OUR LOCATION

A 4x4 vehicle is needed to get to Thonga Beach Lodge. Guests without 4x4 vehicles will be collected from the secure, guarded parking at Coastal Cashews and transferred in open 4x4 vehicles to the lodge. The trip to the lodge from Coastal Cashews is approximately one hour. Please pre-book your preferred pick-up time, which is either 12h00 or 15h00.

Guests with 4x4 vehicles can proceed straight to the lodge by following the “Coastal Forest Reserve” and “Thonga Beach Lodge” signs. Due to the condition of the road, we ask that guests refrain from travelling after 16h00. We suggest filling your vehicle with fuel before getting to the lodge (either in Hluhluwe or Jozini) as there is no fuel available at the lodge.

RECOMMENDED ROUTE FROM JOHANNESBURG (8-9 HRS)

Head to Piet Retief and Pongola then proceed on the N2 south towards Mkuze. Approximately 45km from Pongola and 10km before Mkuze turn left towards Jozini. On leaving Jozini take a left turn towards the “Coastal Forest Reserve and KwaNgwanasi” (signposted), ensuring that you are proceeding over the Pongola dam wall. After 45km at a T-junction turn right towards “KwaNgwanasi”. Proceed for another 47 km and at the circle turn right towards “Coastal Forest Reserve”.

You will see a large government sign indicating directions to Mabibi, Rocktail Bay etc. It is 4.7km along this road to the Coastal Cashew Factory on your right hand side, where you will be collected.

*Please note that the Jozini route often has cattle wandering across it, some of the signs have fallen down and so caution and slower driving speeds are necessary. Suggest you fill up your fuel tank in Jozini as there is no fuel available at the lodge.
