Here animals roam the streets and hippos, crocodiles and sharks live in the estuary. (Actually the hippo also roam the street, so when you bump into something big and fat late at night, don’t insult it. It may just bite your head off.)

St Lucia has long been known as a fishing destination for angling backpackers, but has grown in popularity with budget travellers as one of the top natural tourist destinations with unspoilt beaches and a myriad of walking trails for nature buffs.

Game walks take you past buffalo, antelope, numerous birds, and possibly even leopard.Over 90% of South Africa’s natural crocodile population live here.
The deep-sea fishing is extraordinary and there are plenty of boats that can take you on wild wave rides or sunset river cruises.

See the Big Five, snorkel, go on boat cruises, rub shoulders with hippo, compare teeth size with a crocodile, take guided walks, sunset drives and see Zulu dancing all before bedding down at Budget Backpackers.

Shonalanga Backpackers offer budget accommodation and specialise in cultural activities, have 4 open game-viewing vehicles and their guides are well trained.
