ISIMANGALISO WETLAND PARK 

maputuland whale shark
iSimangaliso in Zulu, roughly translates to “something wonderful'', which is why you won’t be let down when you first glance at the amazing ecosystems of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park. 
 
Centred around the Lake St Lucia lagoon system, Isimangaliso was declared a World Heritage Site in 1999 (the first in South Africa). The Park includes the lake, beaches, grasslands, dune forests and marine reserve. It is home to an exceptional biodiversity featuring over 500 bird species. It is the largest estuarine system in Africa and includes the southernmost extension of coral reefs. 
 
Among its attractions are the world's highest forested sand dunes, large numbers of nesting turtles, whales, dolphins, whale sharks and huge numbers of waterfowl including large breeding colonies of pelicans. 
 
In recent years, buffalo and elephant have been reintroduced into the eastern shores of the lake. Further inland, Black rhino have been given a second chance at increasing their population. The 400 km2 uMkhuze Game Reserve is the safari hub of the area, and is a great alternative to a traditional Kruger National Park safari.
