Description
An exclusive location in the unique conservation area of the iSimangaliso (Greater St Lucia), Wetlands Park, situated in one of Africa's World Heritage Sites. A wetland of international significance and national More pride. Nibela Lake Lodge blends almost magically into the forest surrounds. Eleven luxurious thatched chalets are situated high up in the ...Cool forest beneath a magnificent canopy of trees, where guests can enjoy the solitude and tranquility of Africa at its best. Enjoy breakfast and lunch to the song of indigenous birds or dinner under a sky of scattered stars with only the multitude of bird species breaking the silence of the tranquil sanctuary. Kiddies meals and vegetarian options are also available on request. Offering ultimate comfort, the units include en-suite bathrooms, mini-bar, dressing-room and private viewing deck where sundowners can be enjoyed in a serene and secluded setting with spectacular views. TV's with DSTV in rooms. The prestigious complex seat 30 people and focuses on personalized service and excellent cuisine.

The lodge also boasts a bar with TV and DSTV channels, entertainment centre, curio shop and two swimming pools to cool off in the magical Zululand climate. Swimming towels and umbrellas are available at reception on request. The lodge also has a giant chess set in the garden, a jungle gym and trampolines.

Good day Mnandi We do have a lot of water in the lake and you can fish from the lake shoreline, unfortunately the levels are still a bit low for launching boats at False Bay. We hope to see you at Nibela
