A nature lover’s dream, Thonga offers guests a myriad unique outdoor activities. Go on an early morning guided kayaking expedition on the tranquil Lake Sibaya, explore the coastal forests, sandy beaches and unique grasslands on foot, or snorkel a prisine reef within 500 metres of the lodge. Birdwatchers will love the diversity of feathered friends to be spotted in the area, and scuba divers will spend hours getting up close and personal with the area’s game fish and perhaps even bottlenose dolphins. For those who prefer to remain above water, an ocean adventure affords the opportunity of spotting the rich marine life of the Elephant Coast by boat. The Maputaland coastline is renowned for fishing, and nocturnal walks and drives along the beach in summer can see lucky guests spotting some little egg-laying turtles. Cultural enthusiasts can visit a nearby homestead, school and clinic to see how the peaceful Tsonga people go about their rural lifestyles, before heading back into the wild for sundowners on South Africa’s largest fresh water lake. Last but certainly not least, busy adventure-filled days can be balanced with total relaxation at the Thonga spa.
Go ahead and indulge your wild beach hut fantasies – the Thonga team is guaranteed to make it worth your while.
