Area Information

St Lucia is a settlement in the Umkhanyakude District in the KwaZulu Natal province of South Africa. The small town is mainly a hub for the greater St Lucia Wetlands Park. Evidence of early humans living in the caves high up in the Lebombo mountains dating back 130,000 years ago have provided scientists with clues regarding the lifestyle of these prehistoric settlers. From this cave alone some 69,000 stone implements, and various human remains have been recovered. Some of these tools date back to the middle and early stone ages (130,000 to 30,000 years ago).

In 1822, St. Lucia was proclaimed by the British as a township. In 1895, St. Lucia Game Reserve, 30 km north of the town, was proclaimed. Since 1971, St. Lucia Lake and the turtle beaches and coral reefs of Maputaland have been listed by the Convention on Wetlands of International Importance (Ramsar Convention). In December 1999, the park was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. The park is also home to about 1,200 Nile Crocodiles and almost 800 hippopotamuses. Hippos often roam the streets at night. Other animals include leopards, Kudu, Black Rhinos, exotic birds and numerous invertebrates.
