Thonga Beach Lodge

Check Availability & Book Online

Thonga Beach Lodge is set on the pristine shores of the Maputuland coast, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Thonga Beach Lodge is situated only metres from the beach and a 25 minute drive from Lake Sibaya (Southern Africa’s largest freshwater lake), which is part of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, now internationally recognised as a World Heritage Site.


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 snorkelling and fantastic off-shore scuba diving.



Set above a secluded bay, Thonga Beach Lodge is nestled into beautiful coastal dune forest with sweeping views of the stunning beach below.

Main Lodge

The dining area – a large thatched ‘rondavel’ opens on to an expansive wooden deck.

There is a lounge with comfortable couches and a cosy fireplace. Located upstairs from the dining room, it offers spectacular views of the beach as well as the incredible forest surrounding the lodge.

The Main Lodge also has a swimming pool, a bar and a rejuvenation centre.


The spacious, thatched suites are hidden in the coastal dune forest and raised on wooden stilts.

Some rooms offer sea views (see rates), whilst others are set within the dune forest. All have private balconies. 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 & twin vanity and hairdryers. Every suite has air conditioning.

The lodge has electricity, 24hrs lighting, mosquito nets, recharge batteries & overhead fans.


Please note that there is no cell phone coverage.
