To St Lucia Wilds a big thank you. We had a great time. The service they offered was good and the facility clean and adequate for our needs of a week away from home. Don't know if they ordered the good weather but that suited us well. Thanks again.

St Lucia Wilds is a lovely and quiet place to spent a holiday. I really liked the chalet: it was FULLY equipped and well looked after. The hostess and workers allowed for privacy but also provided us (first time time visitors) with valuable guidance about activities around St Lucia. Our whole family enjoyed our week at St Lucia Wilds. Although there were challenges with water supply during our stay, our needs were adequately provided for. If I get the opportunity to visit to Isimangaliso Wetlands, I will certainly want to be at St Lucia Wilds again.

If you are looking for reasonably priced accommodation, very close to nature but within walking distance of the town, with comfy beds, which is very well equipped and clean, then St Lucia Wilds is the place for you. Imelda was extremely helpful, answering all our questions and even giving advice on the wind speed which helped determine our activities so that we could pack as much as possible into the two days we were there. We all had a wonderful weekend and I would definitely recommend St Lucia Wilds to my friends.
