Question : Where can I go in South Africa to see incredible sightings of hippo and crocodile ?
Answer : Makakatana Bay Lodge, in the Greater St Lucia Wetlands Park (also now known as the iSimangaliso Wetland Park).
Recent guests to this lodge have enjoyed not only sightings of hippo and crocodile on the exclusive Makakatana boat trips on the St Lucia estuary, but have also been privileged to see a large herd of elephant who have decided they really do quite like the area around the lodge for these past 2 weeks ! Hippos also come to visit the watering hole in front of the lodge at night while guests enjoy their dinner on the front deck by candle light.
And if that wasn’t enough, there was also the sighting of a male leopard who posed in a tree for a few hours …
Makakatana Bay’s premier location within the Wetland Park makes it also ideal for activities like fishing, boating and scuba diving to hiking, horseriding, game viewing, whale and bird watching.
