St Lucia South Africa Walking / Hiking Trails

In addition to the game drives and tours through the iSimangaliso Wetlands Park (formerly known as the Greater St Lucia Wetlands Park), we also offer a variety of guided walking/hiking trails in the St Lucia area and in the iSimangaliso Wetlands Park. Our St Lucia walking trails include marine walks along our coastline, where the rocky shores and their abundance of marine organisms are explored, bush walks and forest walks.
Our St Lucia walking Trails cover areas of sub-tropical coastline, dense sub-tropical dune forest and open savannah, with some routes following the shore of Lake St. Lucia and various wetlands. These walks not only give you the chance to see a range of animal species on foot, but also offer incredible views over the lake system and Indian Ocean, a wonderful way to experience St Lucia.

Our favourite walking trails around St Lucia are our Turtle trails and the combination Bush and Beach walking trails where both these environments are covered, thus providing the chance to fully experience the diversity of the St Lucia Wetlands Park. On this St Lucia walking trail we often see turtles, rhino, dolphins, zebra and buffalo, all within an hour of each other.

All of our our bush and coastal walking trails are guided by an experienced ranger to ensure an informative walk.

The Sea Turtle Trail

The east coast of Africa is home to large permanent populations of sea turtles which feed and breed along the coast. Off the coast of St Lucia, two species of sea turtles can be viewed throughout the year, the Loggerhead turtle and the Hawksbill turtle. Loggerheads and Hawksbill turtles feed close to shore along the rocky shoreline, rich in crustaceans, sponges and seaweeds and can be easily viewed from the shore in areas where they feed.

Join us on a walking trail along this pristine shore to view the sea turtles in their feeding grounds.
