Thonga Beach Lodge

Stretching along the beautiful shores of the Maputuland coast in northern Kwa-Zulu Natal is Thonga Beach Lodge. Set above a secluded bay and nestled into the indigenous coastal dune forest with sweeping beach views.

In keeping with the ecologically sensitive area, there are 12 thatched bush suites which are raised on wooded stilts. The central lodge has a casual and relaxed atmosphere, inside dining, a bar and deck area, separate swimming pool and a perfectly positioned beach deck with panoramic sea views.

Included in your stay at Thonga is use of snorkeling equipment, guided walks, kayaking, a cultural visit and a sundowner trip to nearby Lake Sibaya. Thonga offers a fully equipped PADI dive centre with turtle tracking and diving available (nov-Feb)

Why we like it

Thonga Beach Lodge is a great choice of beach accommodation to combine with safari in Kwa-Zulu Natal. The wonderful seclusion, the endless beaches and personal service makes for a relaxing holiday. The new rooms now make Thonga a good option for families too.
