We'll bid the Elephant Coast farewell today as we head further south to our new base of Scottburgh. On the way there's another chance to view amazing wildlife with a stop at St Lucia and the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, whose name translates to 'miracle' or 'something wondrous'. South Africa's first UNESCO-listed site consists of three major lake systems, eight ecosystems, most of South Africa's remaining swamp forests and 25,000-year-old sand dunes, which are among the highest in the world. It is also where you'll find more than 500 species of birds and over 6,500 types of plant and animal. The best way to explore this unique area is aboard the luxurious double-decked ferry, Advantage Cruiser, and that's exactly what you'll do. Over a couple of hours you'll see animals in their natural habitat, with close encounters with hippos and crocodiles a breathtaking highlight. The knowledgeable guides on board will tell you all about Africa's largest estuarine system and help you spot fish eagles, kingfishers, herons and more. After disembarking, lunch is included in the town of St Lucia before we continue to Scottburgh. This will be your base for the next six nights, and your accommodation, the Blue Marlin Hotel, is located just steps from the beach.
