About Sodwana Bay Lodge

Sodwana Bay Lodge and Hotel Resort is placed in the heart of Maputaland on the western shore of Lake Shazibe, bordered by the world’s highest naturally vegetated dunes which shelter the golden beaches of the lush interior. The area is surrounded by fertile swamps and sand forests with rare and protected animal and plant species, as well as wide lakes and extensive river estuaries which are full of life. The careful design of the lodge has been done in order to match the rustic, Eco-orientated nature of the Kwa Zulu Natal region. There is a full range of dive courses offered and is run by the fully-equipped PADI 5 star IDC scuba centre. There are over 1200 different tropical marine fish to be seen in the many coral reefs at the mecca, Sodwana Bay Lodge. Magnum Fishing Charters are also on site for that deep sea fishing experience.

      I cancelled as I was asked to go to work Monday and the dates did not match. I asked Sodwana lodge to rebook for 1st to 4th November. You have not paid them that deposit I paid you as I want to use that for the deposit in November. If we are to fight about this then I will review using Safarinow as a contact and deal with sodwana directly.

      It is a lovely lodge, unfortunately the beach is far from the lodge and it is not safe to walk or jog in the area, our friend was attacked with a machete. The Restaurant was unfortunately disappointing, the food was almost not eatable

      Nice place to stay, not saw close to the beach as expected, we needed to travel with the car for 15 minutes and stand in line in front of the beach to enter it. Cabin was basic but fine, showers sometimes not warm.Staff very helpful and kind. Diving school at the lodge good.The restaurant serves ok food, nothing special but fills you up well. Breakfast is not too special.
