Being part of the Zululand Birding Route and home to the Igwalagwala trail
means that the iSimangaliso Wetland Park is one of the best birding spots in South Africa. Published author and ornithologist Ian Sinclair is quoted as saying “The Igwalagwala Trail in St Lucia (South Africa) has to be one of the best birding walks in the world for the number of quality birds for the surface area you have.”
With such high praise it is definitely a place to visit!
Having over 500 species of birds during summer, many of which are migrant birds there are plenty to be sighted in and around the iSimangaliso Wetland Park area.
