Tsongacultural tours

The iSimangaliso area is home to the wonderfully hospitable Tsonga people, who have made this land their home for more than 1000 years.

As part of the Thonga Beach Lodge experience, we believe in creating a human bridge between our wilderness areas and the local communities so that the flow of benefits to these communities motivates them to protect these precious resources. Our local Tsonga guides will proudly take you to a local homestead, school and clinic so that you can experience how the Tsonga people go about their day-to-day lives. There’s no additional charge for this activity.
