Join us on a magnificent and extraordinary safari tour as we go in search of the turtles along the iSimangaliso Wetland Park beach. Not only is iSimangaliso Wetland Park a World Heritage site but the very first of its kind in South Africa.
You will be picked up in the evening from your accommodation in St Lucia and travel by open game drive vehicle to Cape Vidal, a 28 km stretch within the game reserve. This nocturnal drive will give you the opportunity to witness various wildlife en-route. Once you arrive at Cape Vidal your ranger will tell you the steps to follow when coming across a turtle, how to photograph and how to approach these protected species in an unharmful way.
The species one may witness on these outings include Logger Head’s and Leather Back turtles; its a majestic and spine chilling experience. Watch as the females prepare their nests and then endeavour to lay their eggs!
Times vary according to tides and the duration is approximately 6/8 hours. A light dinner and refreshment’s are included on this Turtle Tour Safari.
Please note this experience only takes place from November to February.
