Thonga Beach Lodge
Revel in one of South Africa’s most photogenic wilderness beaches at this boutique collection of thatched lodges. Thonga Beach Lodge is positioned for privacy and serenity; twelve suites offer either ocean (with plunge-pool) or forest views. Enormous beds and baths come as standard and sinking into both with a sigh of blissful relaxation is something we highly recommend!
The resorts location on the pristine and protected Maputuland Coast promises crystal clear waters, glistening lakes and coastal forests. Access is only by a 4x 4 vehicle and Wi-Fi is limited – lending an intimate, relaxing quality that will suit ‘get-away-from-it-all-ers’.
Lovers of seascapes can discover shallow reefs abundant with sea life, snorkelling here is a must – dolphins may well join in. The intrepid can partake in a spider and scorpion walk as well as turtle tracking and kayaking. There are enough activities to keep every family member entertained and soaking up the sun on the 4km (perfectly safe) white sandy beach is a delight here. Local sights include hippo and bird spotting at Lake Sibaya and cultural tours are well-informed and sensitive.
A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles.
