Take a Ride on the Wild Side in KwaZulu-Natal

DreamBreak (this trip does not include a host)
Soak up the beauty of iSimangaliso Wetland Park as you watch hippos & crocodiles in their natural setting with an exciting boat trip on Lake St Lucia; plus, enjoy lots of self-guided fun at a tranquil eco-lodge. Book by August 9.

About Your Trip

Travel to St Lucia on the east coast of KwaZulu-Natal, home to the largest estuary in South Africa. Known for its large population of hippos and crocodiles — approximately 800 hippos and 1,000 crocodiles — it’s the perfect area to have a fun game-viewing experience!

And that’s just what you’ll do! On this DreamBreak, you’ll head out on a 2-hour cruise on Lake St Lucia in iSimangaliso Wetland Park — a UNESCO World Heritage site — where you may encounter hippos and crocodiles. Bird-watchers can try to spot yellow weavers, grey herons, water thick-knees and more. Along the way, a knowledgeable ranger will provide fascinating commentary about the estuary and its wildlife.

Back at your peaceful lodge, explore your surroundings at your own pace during leisure time. You can relax by the pool or enjoy an outdoor shower, a great way to connect with nature. Or, book additional tours, such as cultural village tours, wetland tours or a turtle safari (at an additional cost).

No matter what you choose to do, be sure to fuel up to start your day — delicious breakfasts are included throughout your entire stay along with a dinner on Day 1.

What we love:
• Your lodge offers night drives through iSimangaliso Wetland Park where you can look for chameleons, hippos, antelopes, porcupines, nightjars, leopards and hyenas.
• Home to the largest population of free-roaming hippos in South Africa, St Lucia is a can’t-miss destination for those looking to learn more about these creatures.

Hotel Check-in Requirements


By booking this DreamTrip I understand that the hotel may request a credit card upon check-in. The hotel may request the credit card in order to: a) place a monetary hold of US$50-200; or b) hold for incidental, security or other charges. By booking, I acknowledge having received notice of this potential charge and accept that Rovia™ recommends a credit card rather than a debit or bank card be used in the event the hotel requests the card.

Should I have questions concerning the hotel’s policy, I accept responsibility for contacting the hotel independent of Rovia.

We reserve the right to refuse a name change at our sole discretion. If allowed, name changes must be done no later than August 9 and are subject to a fee up to US$100. Name changes after this date are not allowed.
