• Explore the mission rocks and beaches at Makakatana Bay Lodge when you book their Adventure Travel & Tour Vacation Special Offer

Adventure Travel Special Offer

From R1 995 Per Person Sharing Per Night

Makakatana Bay Lodge offers adventure travel holidays daily. Don’t believe us? Just last month a crocodile took a reedbuck as it came down to drink, while an opportunistic hyena followed in hot pursuit. Thinking he’d get a free meal, the hyena leant in to grab the reedbuck, but the croc had other plans and swapped his meal for the hyena instead – all while our guests watched on at the Makakatana Pan.

The iSimangaliso Wetland Park promises plenty of heart racing moments like these, along with the surrounding beaches giving you an opportunity to experience the thrill of the Indian Ocean while riding its waves or swimming underneath them.

How you do bush and beach is completely up to you, however we can arrange a holiday that’s either tame or adrenaline junkie approved.
