St. Lucia Africa
Gateway to Paradise
Lake St Lucia - Africa at its best
St Lucia Africa
What makes St. lucia and the surrounding areas so special is the huge variety and concentration of African wildlife, birds, reptiles and marine creatures large and small within one area. There is nowhere else in South Africa, or Africa where one can see such a huge variety and concentration of fauna, flora and landscapes. Using St. Lucia as a base, you can see elephants, whales, lions, dolphins, giraffe, giant sea turtles, leopard if you're lucky, birds of all colours, giant African trees and grasslands that stretch for as far as the eye can see, and savannas with heards of plains animals like zebra, wildebeest and buffalo.
