Good day, I've never been to the wetlands and we want to go there in the June 2020 school holiday.  Which is the best place to go between Kosi bay and St. Lucia or is there any other places you would suggest?  What campsites would you suggest?

Wellcome on the forum. Outside Hluhluwe is Bahati Caravan Park and Bushbaby Lodge camping Park. Enjoy.

what set up do you have, are you geared for off road or on road. 

two roads diverged in a wood and i took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.

we have camped  several times at kosi bay on third lake , its a park board campsite and is good, south of kosi bay is bhanga nek. there are private campsites just of the beach, however a 4x4 is needed to get there, very private , very rustic but very good. then we have also used cape vidal a little north of st lucia , also good. was at st lucia earlier this year, not what it used to be.

Welcome To the Forum.

Mabibi also has a Bush Camp and a lovely beach. I have heard of people having problems at Black Rock, so do be careful if you are not a big group.

The Monkeys at Cape Vidal can be very problematic and there has been a recorded attack on campers at St Lucia, so do be careful and lock up gear at night. I realize that this is difficult when tenting, but stay alert and be aware of your surroundings. The whole Wetland at St Lucia has dried up, probably due to alien vegetation, so bird life has diminished accordingly.

Also look at The Palms Caravan Park or Three Palms - cannot remember the name which is close to Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park. We also enjoyed Bush Baby with it's close access to The Mkuze Park & Isimangaliso Wetland Park. 

Iswayelo or something like that, is very close to the top and has the authorization to issue the permits to get into Kosi Bay Mouth. The Camp is right next to the Gate and has the Fish Traps and good Tropical Diving in Kosi Bay.

If you are in the top section, do take the time to visit Thembe & Ndumo Parks as well. If you are going to spend a few days visiting all the Parks and protected Wetland areas, it would probably be worth your while to get a Rhino Card, which will save you money, if you are going to spend more than three or four days visiting these Parks.

Safe Travels and let us know how you enjoyed your holiday and what you did...

We stayed at Sugarloaf 5 days in St lucia in September and really liked it. No problems just watch out for monkeys stealing your food if not locked away.
