Lodge Afrique – The ultimate beach and bush escape in St Lucia

Lodge Afrique

Located in the town of St. Lucia on the KZN North Coast, Lodge Afrique is a luxury four-star guest house. Set in lush sub-tropical gardens it is a perfect and comfortable base for holiday makers and eco tourists alike. 

The guest house features eight secluded free standing thatched suites, each accessed by a wooden deck pathway over the well-maintained gardens, which also connects them with the central lodge. 

A full English breakfast is served every morning on the open-air breakfast deck – a perfect spot to soak up the early morning vibrancy of the different bird species, or enjoy a refreshing dip in the sparkling pool.

The central lodge, decorated in vibrant African style with an array of interesting features, also features a bar, a comfortable deck, and a braai and leisure area. 

Accommodation at Lodge Afrique

The Lodge boasts eight luxurious suites, each with a full Afro/Victorian bathroom, as well as an outdoor shower which leads off the private deck.

Lodge Afrique is an ideal base from which to explore South Africa’s first World Heritage Site, the surrounding iSimangaliso Wetland Park – South Africa’s top destination for eco tourists.

With its beautiful lakes, lagoons, fresh water swamps and grass lands, iSimangaliso Wetland Park supports more species of animals and birds than many of the better-known parks and deltas in Southern Africa.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.

Adventure!

You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
