Hi again,

Next step was iSimasalingo Wetland Park, a really nice place, and not a very busy one:

10. iSimasalingo Wetland Park.

iSimangaliso is the third largest protected area in South Africa, and was the first World Heritage Site in this country, declared in 1999. It is located on the east coast of the KwaZulu-Natal province, about 250 km north of the city of Durban. The variety of habitats is very wide, and includes about 220 km of coastline, the estuary of the iMfolozi River and the mouth of St. Lucia Lake, lake areas such as the one mentioned or the Kosi Lake, wooded savannas and jungle and swampy areas. All this makes the wildlife variety impressive. More than 530 bird species have been described in iSimangaliso and mammals include antelopes, rhinos and hippos. We stayed two nights, and we visited the area closest to the town of St. Lucia, which contains a multitude of accommodations and other services. Specifically we moved through both shores of Lake St. Lucia, known as Eastern and Western Shores, respectively, as well as through the mouth of the lake. We also did a boat trip through the St. Lucia Lake to see hippos and crocodiles.

Below you can find some pictures. If you are interesed in a more complete description, please click on the link above.
