Welcome to Parkers Cottages, situated in St Lucia Estuary, Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa.
We offer comfortable and affordable family accommodation in the gateway to the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park which is now known as iSimangaliso (or ‘Place of Wonder’) Wetland Park declared a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site by Nelson Mandela himself in 1999).
The area as a natural area was established back in 1895, making it one of the oldest natural protected areas in the world.
Situated close to the tropical forest, the beautiful town of St Lucia is an ideal place from which to explore the park, and with 1.3 million hectares to cover, you will not be disappointed.
The iSimangaliso Wetland Park remains the most ecologically and historically diverse park in South Africa due to the 5 unique ecosystems that are prevalent here.
Namely the Indian Ocean with Humpback whales migrating to Madagascar, Leatherback and Loggerhead turtles coming ashore to lay eggs.
The coastal dune forest with the second largest vegetated sand dune in the world Maphelane. The coastal plains with its own unique combination of shrubs and grasslands.
Lake St Lucia which at one time was the largest estuarine system in the world. The Savannah Grassland on the Western side of the lake is typical drier thorny bushveld.
At Parkers Cottages, the fully en suite guest cottages each have two bedrooms, air conditioning, secure parking and are fully serviced. Set within a colourful, tropical garden, there is a private pool and braai area available for guests.
A scrumptious breakfast is included and families are our speciality. St. Lucia is a truly unique place - a beautiful village located within a nature reserve close to the ocean and clean beaches. Nestled between the Indian Ocean and St Lucia Estuary, it is the only private village completely surrounded by a Natural World Heritage Site.
St. Lucia is famous for its host of activities which include Big Five game safaris and night drives in the St Lucia and Hluhluwe iMfolozi Game Reserves, birding, seasonal turtle tours and boat-based whale watching, hippo and crocodile boat cruises, cultural tours and other activities, horse riding in the bush or on the beach, walking trails and fishing.
With 28 kms of pristine beach to explore you could really lose yourself in the environment for days on end. There is a whole host of water-based activities, these include snorkelling and scuba-diving in the warm Indian Ocean, or you could try your hand at deep sea fishing if you prefer to catch a Kingfish or the ever elusive Marlin.
For those interested in eco-tourism, this UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site consists of five separate ecosystems to explore, all of which are intertwined so it may take several days to learn about this fragile environment.
St Lucia is the ideal destination for a fun family holiday or a romantic break and with so much to do, you'll need at least a week!
