Please Note: On a St Lucia Turtle Tour, we do not always see turtles!

We collect you from your accommodation, and the St Lucia Turtle Tour duration is approximately 6 hrs. The reason for this is we do a night drive through the iSimangaliso Wetland Park (a World Heritage Site), in order to travel to Cape Vidal and then back again. On these night drives we often see leopard, hippo, buffalo, hyena and other antelope. Once at Cape Vidal we then drive onto the beach where we drive 23km up the beach, further into the iSimangaliso Wetland Park wilderness, in search of our “secretive” leatherback and loggerhaed turtles. The duration on the beach is approximately 4 hrs as we are only allowed to be on the beach 2 hrs before and 2 hrs after low tide. Sometime during the night we will stop and have a lovely dinner under the stars which includes a variety of cold meats and salad with drinks.
