WHAT TO DO
Inside Kuleni Game Park there is a lovely network of walking trails to enjoy across the 200 hectares. There are hidden bird hides, benches to relax on under the trees, and ample opportunity to walk next to the antelope and ungulates that live with us. We have no predators in Kuleni so its safe to walk freely directly from the deck of Imani Bush House or Silver Sky Chalet into the park. Maps of the walking trails are available for you to use during your stay.
Further a field, there is plenty to do and see in and around the Kuleni area including being only 30 minutes from Hluluhwe-Imfolozi Big Five Game Park and Phinda Private Game Reserve. Click the links below for more info on attractions, restaurants and activities for your stay with us.

GAME DRIVE EXPERIENCES

ST LUCIA ESTUARY & CAPE VIDAL
CLIENTS MUST BOOK DIRECTLY WITH TOUR COMPANIES IN ST. LUCIA
Take a casual boat cruise on the St Lucia estuary, a World Heritage Site – view hippos, crocodiles, fish eagle and other birds. Following the cruise you can be taken into the Eastern Shores Game Reserve, between Lake St Lucia and the Indian Ocean, with a chance of seeing elephant, rhino, buffalo, zebra and other species of general game. Visit Mission Rocks, a view site overlooking the lake and the ocean, before arriving at Cape Vidal, with its beautiful beaches. Snorkel or relax on the beach for a couple of hours. The order of events may vary in order to try to be at Cape Vidal as close to low tide as possible for the snorkeling. Plenty of companies in St Lucia offer this tour.
