Ingwenya Lodge is situated on the "outskirts" of the residential area of St Lucia, nestled in the heart of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, South Africa's first UNESCO World Heritage Site. The property borders the nature reserve with a view of both the sea and the estuary, a very unique privilege in St Lucia. The surroundings are very peaceful and hippos graze often on the front lawn of the Lodge during the night.

Small game frequently wander on the premises and a rumour of a leopard in the area has been going around. The six self catering units are named after the five feeder rivers of the St Lucia estuary: Mpate, Nyalazi, Hluhluwe, Mzinene, and Mkuze River and the Mfolozi that flows out to sea very close to the St Lucia estuary.

From Our Guests

  • Great place to stay for discovering the wetlands. Madeleine was very helpful with recommendations and everything else we needed. The lodge is in a quiet street which we 100% preferred to the main street. The best part: the amazing sea view (if you stay in the upper apartment). Also the garden and pool are very nice.I would definitely stay there again.



  • Very spacious apartment, good walking access to the town, excellent WiFi signal, nice outside space with BBQ.

  • Wonderful views across to the sea, with no intervening habitation. Large, relaxed and private. Helpful and friendly manager. Lovely to have a swim in the pool. Great early morning birding within the property.
