Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa

Thonga Beach Lodge is set on the pristine shores of the Maputuland coast, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. This 24-bed luxury lodge is the ideal place to discover one of the most unspoilt wilderness beaches left on the African continent. Mabibi is a magical place of coastal forests, grasslands, bush, shimmering lakes and exquisite sandy beaches. Its crystal clear, warm waters offer South Africa's best snorkeling and fantastic off-shore scuba diving.

Set above a private, sandy beach and nestled into magnificent coastal dune forest, Thonga Beach Lodge captures the essence of a luxury Robinson Crusoe hideaway. Traditional Thonga fishing villages provided the inspiration for this unique retreat that celebrates the true spirit of Mother Nature.

Additional Activities

Turtle Tracking: Turtle tracking is offered in the evening from mid-October to end-January for the laying season and early February to mid-March for the hatchlings.

Snorkelling: Mabibi is regarded as one of the best snorkelling sites in South Africa

Scuba Diving: This is an adventure activity with boats launching straight through the surf. Scuba diving at Mabibi is also phenomenal, with reefs located a short distance from the lodge.  The professional lodge diving team accommodates all enthusiasts; from the novice to the veteran wanting a tour of the very best our reefs have to offer.


The spacious, thatched suites are hidden in the coastal dune forest and raised on wooden stilts to ensure no harm comes to the sensitive dune soils. Inspired by Thonga architecture, the rooms have been carefully positioned to guarantee guests complete privacy and most rooms offer extensive views of the ocean and surrounding bush from private balconies. Luxuriously decorated, the rooms exude a romantic ambiance. Bleached wood, glass and natural materials have been wisely used to create an open, airy feel. The en-suite rooms have a bathroom with bath, shower and twin vanity.
