Serene Estate St Lucia

Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park, KwaZulu Natal and the north coast, South Africa

At a Glance

  • Glide over the sparkling waters of Lake St Lucia on a boat cruise, where hippos spray in the distance and fish eagles call as they soar above. A perfectly halcyon way to spend an afternoon.

  • Forget your cares amidst the lush gardens, where the limpid waters of the pool beckon in the tropical heat.

  • A nature lover's delight, the Elephant Coast and St Lucia abounds with marine life with superb cetacean sightings in the winter months (June to Nov) and turtles nesting over the summer on the remote beaches.

  • Delight in the unorthodox but quirky mix of modern and African decor, where nature and the culture of KwaZulu Natal add a unique aesthetic. 

  • Feel the thrill of spotting the rare white rhino on a game drive in the nearby Hluhluwe iMfolozi Game Reserve.
