The Lodge's name "Ingwenya" derives from the Zulu word for crocodile. It was quite logical to choose a name for our lodge indigenous to Zululand, in this first world heritage site of South Africa. Ingwenya Lodge is situated on the "outskirts" of the residential area of St Lucia, nestled in the heart of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park. The property borders the nature reserve with a view of both the sea and the estuary, a very unique privilege in St Lucia.

Very neat unit overlooking the forest with a sea view. Host was very friendly and helpful with information about the area as well as what activities are available with supporting maps. The hornbills in the tree make for a good sighting. We will be back for sure.

A trip to St Lucia is all about experiencing the wildlife and sights. The owner, Madeleine,makes an efffort to explain what one can expect to do in and around the area. We definitely appreciated it. The rooms are tidally kept and clean. Perfect place to base excursions from in and around St Lucia.

The property is well kept, close enough to the center , yet far enough from the town's hustle. the host is very welcoming and extremely accommodating. She is very knowledgeable of her home town and reachable whenever we needed her.
