Teeming with wild life, The Elephant Coast offers more than just The Big 5, this area has drawn "Big White Hunters" from Europe and abroad since the early 1700's. Big 5 is a hunting nomenclature that was adopted by a group of people that where brave enough to hunt Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Rhino and Buffalo with the short range half a ponder musket of times gone by.

The jewel of the Elephant Coast is un-mistakenly The Greater St. Lucia Wetland Park, with its array of amenities. Since the sunrises on the East Coast over the ocean, the mornings are the most exquisite time of the day on the St. Lucia beaches. It is this time of the day when Dolphins frolic in the waves while smaller creatures play on the golden brown beaches.

  • Daily hippo and crocodile launch tours on the St. Lucia Lake system
  • Seasonal Whale Watching and Marine Turtle Nesting Tours
