Thonga Beach Lodge

Elephant Coast

Nestled along the untouched Maputuland Coast in KwaZulu-Natal, Thonga Beach Lodge presents an idyllic 24-bed luxury retreat where you can experience the allure of one of Africa’s last unspoiled wilderness beaches. Enveloped by coastal forests, grasslands, and bush, and adorned with glistening lakes and pristine sandy shores, this magical haven beckons. The warm, crystal-clear waters invite you to indulge in South Africa’s finest snorkelling and remarkable off-shore Scuba diving, while birding enthusiasts will find excellent opportunities to observe the diverse avian species. Seasonal activities such as guided birding, scorpion and spider walks and turtle tracking add to the allure. Secluded among the natural surroundings, the 12 thatched bush suites offer enchanting views of either the Ocean or Forest, with some privileged deluxe ocean-view rooms featuring private plunge pools. Each suite is thoughtfully positioned to ensure utmost privacy and minimal environmental impact. Savour the delights of excellent cuisine, which can be enjoyed al fresco on the dining deck or beach deck overlooking the boundless sea. Whether you seek a romantic escape, a memorable family vacation, or a tranquil refuge to unwind, Thonga Beach Lodge is an impeccable choice—a sanctuary far removed from the hustle and bustle of civilisation.
