You will be collected from your accommodation, and the St Lucia Turtle Tour duration is approximately 6 hrs. The reason for this is a night drive will be done through the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, a World Heritage Site, in order to travel to Cape Vidal and then back again. On these night drives leopard, hippo, buffalo, hyena and other antelope can often be seen. Once at Cape Vidal you will be driven 23km North up the beach, further into the iSimangaliso Wetland Park wilderness, in search of the “secretive” leatherback and loggerhead turtles. The duration on the beach is approximately 4 hours as the vehicles are only allowed to be on the beach 2 hrs before and 2 hrs after low tide. Sometime during the night there will be a stop to have a light dinner under the stars.
