Ever fancied playing Robinson Crusoe… Thonga Beach Lodge is just the beach hideaway to do it at. It’s tucked away in the iSimangaliso World Heritage Park, which unites remote beaches with coastal forests and shimmering lakes.

Your home at Thonga is more luxurious than what Crusoe might have had – with individual air-conditioned chalets raised on wooden stilts in the coastal dune forest. Inside, bleached wood, glass and natural materials create an organic, airy feel, while your private deck looks out at the ocean.

Wake up to waves crashing and head out for a snorkel only a stroll away or morning guided kayaking trips. Go fishing or explore the walking trails, take a dip in the pool or be pampered in the Spa.

If you’re a scuba-fundi, the warm waters off Thonga are home to over 1250 fish species. From November to February, glimpse turtles laying eggs or hatchlings returning to the ocean. The dive boat launches from Thonga’s beach with instructors to help divers of all levels. Look out for game fish, bottlenose dolphins and whale sharks in the summer; and Humpback whales in the winter.

Enjoy sundowners on the shores of Lake Sibaya nearby and meals on the outside dining deck, beneath the stars. You’ll feel like the most luxurious castaway for miles…
