Full-Day Private Tour
This tour is a nature-lover's dream! Enjoy a ferry cruise on Lake St Lucia for your visit to the iSimangaliso Wetland Park - South Africa's first UNESCO World Heritage Site. This park covers an area of 3280 square kilometres and was established in 1895. See large numbers of hippo, crocodiles, pelicans, heron and fish eagle in their natural habitat. You may also be lucky enough to view a leopard in a tree or elephant and giraffe come to drink. The Emdoneni Cat Rehabilitation Centre is a wildlife sanctuary for endangered cat species where injured or orphaned cat species are treated and rehabilitated, with a view to them being released back into the wild. Some of the wild cats housed at the centre include cheetah, African wild cat, cervils and karakuls. This tour is ideal for cruise passengers docked at Richards Bay Harbour.
Tourists departing from Durban will be informed of the departure time depending on the set time available for the ferry cruise on Lake Saint Lucia, which must synchronize with the tour times at the Emdoneni Centre. Therefore, either the visit to the Emdoneni Centre will be done prior or after the ferry cruise and vice versa. This is also applicable to tourists docked at Richards Bay Harbour. You will be informed of the departure time from the quayside depending on which cruise time can accommodate your group. Therefore the tour time could even be a little shorter than indicated.
