    This is essentially a full day beach trip. Cape Vidal is situated within the eastern shores game reserve and therefore is exclusively for day visitors and guests staying at the resort. The bay is safe for swimming and snorkelling with its warm water and endless miles of deserted white sand beaches. Minimum of 2 pax per tour includes all gate fees, picnic lunch and refreshments.
  • Estuary Boat Tour St Lucia
    There are daily scheduled boat tours on the narrows section of Lake St Lucia Estuary. We do however recommend these tours specifically for crocodile and hippopotamus viewing only! It is rather 'touristy' due to the large number of people on board and lack of intimacy however this is one of the best areas to be almost guaranteed to see both hippo and Nile crocodile.

    A Zulu cultural experience and traditional dancing. Undertake a tour of a traditional Zulu homestead and get an insight into the vibrant Zulu culture both past and present.
