Forest Villas


Forest Villas
3 stars

Rhinos, elephants, whales and coelacanths. The world's oldest, biggest, most impressive mammals - and coelacanth who is a fish. But don't hold it against him. He's the oldest one swimming the oceans today. Mates with the dinosaurs, he was thought to be extinct until he was spotted again in 1938.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor

This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

What's so unusual is this entire crew share an ecosystem and it's here. In glorious St Lucia. Man has taken a shine to this place too. 130,000 years after the first lot turned up, people are still deciding this is the place to be. The owners of Forest Villas opened their doors in 2017.

It's in the town of St Lucia, iSimangaliso world heritage site. Forest Villas isn't huge but it's smart and stylish and the owners have a lot of experience, having worked in the industry for years. St Lucia is in the North East of Zululand, two and a half hours from Durban. It's a hub for 1,200 Nile crocodiles and 800 hippopotami. That's not the correct plural but it sure sounds sweet. Just don't say it to their faces. Saying that, this lot are used to humans so they might let you take a selfie. But you'd be a fool to consider such a ghastly thing. Or dead damn quick. Seriously though, this is a decent place to make your base.

17 air conditioned en-suite shower rooms. All have a terrace with garden view.  Self catering family units available too. And it's all very lush with lots of vegetation around the pool and decked walkways to get you there.


Breakfast included; swimming pool; wi-fi; parking; packed lunches available; braai (that's barbeque to the rest of the world); babysitting; laundry service


Tonnes to do: walking tours, bike tours, local culture tours; St Lucia's lake is right by you. Have a boat cruise or a sunset cruise.

And the Indian Ocean is right there with turtles on the beach in summer and whale sharks in the sea. Daily opportunities to go deep sea fishing; take a hippo and croc safari (St Lucia's Crocodile Centre is 1.4 miles away); go on a snorkelling safari in Cape Vidal. and don't miss a night drive safari.
