Turtle Tours St Lucia South Africa

Join Shoreline Boat, Walking and Turtle Tours while in the St Lucia South Africa area. The company was recently awarded the Turtle Tour concession within the iSimangaliso Wetland Park. The area in which they operate extends from Cape Vidal beach to Leven point a distance of 27km along pristine beach. The area is well known for its Leather Back and Logger Heads that return to the area year after year to lay their eggs.

Departures vary on the tides and therefore each departure will not be the same as the previous night. Making this adventure even more thrilling is the fact that one will also enjoy a night drive enroute to Cape Vidal, incredible scenery as one travels 28km to the beach while within the very first world heritage site in South Africa. This reserve boasts magnificent wildlife sightings including Leopards.

Turtle Tour St Lucia Description:

Your knowledgeable and experienced ranger will pick you up at your accommodation in St Lucia, once all of the clients have been picked up (max 10 passengers) you will travel to the Cape Vidal gate. Once you have entered the park the ranger will give you an in depth introduction to the reserve, the wildlife and also why the area has been proclaimed as a world heritage site. From here on your will travel with a night drive light spotting various animals which may just include a Leopard. Once at the beach once again the ranger will give you an in depth introduction on the species of Turtles that you may come across on the beach. He or she will also inform you as to the way in which to approach the turtles and most importantly how you may photograph these incredible creatures.

Watch in absolute awe as she lays her eggs and then once again makes her way back into the ocean. Did you know that each female turtle will always return to her birth beach and that all males will never again touch sand.

The Turtles remain a protected specie due to poaching world wide through education we hope that we can contribute to their plight.
