Isimangaliso is an awesome family holiday. It has the best of both worlds. Game drives and the ocean. So lots of activities for the whole family

We have visited both the Eastern & Western shores several times over the last few years and sadly see a decline in facilities each time. With no restaurants, visitors have to bring their own food to braai or picnic but almost nowhere can one find...More

For all the birders this is the place to visit. Cape Vidal is a lovely swimming beach as well. Please take care. Food must be LOCKED away, the monkeys even open cooler boxes.

Coming from 3 days at the Kruger we enjoyed very little the wildlife here and we pointed more to the beach, which is spectacular! We had a pic nic there but you can also have Brai if you wish!

This game park is great. We saw so much wildlife on our 2 game drives that it was unbelievable! Definitely worth the visit when you're in the area.

It is a nice park and we saw lots of animals. Only the mission rocks beach was a dieapointment for us, as there was no beach, but only rocks. No chance to get into the water

Nice tour along the river and lake with crocs (only 3 of them) and hippos (bunches) which I enjoyed best!!!! They offer some fruits and tea, coffee and chocolate. Good experience to get close to the fat buddies! Plus, you can encounter ellies, kudu, fish...More

I think it is February/March. The turtles start laying their eggs in November and incubation is about 65 days. The tours will drive you up the beach at night to see the turtles - you have a chance of seeing leopards and... More

I think it's about 150 cars a day. We drove in about 9.30a.m on a moody weather day and it was fine. I think it opens early. Cape Vidal is worth it.
