iSimangaliso Wetland Park is home to vibrant wildlife in the game reserve, within Lake St. Lucia’s estuary and the glorious coastal beaches on the eastern shores of the park.


Makakatana Bay Lodge is set on the banks of Lake St Lucia within the iSimangaliso Wetland Park World Heritage Site, one of the few natural wonders left on earth.

Experience unspoiled beaches, vast wetlands, game drives around our game reserve, and an unforgettable boat cruise on the estuary. Our goal is to show off this unique and pristine wilderness gem, the perfect addition to a typical safari holiday.

Makakatana Bay Lodge is the only privately-owned and owner-managed game lodge within the iSimangaliso Wetland Park.

Experience this magnificent area from the comfort of our spacious rooms, set on raised decks within the wilderness of the game park.


    Morning Teas/Coffees
    1 Wetland game drive per day.


Your stay at Makakatana Bay Lodge is designed around exploring this amazing sanctuary on an open game drive vehicle, on our private pontoon boat, and with your feet in the warm Indian Ocean.


Stay at least 3 nights so that you can experience the game drives in the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, pontoon cruises on Lake St Lucia, a beach and bush safari and a trip to the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Big Five game reserve.
