Welcome to Sodwana
Tucked away on the east coast of South Africa, in one of the most unique and unspoiled parts of the world. The KwaZulu-Natal province is home to the Zulu people who have inhabited the area, in harmony with the land, for several centuries.
Sodwana is a great little town, lying within the iSimangaliso Wetland Park and the Maputaland Marine Reserve, where efforts are being made to protect its integrity from environmental degradation.
The area has been a Marine Protected Area since the 1960’s. Two of the marine 'Big 5', bottlenose dolphin and loggerhead turtles, live here all year round and they get masses of seasonal visitors like the humpback whales, manta rays, leatherback turtles and the ragged tooth sharks. For underwater exploration this is one of the best.
Your home will be at the Coral Divers Resort. The accommodation is surrounded by pure dune forest and within 2km of the beach. You’ll stay in wooden cabins with a shared shower/toilet block nearby.
Expect flush toilets and hot showers… luxury. There is a main safari style building where all the action happens from meetings to meals, evening relaxing and games.
3 meals a day.
Expect lots of rice, potato, meat and vegetables.
