A rustic, forested eco-lodge set on the beautiful beaches of Maputaland

Settled along one of the most pristine coastlines in South Africa and next to the crystal clear waters of Sodwana Bay is a quaint eco-lodge. Sodwana Bay Lodge is the perfect place to get some ‘Vitamin Sea’ and rejuvenate away from the bustle of urban life. The location is also a paradise with incredible biodiversity featuring whale sharks, humpback whales and plenty of fish. The bay is home to the southernmost coral reefs in Africa and an abundance of sea life. There are awe-inspiring activities, like scuba diving, whale watching, canoeing, bird watching, conservation-based day trips, and turtle tours. Alternatively, visitors can enjoy a relaxing day at a nearby spa.

Stay Location


Best time to go to Elephant Coast

The subtropical climate of the Elephant Coast offers visitors year-round warmth thanks to the Indian Ocean and closeness to Mozambique. The region has hot, wet summers and cooler, dry winters. With most of the rainfall occurring during the summer months, the best time to visit varies depending on what activities travellers would like to do. November and January are the best for tracking turtles, while whale watching is great between June and November. For the best beach weather, visit between April and September.
