This luxury beach lodge offers five room types all built of wood; thatch as well as glass on raised platforms set in indigenous coastal bush nestled in the undulating dunes within wave breaking distance from the sea.


Thonga Beach Lodge lies in Mabibi Bay; adjacent to Africa’s southern-most coral reefs making it the only tropical dive site in South Africa. In global terms; Mabibi offers some of the best diving in the world, but it has gone largely unnoticed because of its remoteness. Even in South Africa it has remained secluded and so divers are guaranteed an exciting underwater experience.  More than 1,200 species of fish are on the reefs off Mabibi; including Moorish idols, parrot fish, blue surgeons and marble as well as manta rays. The warm Indian Ocean waters also attract huge schools of bottlenose dolphin as well as sharks, whale sharks and turtles. Thonga Beach Lodge is the perfect luxury dive resort from which to explore these pristine waters.

Lake Sibaya has 100km of untouched shoreline and, at 70 square kilometres, is South Africa’s largest freshwater lake. The lake falls within the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, now a World Heritage Site, and the Ramsar Convention assures its international conservation status.

The lake’s diverse flora provides a variety of habitats for birds, mammals and aquatic life. Research reveals that hundreds of years ago the lake was once connected to the sea and with the natural closure of the estuary, numerous fish and aquatic creatures were trapped in a fresh water environment.

Lake Sibaya contains the second largest population of hippopotamus and crocodile in KwaZulu-Natal and is an important breeding, feeding and roosting area for a host of bird species. Surface water in the surrounding coastal plain often disappears completely during dry spells, making the lake the only source of permanent water for birds and mammals.
