Local Info

Perna Perna St Lucia is set in the heart of St Lucia, walking distance to all local shops, supermarkets and restaurants. The holiday units are fully equipped and serviced daily to ensure a stress free stay.

St Lucia is the gateway to the iSimangaliso Wetland Park World Heritage Site, one of KwaZulu- Natals top tourist destinations. Situated 1.8 kms to the Eastern Shores and Cape Vidal entrance gate, St Lucia is a favourite base from which to explore the Park boasting terrestrial, ocean and lake habitats or the nearby Big 5 Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park.

Whilst the Eastern Shores is home to rhino, buffalo, leopard, elephant and a variety of antelope species, the Lake St Lucia estuary boasts a host of water birds including Pelicans, Kingfishers, Geese, Ducks, Heron, Fish Eagles, and Storks. Lake St Lucia´s eastern shores are comprised of some of the highest forested dunes in the world, with the 2nd highest, the Maphelane dune visible from St Lucia.

Hippo and crocs are found in abundance in the lake and estuary and the oceans offer superb dolphin and whale spotting in the migratory season from June to November. From November to February, the leatherback and loggerhead turtles arrive to lay eggs on specific spots along the beach.

Take a sunset cruise on the Lake, try one of the various game drives, night drives, walking trails, explore our beautiful pristine beaches, visit the informative crocodile centre or just relax by the swimming pool. Visit nearby Cape Vidal with the offshore reef providing safe swimming and excellent snorkeling. Or self-drive on the eastern or western shores taking in the view points to see the wetlands and ocean views.

Whatever you choose to do, a stay at Perna Perna St Lucia resort is sure to re charge your battery in this beautiful part of South Africa.
