Experience unspoiled beaches and the vast wetlands of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park in KwaZulu Natal; a world heritage site and one of the very few natural wonders left on this earth. Makakatana Bay Lodge is set on the banks of Lake St Lucia within a pristine wilderness and is the only privately-owned and owner managed game lodge within the park.
The five Standard Rooms are set in the dune forest, and feature double or twin beds, en-suite bathroom, spacious outdoor shower and bath, mini-bar, tea & coffee making facilities, telephone, writing desk, air-conditioning, and a private viewing deck with comfortable chairs.
The two Family Rooms each sleep a maximum of four guests. The main bedroom has a king bed, and the interleading room has twin beds. There is a spacious indoor bathroom with a shower that opens onto an outdoor bathroom with a bath and outside shower, dining area, mini-bar, tea & coffee making facilities, telephone, writing desk, air-conditioning, and a private viewing deck with comfortable chairs.
The Honeymoon Room is positioned to offer guest privacy and offers views out onto the vlei. The room has a romantic outdoor shower, as well as a bath big enough for two, mini-bar, tea & coffee making facilities, telephone, writing desk, air-conditioning, sitting area, and a private viewing deck with comfortable chairs and views across the wetland vlei.
The lodge facilities include various sitting areas, a raised wraparound deck, a boma, a bar, a nearby wine cellar (affectionately called the 'old crab house') and a nearby private bush pool on the edge of Lake St Lucia.
iSimangaliso Wetland Park is home to vibrant wildlife in the game reserve, within Lake St. Lucia’s estuary and the glorious coastal beaches on the eastern shores of the park. You will explore this amazing sanctuary with a number of activities on offer including open vehicle game drives and pontoon boat cruises.
The cruise on Lake St. Lucia is a firm favorite as you watch the resident hippo in action and observe the reed-birds.
The game drives offered at the lodge include a full-day trip into the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Big Five Game Reserve as well as a trip along the western and eastern shores, presenting an opportunity to possibly spot a breaching whale, a pod of dolphins, rhino, and buffalo.

"Amazing !!! That was my first time to be in Africa. Before the trip i was not sure about krugerpark.com. Because of many speculative things about Africa. But it was a beautiful country i have ever seen. Safari.com helped me about transfers and lodge very quickly. I was very pleased about the Nkorho Bush Lodge and all employees. Thank you Safari.com."
