Sobhengu Lodge offers guests the opportunity to indulge in solitude at its thatched, self-catering chalets. Built above a sand forest, the chalets are hidden among trees and connected by raised wooden walkways. The resort is perched on the peninsula of Lake St Lucia with exhilarating views of the lake.
South Africa is famed for five World Heritage Sites, but the most impressive of all is the Greater St Lucia Wetland. Millions of years of gentle abrasion by wind and water has painstakingly moulded a unique landscape, which harbours the most sensitive and diverse flora and fauna within its myriad of ecosystems. The opportunity to luxuriate in a mosaic of landforms ranging from savannah through to wetland and ocean is truly rare. What better way to appreciate the beauty of nature than at Sobhengu Lodge. Perched on the Peninsula of Lake St Lucia, the lodge offers guests a chance to indulge in solitude at its unique, self-catering chalets. Built above a sand forest, the chalets are hidden among trees and connected by raised wooded walkways. This is complemented by the exhilarating views of Lake St Lucia (guests should check on the level of the lake). From Sobhengu’s private boma, guests are afforded the opportunity to take a glimpse of the birds and wildlife. For the more adventurous, hiking and quad biking trails abound, providing guests with the opportunity to closely inspect the remains of fossilized flora and fauna dating back six million years.
