This wetland is toured by a boat. It is a broad river cut off from the ocean by sand bars. It is a beautiful setting, highlighted by the many pods of hippos standing on the muddy bottom. The boat gets very close to these hippos. Another highlight is the huge crocodiles seen swimming along - 8-12feet long. There are also beautiful waterbirds in the marshes. This estuary will eventually die unless it is dredged to reconnect with the sea. Visit it while you can.

We took the Heritage Tours boat and our guide was simply awesome. She didn't tire out from my kids's incessant questioning. We got really close to the animals and it was obvious that she was in control of her boat and the animals' welfare was her priority , not just your typical tourist pleaser. in terms of entertainment, education and simply a great time on the estuary, it was a perfect two hour tour.

Home of the Zulu’s, Shakaland and the Wetlands.
We visited the St. Lucia Wetlands to see their population of around 900 Hippo’s and 1,600 Crocodiles. One Hippo tooth can weigh up to 5kg and their jaws can crush a human like a little tin can. Yet these huge monsters of the river (and a relative of the whale) will not harm the small critters they live with.
Lots of birdlife as well. Worth the trip
