Thonga Beach Lodge offers secluded accommodation with sweeping views of the Maputaland Coast, whose crystal clear, warm waters offer South Africa’s best snorkelling and one of South Africa’s best scuba diving sites.

The lodge offers 24 beds, luxurious accommodation and mouth-watering meals, and has a swimming pool and fireside lounge. The thatched bush suites provide guest privacy and were carefully constructed to ensure minimal impact on the environment. 

Thonga Beach Lodge is situated only metres from the beach and a 25-minute drive from Lake Sibaya (Southern Africa’s largest freshwater lake), which is part of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, now internationally recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
