Robinson Crusoe goes percale in these glass-fronted, thatched bush huts situated right at the pristine Mabibi beach in Northern KwaZulu-Natal. Here are our top 5 reasons to book a stay at Thonga Beach Lodge
Reason 1: The unspoilt golden beach of Mabibi is one of the cleanest, most beautiful beaches in the world, as it stretches forever to the North and South within the protection of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park.
Reason 2: The snorkeling right at the lodge and by boat to nearby safe coral atolls reveals a world of diverse oceanic life, including dolphins and turtles.
Reason 3: Thonga Beach Lodge is proud of its privileged position in protecting turtles and their nesting sites stretch along the shores right at the lodge and beyond.
Reason 4: The food at Thonga Beach Lodge receives repeated and well-deserved acclaim, with a chef who prides himself on discovery of top local produce. Here you can walk off the beach to taste the very best that this rich region has to offer, including sweet tropical fruits, fresh local seafood, healthy, modern culinary delights and decadent baked treats.
Reason 5: The commitment of Isibindi Africa Lodges to local community support is inspiring and cultural tours, visits to the local primary school supported by the lodge and interactions with staff will leave you feeling that you contributed something to this special corner of the planet.
