimangaliso. Go walking, fishing, diving, biking, birding or picnicking. Enjoy game viewing on a day trip to Hluhluwe Umfolozi Game Park, or kick back near the pool and catch up on some good old-fashioned relaxation.
