Accommodation "Away from the Rush!"
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.(sea and estuary views are limited due to lush overgrowth and distance to the ocean)
The surroundings are very peaceful and hippos graze often at the entrance of the Lodge during the night. Small game frequently wanders on the premises and a rumor of a leopard in the area has been going around.
Some self catering units are named after the five feeder rivers of the St Lucia estuary: Mpate-, Nyalazi-, Hluhluwe-,Mzinene-, Mkuze River as well as the Mfolozi that flows out to sea very close to the St Lucia estuary.
Facilities includes air conditioning, a new swimming pool, Wi-Fi (wireless internet), an adventurous Jungle Gym for the kids, DSTV(bring your own smart card *), safe and a hiking trail that starts from premises. Units are serviced daily.
* unless permanently married to your own decoder.
