Ingwenya Lodge is the only place I have ever been to where I got what was advertised. The photographs on the website were such an accurate reflection of Ingwenya. The hospitality was wonderful. Thank you so much.

Sleeper couch and the mattress in the main bedroom need to be changed. We could feel the springs when sitting/sleeping. Overall stay was okay, it was only ruined by the two items mentioned above. Thanks and Regards

We chose Ingwenya as a last minute stopover and could not be more pleased with our choice. Madeleine welcomed us, despite a late arrival and showed us to a well appointed room with more than average amenities for a self catering stay.

Excellent hospitality - Madeleine made us feel welcome from the moment we stepped out of the car. Nice secluded property, but still close to town. Would definitely stay there again. Upstairs rooms have a view of the ocean over the surrounding vegetation.

About
Description
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 More 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. Less
