Visit Afrikhaya Guest House as your gateway to a wondrous outdoor environment: The Elephant Coast.
''The St.Lucia Wetland Park must be the only place on the globe where the world’s oldest land mammal (the rhinoceros) and the world’s biggest terrestrial mammal (the elephant) share an ecosystem with the world’s oldest fish (the coelacanth) and the world’s biggest marine mammal (the whale)”. This is what former president Nelson Mandela said when a herd of elephants was relocated into the Park.
