Gem of a cottage for sale situated in a truly unique place, the Western Shores Game Reserve of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park (previously known as the Greater St. Lucia Wetland Park) in an area called ‘Makakatana.’
Regular visitors on the lawn around the homestead are Warthogs, Bushbuck, Nyala and Red Duiker. The variety of birdlife in the area is phenomenal. When the Night jar calls it’s last in the early morning the Fish Eagle gives his wake up call!
Self-drive game drives in the park are most rewarding and are only a minute away.
The sounds of Hyenas, Hippo’s, Buck barking/whistling, Bush babies, Water Thick-knees, Nightjars and Owls at night add to the magic of the area.
On those extra quiet nights or mornings, you can hear the waves breaking on the shores of ‘Mission Rocks’. You can also hear the throb of a distant ship in the Indian Ocean
