A variety of other interesting pastime activities are being offered in the area such as:

The Msinene River also debouch into the St. Lucia Lake and plays a sustainable role in the maintenance or this world renowned ecological system, which is now proclaimed as a world heritage site.

Visitors to Ezulwini Game Lodge have a variety of options to fill their days, including game viewing and birdwatching within our own reserve in open 4 x 4 vehicles where the scarce suni (Livingstone’s antelope) and red duiker vie with African Broad Bill, Pinkthroated Twinspot and the beautiful Narina Trogen as prime species. Early morning or late evening walks are rewarding experiences, with the chance to get unusually close to game, maybe even seeing a bushbaby that only makes its presence known by a raucous night cry. Visits to nearby internationally famous KwaZulu game reserves, cultural venues, fossil beds and other bird watching areas are available by prior arrangement in 4 x 4 open vehicle tours. Fishing can also be enjoyed in the nearby Lake St Lucia’s False Bay Park.
Zululand is one of South Africa’s most diverse regions, offering a glimpse of the imperial world of the Zulu. The nearby Lake St Lucia and Sodwana Bay offer scuba-diving on the world’s southern-most coral reefs, aerial whale shark watching, as well as deep sea fishing. Alternatively, slip silently past prolific birdlife while river cruising down freshwater lakes and floodplains.
