Sodwana Bay Lodge Dive & Fishing Resort
Sodwana Bay, Zululand - Accommodation
ESTABLISHMENT OVERVIEW:The name Sodwana derives from the Zulu word "Å“odwa" meaning "little one on its own" referring to the small stream which breaches the dunes from the Mgobozeleni-Shazibe lake system.
This estuary is the only substantial breach in the dunes from the St. Lucia in the south to Kosi bay in the north, a distance of 170kms.
Accessibility to the beach that this breach provides, as well as protection offered by Sodwana Bay itself, has provided a base from which divers can explore the southernmost coral reefs in the world.
Sodwana provides unspoiled reefs populated with a phenomenal diversity of tropical fish, large schools of pelagic fish, turtles and of course whale sharks. Quarter mile reef is a shallow reef ranging from 2m to 13m and is popular for sightings of the spotted ragged toothed shark. Two mile reef is the most popular dive site.
